Tomahawk State Wildlife Area

The Middle Fork of The South Platte River meanders through Tomahawk State Wildlife Area, creating a unique fishery considered by locals to be some of the most intimate small stream fishing in Colorado. Nestled just upstream of Hartsel, this area provides a stunning backdrop for anglers to enjoy. Shrubs and brush line the banks of the meandering stream, while brilliantly colored rock outcroppings force the stream to curve and meander through beaver ponds and beautiful pools. Rainbows, browns and an occasional cutthroat trout inhabit this section of the South Platte. If the timing is right the fishing can be fun with lots of action.
