Nestled in Colorado's Flat Tops Wilderness Area near the small town of Meeker lies a working ranch of over 20,000 acres, owned by the Wheeler family for three generations. This is home to Elk Creek Lodge - one of America's finest sporting properties. Come experience what many anglers say is the best trout fishing in the West, complimented by unparalled accommodations, world class cuisine, and an attentive staff eager to cater to your every need.
Opened in 1988, Elk Creek Lodge has emerged as a premier fly fishing ranch through the efforts of owner Bill Wheeler and his expert management team. It caters to only 18 anglers each week who seek a destination for an outstanding fishing and outdoor experience, with an emphasis on comfort and service. Our guests fish privately owned or leased water throughout the valley that consistently produces exceptional angling. All four native species of trout can be caught at Elk Creek, providing the "Colorado Grand Slam." Through the years, extensive stream management, combined with a strict catch-and-release policy, have created an amazing fishery that is an experience not to be missed by both novice and seasoned anglers.
