The Swan River is located off of Tiger Rd. in the beautiful Swan River Valley, about 3 miles north of Breckenridge, near the Golf Course. The Swan River provides good casting on numerous beaver ponds for small, feisty, mountain brook trout. The Swan begins in the North Fork of the valley and flows approximately 9 miles to join up with the Blue River. The Swan River has quite few restrictions when it comes to fishing, so be sure to check with the local authorities to be up with the rules.
The Swan River area is nestled near Breckenridge and offers stunning views of the mountains and river. The Breckenridge Golf Course is nearby, as well as numerous hiking and biking trails. This is a great area to do some fly-fishing (usually only artificial flies and lures are allowed) and enjoy the Rockies.
To get here from Keystone, simply take Highway 6 and connect with Swan Mountain Rd. and follow Swan Mountain Rd. until it connects with Highway 9 and continue south. Turn left off Highway 9 onto Tiger Rd. (CO Rd. 6). The river flows along this road, just follow this down a few miles until you find a good spot!
