About North Fork Meadows
This section of water is broken up into two pieces, the upper and the lower. Together, they provide the angler with opportunities to fish riffles, runs, shelves, pools, and pocket water. The fish are extremely healthy and, at the right time of the year, readily taking nymphs, dries, and streamers.
Predominantly, the banks are free from trees and other obstructions making it easy to keep your fies out of the bushes. In the summer, the grassy meadows are streaked with brightly colored wild flowers. The mountains reach up high all around you, adding the perfect back drop any time of year. This property is owned by the Mile High Angler, where lunch is served gourmet, out of the cold, all year long.
