Enjoy 1 mile of the Colorado River with runs that dump into deep pools holding large brown trout. The best fishing is near the confluence where the creek meets the river. This property provides stunning red cliff views that include two pairs of nesting bald eagles. Fish range in the 12-22″ range. The walking access is fairly easy for younger anglers and people with mobility issues. There are some willows near the riverbank but they’re not difficult to navigate.

Please allow up to 2 business days for booking confirmations.

Due to livestock and other concerns, dogs and other pets are NOT permitted on this property.

    10/27/22 Colorado Cliffs. Beautiful water and property. It’s nice big water that cannot all be reached by wading but certainly enough of it to keep one busy for the day. Tried fishing with streamers but had all the luck with small nymphs.

    Two of us had a fantastic day earlier this week fishing the property. The flows on the Colorado were lower than normal for this time of year, but the water was a bit murky from runoff. We had the most success at the section near Rock Creek. The far bend of the river would have fished well, however the silt on the rocks and low visibility held us back from venturing over. We caught quite a few fish (Rainbows, Browns, one Whitefish, and one Sucker) in the 12-18″ range on all sections using (stonefly, baetis, sj worm, and caddis) nymph rigs, streamers, and even had a few dry fly eats. The landowner was incredibly gracious and helpful with information. The RW signage really helps to define the property boundaries and parking. You will also enjoy the scenery and wildlife (Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures). We will definitely visit this property again.

    Awesome stretch of the Colorado. Eagle’s nest with some babies!! Nice mix of wild browns and bows willing to eat anything presented well. The ranchers are super excited about their fishery!
