Rawhide Meadows

Explore the Majestic Rawhide Meadows and Find a Fly Fishing Haven

The North Fork of the South Platte River is home to some of the best fly fishing waters around, and Rawhide Meadows is a true haven for anglers. Not only does it offer excellent fishing in a pristine restored stream, but Rawhide Meadows also features the beauty of the Rocky Mountains as the perfect backdrop for a memorable day of fly fishing. This is also one of our new favorite destinations at North Fork Ranch Guide Service.

The sparkling, clear waters flowing along the North Fork of the South Platte are supplemented by water coming from the other side of the Continental Divide by way of the Roberts Tunnel. The merging of these two waters creates a perfect environment for trout. Gentle curves make wading easy, while numerous oxbow curves, cut banks, and challenging pocket water mean that you'll be able to find an ideal spot to cast, no matter what your level of experience. And, since Rawhide Meadows is private land, you'll be treated to an undisturbed day on the waters, away from crowds and noise. Of course, it's always best to schedule your trip with one of our guides at North Fork Ranch Guide Services sooner than later. Since the number of anglers is limited, spots fill up fast.

What Can You Catch on the Private Waters of Rawhide Meadows?

The gorgeous stream at Rawhide Meadows is home to both rainbow and brown trout. Not only are they numerous, but we've even seen them grow up to 24 inches! We've been especially pleased with our success during hopper season. The trout here are particularly susceptible to dry fly fishing, and much of this private stretch of water is perfect for casting. What's more, the wide range of water features and conditions here mean great fly fishing for everyone from beginners to seasoned fly fishing enthusiasts. And, since this stretch of the South Platte is home to so many large trout, you're likely to get the catch of a lifetime. We understand if you find yourself planning your return to Rawhide Meadows before the first visit ends. That seems to happen a lot when fishing with North Fork Ranch Guide Services.
