This historic cattle ranch was founded in 1868. It has been in the family for 7 generations and still runs an active cattle operation. Enjoy just over one mile of the Little Arkansas River which has had river restoration work completed over the past several years. The average brown trout will be around 12″ but a few big fish in the 14-18″ range linger in the deeper holes. Please do not try and pet the calves. Their mothers are very protective. River access is easy for people of all ages.

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.

    Great stream lot of pools and fish habitat. 13 or so catches, all browns with one fat 15” bow. All on top with small hopper. Enjoyed the day.

    Great place to spend a morning fishing! Water was a little low due to late august, but still a nice stretch of river with some good trout habitat. Finally found a 14 in brown tucked under a waterfall a rock near a water fall. Owners checked in and were very nice and I would recommend for sure!

    My son and I fished this property June 1, 2021. We caught lot’s of 10 – 14 inch Browns tight line nymphing. Downstream from the parking area restoration work has been done and the result is some nice runs and glides that were fun to fish. Upstream from the parking area you’ll find some nice pocket water. If you like fishing smaller water this property is a good option. Beautiful location just outside of Salida and perfect for 1 – 2 anglers.

    I was able to fish here early season (April) … aesthetically beautiful property! Smaller stream fishing which I love, great surroundings, lots of river work. Great time. I also met the owner and her friend on the way out — super nice and welcoming!
