step 2 Explore private ranches and book easily

step 3 Pay for your trip securely online

step 4 Enjoy your private fly fishing experience


Enjoy over 1 mile of the Michigan River, a hidden gem tucked away in the small town of Walden, Colorado in North Park. This property is surrounded by mountainous views. Rainbow and brown trout swim through the winding waters and take cover under the willows from the Golden and Bald Eagles. Trout range from 12-20″ inches so leave the small fly rod at home. There are plenty of accessible spots for younger anglers and people with mobility issues but there are also some heavily willowed areas on the riverbank. We love hitting these heavily willowed spots as that’s where bigger trout linger.

Please allow up to 2 business days for booking confirmations.

Lodging is also available at this property. There are two options. The Lakeview cottage (3-bedroom, 2 bath house within 60 yards of Colorado’s largest privately owned lake) costs $450/night + cleaning fee. The Little Moose Cottage (7-bedroom house 30 feet inland from the Lakeview Cottage) costs $400/night + cleaning fee. Lodging can be booked directly through property owners. If you’re interested, please let us know and we’ll put you in touch! : )

    This location is one of the most scenic locations you’ll find. Absolutely beautiful with mountains on all sides. We had a bald eagle fly over…and saw sign of moose everywhere.
    Water was a bit low, as to be expected this year. Super clear as well. When the clouds came in, we saw a ton of activity with a dry-dropper setup. Everything we caught was on the dry. Nothing of size, but tons of small, native brown trout.
    It was a great day in a beautiful setting. Highly recommend this location.
