Fly Fishing

Activity Description

We own a mile-and-a-half stretch of upper Flat Creek’s challenging waters and the 50-acre Flat Creek Lake. And you’ll have access to another five miles of fast riffles and deep pools on public land just west of our ranch. Our rule is: Fly fishing only, catch-and-release. Our favorite spot on the ranch is the “Curt Gowdy hole,” a deep and placid bend in Flat Creek where wily cutthroats and scrappy brook trout congregate. Some of our guests prefer stalking the big cutthroats that hide in the clear, deep channel that winds through the lake. Luckily for dry fly purists, Flat Creek is blessed with prolific hatches of mayflies, caddis flies and a host of others. We can lend you fly rods, reels, nets and waders; we also provide a free fly-fishing clinic for those who want to learn or brush up on fishing techniques.
