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 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 ... within whose willows is the home of the wild Colorado Brook Trout. These creatures are a beautiful and tasty prize for those with the patience and skill to stalk them. In addition to the fishing opportunities we offer, there are five public lakes within a fifteen minute drive.
