We are proud and honored to be working with this exceptional Outfitter with access to over 17 miles of World Class trout fishing located in the heart of Colorado.
The less than famous White River is located just outside of Meeker, CO, and offers some of the best fishing in the west…so don’t tell anyone! This Outfitter and Lodge boosts 17.5 miles of completely private river access for you and your friends to enjoy. With a newly constructed lodge (finished in 2018) located just 400 yards from the bank of the White River you will have access to as much fishing as you can handle! While this Outfitter and Guide service has been in operation for quite some time, it is only recently that they have opened this section of river to the angler looking for the truly private fishing experience. This trip is perfect of the fly fishing groups looking for exceptional waters to explore. It also the perfect trip for a guy/gal trip or a family get-away. The Ranch and River will be all yours!
Your trip will include:
The Lodge were recently constructed 2018, and is located only a few hundred yards from the White River. The newly constructed lodge and guest cabins sleep 11 comfortably with 5 Anglers in the lodge, and the 3 Guest Cabins that are double occupancy. You will find the lodge and guest cabins to be very comfortable with a warm rustic feel to them. Breakfast and dinner are served in the main lodge. All meals are hearty – home cooked, and prepared with love. Lunch can be either at the lodge or a filling riverside lunch can be prepared for those hitting the river all day. The lodge is perfect for family trips, small groups, and corporate getaways.
This is an amazing tailwater fishery that has some of the best wild brown trout fishing in western U.S. in addition to producing hard fighting rainbows and cutthroat. 18” – 20”+/- is common! Early Spring provides epic streamer fishing, with line snapping takes, and great hopper fishing in the heat of the summer.
Casey Herrod and his team at Double H Outfitters are the only commercial operation allowed to guide on this completely private section of the White River, which means that when you fish with them, you have the entire river all to yourself. The focus on the Double H Ranch is conservation and they take it seriously. They limit the amount of people, and they pay close attention to flows, water temps, and other factors that can affect the native species of trout that inhabit these waters. Because this is such a prolific fishery, Casey and his team are currently working with Trouts Unlimited to continue to improve the river and the habitat so these fish can continue to thrive.
