Fly Fishing

Enjoy an All-Inclusive, Orvis-endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge
The Home Ranch is an Orvis-endorsed fly fishing lodge with about three miles of the Elk River flowing through the property. The Elk River is a classic rocky mountain freestone river that supports abundant populations of wild rainbow, brown, brook, and cutthroat trout. While the average trout is ten to sixteen inches in length, several rainbows are caught each year that reach twenty inches in length

Fish the Elk River, North of Steamboat Springs
The Elk River level changes significantly throughout the season. During spring runoff, the river is almost un-fishable. Depending on snowfall amounts, the river begins to drop around the first of July and continues its descent throughout the rest of the summer. There is also a private pond stocked with rainbow trout just a few yards from the main lodge.

All-Inclusive Fishing Trips: Guides and Gear are Available
Your fly fishing trip to The Home Ranch is an all-inclusive vacation. There are no extra fees for using our guides. The Home Ranch also provides rods, waders and flies for you to use, but we also realize that you may be more comfortable with your personal equipment and we encourage you to bring it if you prefer.

The Best Fly Fishing in Colorado Occurs in July Through September
The best nymph fishing is usually in mid-July as the river begins to warm and descend (some of the largest trout are caught this time of year). The best dry fly fishing is usually in August and September. The fall is a great time of year to hunt for trophy rainbows and browns with large streamer patterns.
