Looking for suggestions!!

I am planning a trip for next year and would like some assistance. I am looking at the Roaring Fork River and the Frying Pan River. The Blue River has also caught my attention. We like to wade fish but also drift when we travel. Looking for the following:

*Fishing where there are no crowds.
*Recommendations for a guide service.
*Best time of the year to go.
*Accommodations.

If you have other rivers to recommend that would be fine.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Ok, your #1 request about no crowds, those three rivers are not what you want.

The Eagle river is an overlooked and fantastic river. As the fish go, the Eagle has more quantity & quality of fish.

Minturn anglers is a good place to find guides, I highly recommend them.

The runoff is happening now and will last through June, but by the second week of July it should be prime time.

If you want to try the other rivers go ahead and try the Blue Quill Anglers fly shop. But the Eagle is beautiful, and not heavily fished.
