Fly Fishing From A Spectacular Ranch — Colorado (CO) Package:200917

For the discriminating angler who desires an exclusive fly fishing adventure that includes outstanding waters, exceptional service and beautiful strong fish, look no further. We offer an unparalleled fly fishing adventure, including the chance to catch a "once in a lifetime" trout.

We consistently offer a first rate fishing experience. The pro shop features a variety of fly fishing equipment and is fully stocked to match the current hatch. Rental equipment is also available.

With approximately two hundred square miles of pristine wilderness, miles of private water and a guide staff with over seventy collective years of guiding experience, you are sure to find the perfect challenge for your angling skills. If you desire, let our instructors help you improve your angling skills or attend one of our fishing clinics.

Anglers appreciate the challenge and private serenity of fishing in such natural and remote surroundings. It seems the trout enjoy it, too. The savvy angler has been known to catch rainbows up to 34" and over 12 pounds. The Ranch also has beautiful German brown, fat and sassy Snake River cutthroat and gorgeous brook trout. The early morning and late afternoon hours traditionally bring the best fly fishing opportunities, but consistently fine action can usually be experienced throughout the day.

All of the guides at here have years of angling training and experience. The guides diligently note the best fishing spots to ensure you enjoy a complete fly fishing adventure, matched to your angling expertise. We closely monitor our fly fishing resource and provide you with exclusive access to all of our private waters.

The Ranch offers many miles of a stillwater spring fed creek, eight managed lakes and over 80 natural beaver ponds, all on private land. Our waters are continuously maintained and offer a user-friendly streamside allowing easy access to the waters. Unlike other fly fishing areas that must wait for the spring run off to cease before their season begins, our long stretches of deep spring waters are ready for your fly fishing enjoyment by early March. In addition, the numerous beaver dams provide the optimum setting for continuous hatches . The venue is large trout in small waters as you progress along Dry Fork Creek, which runs the length of the private valley. Some places are easy fishing while others are extremely challenging. Most of the waters at the Ranch are sight fishing. What a thrill it is to watch your "lifetime trophy trout" come up and take your fly!

In addition to the fabulous fly fishing you will experience here, we also offer you additional wade and float excursions. Nearby are the famous Colorado River, White River, Roaring Fork River and Gionettes Spring Creek. Enjoy a complete Western Colorado fishing experience by visiting these famous waters. Our guides are waiting to take you on one or more of these fine fishing adventures.

Location and Fishing Information

Fly Fishing From A Spectacular Ranch - The ultra private Ranch and its Bureau of Land Management (BLM) permitted lands encompass approximately 200 square miles. The ranch sprawls across Garfield County, Colorado with some parcels extending into Mesa County. The lodge and headquarters are located in the North Dry Fork Valley only a short 30 minute ride from the Grand Junction airport or a scenic three hour drive from Denver on interstate I-70.

In 2005 we proudly joined with Cabela's as a Cabela's certified destination. For you, that means you can be assured of quality fishing and hunting, prompt courteous service and first rate accommodations. The cozy and comfortable lodging at the ranch is a collection of seven cabins, the Pond house and a main guest Lodge spread throughout the property. Much of the furniture at the ranch has been locally handcrafted to specifically enhance the abundant western charm of the resort. The relaxing guest rooms are highlighted by breathtaking views of the Colorado wilderness.

The Ranch has several cozy private cabins throughout the resort. The two bedroom, two bath, kitchen, dining and sitting area design of the Forshay cabin is very comfortable for four people. This cabin also has an adjacent cook and guide cabin (two bedrooms, one bath). These are located eight miles up our valley from the ranch headquarters. View your own private valley from the deck of your cabin or just relax by the cozy wood stove.

The Hay Canyon Cabin is a wonderfully secluded lodge reserved primarily for big game hunters or a family seeking seclusion. This well equipped private cabin is set in an exclusive area of the ranch, nestled in its own private valley adjacent to beautiful rock formations and aspens. It has a full kitchen, fireplace, deck, three bedrooms and a full bath.

For equestrians, we offer the McKay Fork cabins located behind our locked gates to ensure complete privacy. These renovated log cabins are situated in the heart of our property.
