Fly Fishing

Fly Fishing

The ranch’s home water, Jakey’s Fork of the Wind River, runs fast and clear. The CM owns four miles of the stream, allowing guests to fish privately for wild brown, rainbow and brook trout. Surrounding waters are the famous Wind River and its tributaries, and glacially carved Torrey, Ring and Trail lakes. All are short drives from the ranch.  You may purchase a nonresident license in town or visit from the ranch.

The CM country is filled with productive, uncrowded water in which to test your skill. Whether you are a beginner, or a seasoned angler, the CM offers the opportunity to experience western fly fishing in beautiful wild settings. The Ranch has equipment available for guests, and our own professional fishing guide, Eric Victoriano, who is very knowledgeable about local waters. Catch and release is encouraged.
