Antler Basin Ranch, through its relationship with the Fraser River Ranch, offers renters the ability to access private fly fishing on the Fraser River.
BEAUTIFUL FISH AND GORGEOUS SURROUNDINGS:
The Fraser River is a Colorado Gold Medal designated fly fishery in the Colorado high country with its headwaters on the west side of the Continental Divide on Berthoud Pass in Grand County. The Fraser is a free-stone river with no reservoir controls therefore providing an annual cleansing though sometimes
heavy runoff that helps to maintain the health of the river by clearing sediment. This creates healthy spawning beds and more than ample bug life for very healthy, strong trout.
Fraser River Ranch usually offers a stocked pond.
There is an additional fee for this private fly fishing access that will depend upon number of fishermen, guides, time of year, etc.
