This (Gold Medal fishery) has roughly six thousand fish per square mile. We float from Carbondale to two river boat access. About 1.5 hrs drive from Steamboat the fork is a pretty sweet river with lots of tricky trout. Streamers, Nymphs and Dries all work well. The trout sizes range from 14-24. Green Drake hatch in July is a pretty awesome time to throw dries!
Running parallel to I-70 the Eagle River will surprise you by the size of the fish that are in the River. Big browns over 20 are usually seen on every trip. Catching trout on dries, nymphs and streamers is very common. The lower Eagle can produce some exceptionally nice fish. The drive is about 1 hr from Steamboat.
The section of the North Platte River we fish is wild and scenic.One of the last true freestone river left in Co. We fish from N.gate to prospect. This float is action packed from start to finish and is typically a very long day. The dry fly fishing can be epic and the wildlife amazing. The Salmon flies the first week in June starts getting good.
17 miles of private waters on one of the last great western Rivers in Colorado. Three different sections all with big wild fish. This is not a stocked fishery. If you like fish numbers these may not be for you. But if you like streamer hunting for big fish this is your place. The 4 M Ranch also has lodge if need.
