Epic Spring Fishing. Book your dates before the feeding frenzy begins. 970.283.9420


You can practically smell the oil and the gun just thinking about it, and then feel the crisp morning air and the excitement in it as the dogs are ready and anxious to go. Warm-ups at the five-stand, the pheasant walk, or the flurry shoot are done with a desire to get out in the field with your dog. Or you can come out the afternoon of your arrival for shooting sports and take your time working up an appetite for dinner. Better still, you can participate in shooting sports any time of year to make sure you’re ready when fall comes and Wing Shooting season begins. Or just for fun! Every instructor at the ranch is NSCA Level 1 certified.

Cast & Blast trips are anglers’ and hunters’ favorites – participating in two of their favorite sports in one day. Fin & Feather Expedition trips take those one step further when you explore the diversity around the main ranch and get inspired by some of our big beautiful neighborhood. Shooting Sports are great fun in their own right at any time of year, but they get a lot of heated action in the fall when bird hunting is in season.

Epic Spring Fishing

The feeding frenzy begins in April: You'll want to be here after what seems like an eternity of winter. As winter fades, temperatures increase, and so it goes with a trout's feeding behavior. And in nature's flawlessly synchronized plan, the long-awaited mayflies start to emerge. Trout are coming out of hibernation and their metabolisms are on overdrive. It is the rare and perfect set of circumstances for fly-fishing. The only thing missing is you. Book your dates now.
