Fantastic Dude Ranch Fishing Vacations


You'll Have a Great Time Here In Trout Heaven.

If you love to fish, vacationing at Colorado Trails Ranch is the place for you. Not just because we love fishing too, it just so happens that this part of Colorado features some of the finest trout fishing around. As our guests, you’ll be able to experience the action on some of the best fishing spots in the state. We also introduce lots of non-fishermen to this great sport. 

Gordy Herrick, college math teacher (has a lot of patience) and lifetime fisherman, heads our fishing program. He has been sharing his passion for fishing with our guests for over a decade. He and his assistants teach beginners of all ages the basics of fly fishing, and know right where to take them for that exciting first catch. For our accomplished fishing guests, Gordy and our guides will introduce you to some challenging spots where you can test your skills against some mighty cagey trout.


More Fishing Spots Than Fit Into One Week

Colorado Trails Ranch has over two miles of private water on the Florida River, with some excellent fishing spots. We also have access to cold mountain streams and other rivers in the area, as well as fully stocked private ranch ponds. On your all inclusive vacation at our dude ranch, you’ll have access to the guides and equipment you need during your stay. We have a fully stocked fly shop for all your needs.
