Part One - FlyFishing The Best Fly Fishing in Summit County with Jackson Streit of Mountain Angler

Private Ranch Fly Fishing is Awesome

“One of our ranches, the Middle Fork near Fairplay, Colorado, is a premier property. Consisting of over 3,000 acres and 5 miles of river, this pristine setting is the home of wild Browns, Rainbows, Cutthroats and Brook Trout.

See that gate. That means "keep out," except to Key To The Rockies friend and renowned fisherman, Jackson Streit, owner of Mountain Angler. Don’t think the fish don’t know either. They do. They congregate in the waters that are least fished. Jackson tells us that in many cases, his visitor’s party will be the only ones on the property. And if visitors are seeking gnarly, this is it in fishing. Private ranch fly fishing is da bomb. And only The Mountain Angler has secured rights to numerous private accesses throughout the area.

“One of our ranches, the Middle Fork near Fairplay, Colorado, is a premier property. Consisting of over 3,000 acres and 5 miles of river, this pristine setting is the home of wild Browns, Rainbows, Cutthroats and Brook Trout. This grand slam is not uncommon for Mountain Angler clients. In the late summer there is a spawning run of Browns up to 7 pounds. This is an easy wading stream, good for all levels of fishermen. It is the home water for the Middle Fork Flyfishing School held each summer, and is exclusive to the Mountain Angler’s guide service. Consistent dry fly fishing June-October, “ said Jackson whose enthusiasm for fishing in these waters is over the top.
