The North Fork Meadows has a great
variety of water that accommodates anglers of all skill levels. It’s a
great combination of fast riffles, pocket water, long runs and deep
holes and is broken down into three different sections, the lower,
middle and upper North Fork Meadows.
The lower section of the
North Fork Meadows is a bit more technical that requires a skilled fly
caster and a steady wader. It’s fast riffles, overhanging brush and
challenging wading will test any angler’s skills. There are fish in all
the obvious places but a good first cast is usually the most rewarded.
Most of the fishing on the lower North Fork Meadows
is best done with nymphs. The fish hold in fast water and a lot of
weight is needed to get down to the fish. In a few of the bigger runs a
twitchy streamer will usually produce a fish or two. The lower North
Fork Meadows is best fished at lower flows and is usually a special
treat during falls lower flows.
The middle section of the North
Fork Meadows is the easiest section to fish and it has the
most variety of water. There are fast riffles, long runs, pocket water
and deep holes that produce some of the largest fish on the North Fork
of the South Platte River. This section fishes well no matter what the
flows are and is perfect for any angler. Short line or long line
nymphing is the norm but a good caster that likes throwing big flies
will fall in love with the streamer fishing. Every run, pocket and deep
pool holds huge trout that will crush a well presented streamer. The
North Fork Meadows offers some of the best streamer fishing in
Colorado, hands down. Come try it out and fish with a Colorado fly
fishing guide on private water.
The upper North Fork Meadows is the perfect way to end a great day of
private water Fly Fishing in Colorado.
The dry fly fishing in the afternoon can be absolutely incredible with
lots of bug hatches. In the summer and fall we get good numbers of
green drakes and red quills that come off in the afternoon. These
hatches produce some of the best dry fly fishing in Colorado. The North
Fork of the South Platte River splits into two sections on
the upper Meadows and the smaller channel is perfect for sight fishing.
