Fly-Fishing on the Little Colorado River
Watersports in Greer, CO.
The pastoral hamlet of Greer feels more Montana than Arizona, with its lush mountain valley and unparalleled fly-fishing. The pint-size community is set along the Little Colorado River—whose 23 miles worth of waters teem with brown, Apache, and rainbow trout. You’ll need a license and will have the best luck in the summer.
Greer Lodge Resort
The property has 23 luxurious lodge-style suites—each with rough-hewn log walls, cozy living rooms, and fireplaces—set on a pastoral 20-acres. Guests at the lodge can take full advantage with free fly-fishing equipment and lessons.
373 Bar & Grill Restaurant
Feast on a heaping plate of French toast, rolled in sliced almonds and cornflakes and slathered in maple syrup.
Sunrise General Store
Pick up a fishing permit (or an ice fishing permit, in the winter) at a reasonable $6 per day. The one-stop shop also carries bait.
Greer Mountain Resort Country Café
There aren’t many frills as this wood-bedecked café, but it’s got a fireplace and serves all sorts of comfort food: biscuits and gravy, homemade soups, and all sorts of cobblers (try the peach, apple, or blackberry).
