We had a blast rafting with the Bucking Rainbow crew. They were knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The lunch was delicious and even though it rained (and they offered jackets), we had a great time. My children in attendance are 8, 10, 11, & 11. They rode the bull the entire trip!

The staff went out of their way to ensure we could safely traverse the rapids on the Yampa River which was running very high and very fast. We had to get low in our boats to go under a few of the bridges. We had a fun time and really appreciated the care they took with all riders - young... More

I called last Thursday, all be it after hours at about 7PM. The guy who answered my call was very helpful in taking my reservation for a rafting trip with two guys on the Elk River for the following Saturday. I was surprised but happy to hear he had room for me and a buddy. I asked what else I... More

I have gone into this retail store on multiple occasions. I am not an angler by any means but have a lot of friends and relatives who are. I would need help to purchase gifts for others and I would have willingly given my business to the Bucking Rainbow had any of the employees offered help. I live and work... More

As an avid angler I wanted to get out on some Steamboat waters with a great local guide. We went out with Mike, who is an outstanding person and great guide. Bucking rainbows has great private access. The store itself is very well appointed and has some nice smaller brands.

We surprised my parents with a weekend in Steamboat for their 50th anniversary. Part of that surprise was a guided fly fishing trip on a private ranch. Bucking Rainbow had been recommended to us by numerous people and I see why! Everyone was professional and my parents LOVED it. That's all they talked about the rest of the weekend. They... More

This is a very exciting trip. However, it is not for the faint of heart. Be prepared to be thrown out into the rapids. The guides were super! They really know their stuff & prepare you for what's ahead. Highly recommended for the adventurous and those who can swim well. It includes transportation to the rapids, all equipment, and lunch.

Our Elk River white water rafting guides were goofy, fun, yet very knowledgable and made us feel at ease. The whole experience was very memorable and one of the most fun things I've done! The store is great too!
