ORVIS ENDORSED FLY FISHING IN A PREMIER COLORADO RANCH SETTING

DISCOVER WHY A VACATION AT NORTH FORK RANCH IS SUPERIOR VALUE OVER OTHER VACATION OPTIONS
Established in 1985, North Fork Ranch rests quietly along one-half mile of the tranquil North Fork of the South Platte River. Our 520 acre ranch sits at an elevation of 8100 ft. and adjoins the Pike National Forest, Lost Creek Wilderness and Mt. Evans Wilderness. The Continental Divide with its 14,000 foot snow-capped peaks is always visible to our west.

The North Fork valley is oriented east and west, boasting amazing sunsets and long relaxing days of sunshine. The fresh evening air will sway your curtains and the quiet of the mountains will give you a magical night of sleep.

WE'VE "GOT FISH"

If fly fishing is your passion, you’ve found the perfect spot! Only fifty yards off the back porch of our Colorado fishing lodge you’ll find the tranquil North Fork of the South Platte River teeming with Rainbow, Brown & Cutthroat Trout. Fish you will remember for a lifetime. Whether you are here for the day, multiple days, or the entire week, you will always want “one more day”.
