Rainbow Falls

Doubled up early spring at Rainbow Falls Mountain Trout


Woodland Park, CO (8,465 ft.)

“Nearly anyone you talk with that’s fished it has their own fond memories of Rainbow Falls. As Colorado’s oldest trout hatchery, we have been raising trout and stocking the lakes for over 136 years. With it’s 9 lakes, and nearly 1-mile of stream the possibilities are endless. What separates Rainbow Falls from other areas is the Big Spring, which produces a constant 51 degree flow of water, channeled through our Trout Raceways, raising over 10,000 new trout year-round. This runs into our “Spring Lake” which never freezes, then 2 more lakes, joining our Trout Creek lakes downstream.” –

“Our unique combination of Trout Creek and the Natural Spring provide all of Rainbow Falls lakes and stream with constant water flow the year round. We practice catch and release on all lakes and streams. All our lakes are stocked and provide a wide variety of fishing experiences. Come enjoy fishing at Rainbow- and make your own memories!” – Richard, Owner, Rainbow Falls
