Bradfield Bridge Recreation Site and Bradfield Bridge

Located east of Cahone, Colorado, Bradfield Bridge Recreation Site and Bradfield Bridge are good areas for fishing and rafting. The recreation area is just downstream of the bridge and has picnic areas and a boat ramp into the Dolores River. Rafters can float 19 miles ahead into the Dolores River Canyon just past the Dove Creek pump station to Mountain Sheep Point Recreation Site (the starting point of the Snaggletooth Trail), where the next boat ramp awaits. Rafters can end their journey there or continue onward toward Slick Rock, Colorado, where bigger rapids such as Snaggletooth (Class IV-V) await.

Fish may be kept downstream of he Bradfield Bridge. Fish caught between the bridge and McPhee Dam are catch-and-release only.
