Trout Angling in Southern Colorado
4UR Ranch is now open to the public, and we are looking forward to get anglers of all skill levels back into beautiful Goose Creek. One of the more traditional aspects of a Dude Ranch vacation at 4UR Ranch is fishing on the creek. Before we were “duding”, Wagon Wheel Gap, where the ranch sits, had attracted past generations with exceptional fishing and natural hot springs. Goose Creek flows into the Rio Grande, and makes it’s way down towards Mexico, but before it reaches the Rio, it is some of America’s only private tailwaters, meaning the the water only passes through one piece of private property before it reaches the guest ranch.
We are currently in the middle of a kids stay free week at 4UR. It has been fun to see fathers and their children bond over the activity of fishing. It happens every year, and has been as long as humans have known to take from the bounty of the sea and stream. Imagine throwing dry flies to the big wild Browns and Rainbows in Goose Creek, or exploring the pristine high mountain stream for big Cutthroats. Come and start your next adventure! We use a lottery system that makes sure that each angler gets to pick a private station on the creek. You end up with solitude, peacefulness and a great chance to catch exciting fish. Of course this is also part of a fabulous horseback riding vacation that you will be able to partake in.
