Property Spotlight - The YR Ranch

The YR Ranch is a Featured Private Water and favorite fishing destination for Trouts Guide Service.  Located on the Lower Blue River just outside of Kremmling Colorado, this property is not to be missed by anyone looking for an opportunity to experience a world class Colorado trout fishery.

Late February through April is a unique season for the YR Ranch. During this time, rainbow trout push out of the Colorado River into the Lower Blue River and anglers get a chance to target large and aggressive fish.  This property offers a variety of amazing fishing situations - dries, nymphs and streamers can all be productive throughout the spring.  The property also fishes exceptionally during the summer and fall.

The YR ranch does not receive any stocking and produces many wild trophy trout each year.

Because of a five-year environmental rehabilitation project and long term management plan that is currently underway at the YR Ranch, access to this fishery is limited.  If you have an interest in exploring this property or if you have any questions, do not hesitate to call the shop.  Trout’s Guide Service is booking trips today.  These days will be booked so please do not hesitate if you have interest in fishing the YR Ranch this spring - call 877.464.0034 to reserve a day on the water.
