Welcome to Riffle and Rise Outfitters!

Owner and Fly Fishing Guide, John BocchinoRiffle and Rise Outfitters offers guided fly fishing trips in Gunnison, Colorado. If you're planning a fishing trip, I highly recommend the Gunnison Valley as a destination. And if you're looking for a fly fishing guide, I hope you'll consider fishing with me. I enjoy what I do and would love to share a day on the river with you.

Riffle and Rise Outfitters is located in the heart of the Gunnison Valley at nearly 8,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains. The Gunnison area is home to some of the best trout rivers in the country, including the Gunnison River, Taylor River, and East River. And you can also chase wild trout and native cutthroat on our many small creeks. This part of the Colorado Rockies is truly a fly fisher's paradise, with pristine rivers and spectacular mountain scenery. It is why I have lived and guided clients here since 2006.
