Rainbow Falls Mountain Trout
Rainbow Falls is a private fly fishing club with a multi-year waiting list for membership. It is also Colorado’s oldest trout hatchery with nine continually stocked lakes and nearly one mile of stream. What separates Rainbow Falls from other areas is the Big Spring, which produces a constant 51 degrees flow of water, channeled through Trout Raceways, raising over 10,000 new trout year-round. This runs into Spring Lake which never freezes, then two more lakes, joining the Trout Creek lakes downstream. The unique combination of Trout Creek and the Natural Spring provide all of Rainbow Falls lakes and stream with constant water flow the year round and catch and release is practiced on all lakes and streams.
Your Retreat Hosts & Fly Fishing Instructors
