Whiskey & Fishing

August 31 - September 4th, 2016


Quite simply, late August is the best time of year for dry fly fishing our private waters on the Elk River. Join our Whiskey & Fishing getaway days. The Home Ranch is an Orvis endorsed fly fishing lodge with about three miles of the Elk River flowing through the property, and late August is the perfect time of year for dry fly fishing.  Fish the lower Elk River and try your hand at fly tying and casting clinics. 
Throughout your 4 night stay, we'll take you to the best holes on the river and ensure you have a healthy supply of Colorado Whiskey. When you're not casting, you can work on developing your cocktail skills in one of our mixology and juice classes. And if you want to improve your grilling skills, Clyde will be giving outdoor cooking demos at our new Farm Kitchen. As always, all the other great ranch activities are included, but you may be too busy fishing to do anything else...
The Elk River is a classic rocky mountain freestone river that supports abundant populations of wild rainbow, brown, brook, and cutthroat trout; along with great insect population. While the average trout is ten to sixteen inches in length, several rainbows are caught each year that reach twenty inches in length.. All in one day Brooke, Brown, Rainbow, and Cutthroat Trout can be yours for the Fly-Fishing Grand Slam.
