Vista Verde Guest Ranch - Fishing

Contact Info
58000 Cowboy Way
Steamboat Springs, CO 80428



The crystal clear mountain water of the quiet lakes and rushing streams of Vista Verde make for some of the best fishing in America. Since we are small in terms guest capacity we have the capability to cater to the needs of our anglers. Our guides are very knowledgeable about the area waters and strive to create a unique experience with one-on-one instruction and some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable. And, because of the abundance of other activities, while you go out after that perfect catch, the others are having fun riding, rock climbing, rafting, hiking, biking, more. For the novice or experienced angler, Vista Verde is a wonderful place to experience fishing at its finest.

Rainbow Trout and Brook trout are the two main species of trout at Vista Verde. On most of our local rivers, the Rainbows range in size from 14" up to 28". In our mountain streams, the Brook Trout range from 8" to 16". It is not uncommon for someone fishing our smaller streams to land twenty plus fish in a day.

When we fish on Colorado River, Browns make up 90% of the fish population. The Elk River holds Brookies, Rainbow, Browns and Cutthroats.

The ranch also has two stocked ponds with Rainbows ranging from 14” to 24”. With the capability of accessing so many different types of rivers and streams, and the variety of different species of trout, it is very unusual for any of the anglers to get skunked. Our experienced guides will put our guests on fish!

All of our guides are available for casting or tying lessons and guided trips any time throughout the week. Most of the fishing is catch-and-release except for the high mountain streams.
