About Us

Get to Know North Fork Ranch

Our vision is to be Colorado’s best fly fishing guide service.

Our mission is to ensure the best experience for our clients, by continuing to develop our unique guide culture through leadership and mentorship while managing our fisheries for the best fly fishing opportunities.

The North Fork Ranch Guide Service was established in 1996 by Kevin Gregory, with the goal of entertaining guests of the North Fork Ranch on the water. With the increased popularity of fly fishing there were more and more guests interested in giving fly fishing a try. With the addition of different management practices on our stretch of river, the popularity of the North Fork Ranch Guide Service started to become something of legend. A fishery an hour from Denver, where a fisherman has an excellent chance to land that “fish of a lifetime”.

Welcoming Visitors SInce 1985

The North Fork Ranch was opened in 1985 by the May family and was primarily a Colorado Dude Ranch for over thirty years. With the increased traffic from fly fisherman and the decreased interest in dude ranching, the North Fork Ranch started shifting toward becoming a fishing lodge in the late 90s. By 2015, the North Fork Ranch was becoming one of the more popular Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodges in the area. Still offering all the fun ‘dude ranch’ activities, the North Fork Ranch has a fun and unique ambiance catering to adventures and anglers alike.

As our operation has grown, the vision of the North Fork Ranch Guide Service has shifted over the years. Our number one goal is to ALWAYS provide a well rounded experience for our anglers. From our managed fisheries along the North Fork of the South Platte River to our more traditional dry fly fisheries in South Park, we strive to accommodate anglers of all skill levels. As our journey continues our goal will remain the same. NFRGS will continue to teach and grow our sport, hopefully catch a few fish, and see each and every client leave with a grin. There is nothing more rewarding to any of us than a happy client on the water!
