The South Platte River

A Gold Medal western trout river, the South Platte River flows through seven dams between South Park and Denver. The South Platte is primarily known for the tailwaters, Cheeseman Canyon, Elevenmile Canyon, and the Dream Stream below Spinney Mountain Reservoir (Charlie Meyers). All located around an hour from the North Fork Ranch.
Fishing opportunities range from technical tailwater fishing, to small creek fishing. Let our experienced fly fishing guides take you on a public fly fishing trip you will not forget. 

South Platte Tributaries

 The middle Fork of the South Platte, the South Fork of the South Platte, and Tarryall Creek are about 15 miles outside of Fairplay Colorado.  The higher reach of the South Platte River are home to endless miles of meandering small creeks. Average fish might be smaller, but they are more opportunistic. Dry/Dropper fishing. Located about an hour from the ranch.
