    I want to try the Rifle this fall, but I hear there aren't many places to access the river. Does anybody know a spot where I can check it out? I'd just be wading. I don't care what point on the river it is either.

    I am not looking for anyone's sweet spot, I just need a place to park my truck (and not have it towed) within about a 1 mile walk at the most.

    Please PM me if necessary.

    I will not in anyway disclose this information to anyone else besides my gf:)

    Also, don't worry, I have no fishing partners or anyone who'd even care if I told them about a spot (which I wouldn't anyway).

    P.S. If anyone knows a good place for lodging/camping this time of year, I'd appreciate that too.

    Thanks,

    Just follow rifle river trail from alger north along the river, all the way to sage lake rd. lots of places if you keep your eyes open for them. Looks for small roads heading twards river, or just parking areas. Won't see river alot, until you get out and looks for steps or trail in most cases. Are a few places you can drive right down to river though.

    there are places to stay in rose city if you want to go up that way. west branch might be closer if you plan on fishing below 55
