We think you'll agree: the North Fork Ranch is the premier destination for the best fly fishing Colorado has to offer.


North Fork Ranch is an excellent operation with an amazing staff! It all started with excellent communication from Jeff who was timely and accommodating to all our request and needs prior to the trip. Our group of 3 visited the ranch on Dec 4th. We had three anglers, all of different abilities, and everyone had an outstanding time. The guides were great, food was great, the weather was perfect and fishing was awesome! If you are looking for a 1st class fishing experience this is the place to go!



Jeff Poole once again gave us an amazing day at North Fork Ranch. From the 2nd cast to the final cast we were on fish the entire morning. I have been fly fishing with Jeff for almost 10 years and still learn something new every time we hit the water.

Thanks again for taking care of me and my guests.



We had a terrific half day at North Fork Ranch. Tim was one of the best guides I have had in 30 years of fly fishing. He was able to help a beginner while putting all of us on good “honey holes” all day. Will definitely be back. Thank you Tim!



We fish often with Jeff Poole, head guide of North Fork Ranch Guides and have stayed at the lodge. We live close to the lodge so we don't always stay. The lodge is great, with fabulous owners. The guides are exceptional and Jeff is one of the best guides we have used. Patient, focused on education and taking care of the client and the fish and the river

This was probably my 5th time fishing with guides from North Fork Ranch. We had an incredible day of fishing and our group was all smiles all day. The guides are patient, knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend spending a day with these guys as you won't be disappointed, no matter your skill set.



We had an awesome time fishing with Tim. This was our second time at North Fork Ranch and the first time fishing with them. 10 out of 10 would do it again.
