Sheephorn Ranch

The views from the lake are breathtaking, and the fishing is some of the most spectacular high lake fishing in Colorado! Last season while belly boating the lake, a large black bear came down for a drink and was kind enough to let us observe him at a distance for most of the afternoon!

Rod fee $125 per person.

This fly fishing ranch consists of 3 lakes. The lower 2 lakes contain nice rainbow trout and cutbows with an occasional brown trout. They are a good warm-up for the upper lake that is the crown jewel of the property.

The upper lake is located at about 10,000 feet and is accessible only by 4-wheel drive. This lake has produced big brook trout up to 20 inches with large brookies 15-18 inches. The lake also has some large cut-bows, and a handful of big rainbow trout also call the lake home.

As long as the weather is nice, the dry fly fishing is amazing. These hungry brook trout often attack large foam flies with stunning aggression. Anglers stalking along the shoreline can target individual fish as they feed along the banks. This makes for exciting Colorado fly fishing action!
