Fly Fishing Expeditions at the High Lonesome Ranch

Explore the diversity around the main ranch and be inspired by some of our big beautiful neighborhood. Imagine creating a fly-fishing adventure designed to fit your individual needs and desires. Now it’s possible. In 2014 the Ranch introduced its new Expeditions Program.

When it comes to fly-fishing and wing shooting for individual sportsmen and families alike, The High Lonesome Ranch serves it up with a real western flair.

HLR now features memorable float trips on two of Colorado’s premier fly-fishing rivers: the Roaring Fork and Lower Colorado plus an outstanding hike and wade trip on the Frying Pan. Even though fishing these rivers requires a short shuttle, it can all be done while staying at the sprawling main ranch on the Western Slope of the Colorado Rockies.

To explore the best trout fishing in the West, just book one or two days at the ranch, one day at the K-T, and a float trip on the Roaring Fork, or let us help you design your own adventure.

Let us satisfy your angling soul that always wants more. A river is different every time you fish it, but imagine the diversity of 3 rivers in one trip.
