Located on the renowned North Fork of the Cache La Poudre River, we are an angler’s paradise. In addition to the naturally established population of Cutthroat, Brown and Brook Trout, we stock beautiful, full size Rainbow Trout annually.

Beaver Meadows Resort Ranch features three fishing/casting ponds just footsteps from our restaurant and lodging facilities. They are ideal for the novice fisherman and a joy to the seasoned angler due to the sheer abundance of trout that they hold. For the more adventurous, just a short trek from the base facilities places you amongst a maze of beaver ponds. Our River Path Trials winds through these willows brining you to the best fishing holes. This is a great opportunity for adults to introduce the art of the angler to their children.

Area Fishing

Red Feather Lakes Village, approximately fifteen minutes away, also has eight private lakes that are fully stocked (Erie, Shagwa, Hiawatha, Laticia, Romona, Snake, Apache and Nokomus).

Crystal Lakes area, which is 10 minutes away, offers excellent fishing at Crystal lake, Little Lone Pine, Big Lone Pine and Panhandle creek.

In addition to the fishing opportunities we offer, there are five public lakes (Belaire, Dowdy, West, Parvin and Creedmore) within a fifteen minute drive. The Poudre Canyon, a thirty minute drive away, is a recognized Wild and Scenic Route and another wonderful opportunity for the angler.

With one week advanced reservations we would be happy to acquire passes for whichever area you choose to fish.

Bait fishing is allowed in both Red Feather and Crystal Lake areas

Fishing Regulations

Colorado State requires fishing licenses, even on private land.  The state rules, given with the license, must be followed.  Injured fish must be kept and paid for at $4.50 a pound.  Only barbless hooks are allowed.

Ice Fishing

We dedicate one side of our hourglass shaped ponds just for the winter angler.  In addition to the natural habitat of brown and brook trout, we stock rainbow trout annually.  Bring your auger and drill a few holes to watch for the day. Please be advised that we no longer rent augers or ice fishing equipment.

Take your thermos into our Ranch House Restaurant & Lounge and we’ll fill it with hot chocolate or coffee for a small fee.  At the end of the day, warm up to a bowl of hot chili and tell your tall tale of the one that got away.

We offer ice fishing during the winter season seven days a week, from 9:30am to 4:00pm.

There are also five public lakes within a fifteen minute drive of Beaver Meadows Resort Ranch.
