Solitude can be priceless. For some, the ability to fly fish in settings such as these makes the entire experience. We are proud to work with some of the finest private water fisheries in the American West. Private waters give you an incredible opportunity to really slow down and learn the nuances of fly fishing as well as enhancing the feeling of getting away from it all. The following destinations are our top picks for private water fly fishing across the Rockies. The options are varied and rewarding.

The fisheries at the High Lonesome Ranch are the byproduct of the ranch’s resident beaver population. For decades they’ve sharpened their teeth on the aspen, cottonwoods, and oaks that line North Dry Fork spring creek’s perimeter. Over time the downed trees have helped form a series of 18 spring-creek pools, each of which is full of heavy and healthy trout.

With more than 20 miles of essentially private rivers and streams and multiple still water venues, Brush Creek Ranch can keep a serious fly angler fishing new quality waters for weeks. This destinations offer a combination of high-quality private waters as well as public water fly fishing.
