Welcome to Rainbow Trout Ranch and Campground!

Hello Anglers and Campers,

We are now open for the fishing and camping season.  We are open for fishing Wednesdays through Sundays and holidays, from May 31st, through Labor Day.  Our hours of operation for fishing are 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  After Labor Day we will be open for fishing on weekends only until cold weather closes us down for the season.  The campground is open through October.

Our price for fish remains the same at $0.85 per inch under 12 inches and $1.05 per inch for fish 12 inches and larger.  Visit us early in the 2017 season to receive your Club Card.  Pay for 9 fish during the season, and your 10th fish is free.  (Free fish not to exceed 15 inches.)  As a service we will clean your fish and pack them in ice for your trip home.  If time permits, we will bone and fillet your fish as well.  An appropriate tip is expected for these services.

We have some changes to our staff this year.  I am managing all park operations, and we have a new high school student to help you with your fishing and camping needs.  Anthony is an experienced angler and avid fly fisherman, so be sure to say hello and let him know how he can help you.  We have also hired a Camp Host who is available to assist you as well.  Susan Fisher is handling camping reservations.  Please call her at 303-697-9427, or email RainbowTroutRanch@hughes.net.  Be sure to include a phone number in your email.

For those of you who are new to our website:  No fishing license is required to fish in our ponds.  We accept all major credit cards.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Vince Fisher, Park Manager
