Trophy Brook Trout
Gore Range, CO (10,000ft)
The fly fishing at Sheep Horn Ranch is a unique experience for anglers looking for solitude and altitude. Getting to the upper lake takes some time (and a four-wheel drive truck) but efforts are rewarded. Ravenous rainbows, cutbows, and cutthroat will devour a well presented fly but the real prize are the larger than average brook trout. With plentiful forage and ideal spawning conditions, the lake has produced some of the largest brook trout in the state – some even reaching 20″ in length! Dry fly fishing is typically fantastic, but streamer anglers will probably hook the biggest fish as the brook trout dine on minnows most of the summer.
