Fishing

We are honored to have one of Colorado’s top-tier guides, Chris Eussen (of CE Flyfishing & Kirk’s Fly Shop) enjoying our private fly fishing waters with his special clients.

Check out his website link above if you want an adventure with a real pro who shares his life-long love of the great outdoors in a special way!

“Arrived on Mother Lake 8am on both Friday 6/7 and Monday 6/10. Lake is full, springs are running, water temps are getting warmer… big fish are still being caught! Both days fished identical. Both leading to trophies! 1st day with 3 anglers (Fred, Jared, and Jake) found fish hungry and active.

On Monday 3 anglers (Fred, Bruce, and Mark) also had a good day with plenty of action.

Fish were taken on Chironomids, Callibeates, and Damsel Nymphs. Read more on Fly Fishing Report ~ Summer Time Hog Hunting!…

Members of the Warrior Transition Unit of Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, many still active-duty, and other American Heroes from the Cheyenne/Fort Collins Veterans Administration, enjoyed two days of fly fishing on our private waters this past weekend.

One trooper told me, “Ma’am, this is the most relaxed I’ve been in three years.  Thank the cooks, the guides, the owners, the donors and everybody behind the scenes for helping us have a much-needed break from our norm.”  You are most welcome, Sergeant Nathan!

These smiles are almost as big as the fish that were caught!

As a fly fisherman I am someone who benefits from clean clear water and as a conservationist at heart I was only too happy to be included.
