About Troublesome Creek

Troublesome Creek is a tributary of the Colorado River that enters the Colorado between Parshal and Kremmling. It is a small stream that had stream improvement done on it over 20 years ago, creating a diverse, natural looking stream with riffles, runs, deep holes and undercut banks meandering through rich hay meadows and willow lined banks.

It has three sections (beats) that are each over a mile in length. When you fish these private waters your group will be the only anglers on the property. Parts of the river are very challenging and require accurate casting under overhanging branches while other parts are open and easier to fish. In a days fishing you have the opportunity to catch fish on dry flies, nymphs and streamers. Hatches include Caddis, Blue Wing Olives, PMD’s, Stoneflies and Midges. Hopper fishing from mid to late summer can be off the charts!!

Trout species include Brown Trout, Rainbows, Cuttbows and Brook trout averaging between 14 and 20 inches. Larger fish up to 10 pounds have been hooked, especially when streamer fishing and can be a real challenge for anglers.

A day on Troublesome Creek is limited to three anglers so you can have the best experience possible. There is an additional private water fee for this property.
