This is a great area to go trout fishing. If you want to go down to our pond in the lower meadow and see if any lunker trout are hungry, please venture down there at any time. The biggest one caught so far is 22 inches long. The pond is stocked yearly with rainbow, brown and brook trout. We do have some fishing equipment available, but can‘t guarantee that it will be untangled when you find it. It is always best to bring a rod or two and some glitter power bait and rooster tail lures. You do not need a license to fish in the pond.
If you love fly fishing, we can steer you to the honey holes. You are welcome to line up a local fly fishing guide at your cost and enjoy a wonderful half day or whole day of fly fishing in the mountains. I would suggest Estes Park Anglers located in Estes Park. Please visit with WRR’s director Don McIntyre about the St. Vrain River, The Wild Basin area, or the Big Thompson River hot spots. There is a possibility that you might be able to talk him into fly-fishing on Wednesday afternoon on a private section of river.
