Abell River Ranch
This is one of the most gorgeous stretches of river in the state. Located an hour and forty five minutes from Denver, and under an hour from Colorado Springs, this is one of the most unique fisheries on the Front Range. With almost 3 miles of river and great lodging options nearby, many of our guests choose to book multiple days on this property as one day isn’t enough to explore it all. It is a classic, meadow stream with perfect riffles, runs, and deep bends located throughout. The bug life on this stretch of the South Platte is very impressive meaning you can catch fish here on a range of different flies or techniques. Our favorite way to target the local residents is with a dry dropper set up but nymphing and even streamer fishing great ways to get some of the larger fish out of the deep pockets. Come back in time and let us show you what Colorado fishing used to be like by exploring Abell River Ranch!
