“ I have done a lot of fishing up and down the East Coast, The Bahamas's, Aruba, and many other places, and I have to say, hands down, this trip was the absolute best. Your staff is by far your greatest asset and not with fake customer service! Your guides were awesome and made great “fishing buddies” while putting us onto loads of fish. You made us feel at home . . . riding around in the pickup after a "sweet" day fishing. The fly shop and all those employees are a first class establishment that met the needs and wants of this awestruck angler. Your ranch is absolutely beautiful and cannot be described with words or showing pictures. It is a “bliss” that has to be experienced in person. This is a trip that will never be forgotten.”
Your friend and customer for life, G.W. Hall
Fly Fishing in solitude. That's the attraction. To find water reflecting light in a setting where you hear only its soothing gurgle and the hum of your line arcing by your ear. The perfect lie, the perfect presentation, the perfect take; the perfect moment.
These are the moments that make the Buffalo Creek Ranch Experience. Professional guides who know our waters are here to help you discover the truth behind the statement made by, Terry Wickstrom, television host of Mountain States Fishing, “a diversity of trout fishing that allows you to have any type of experience you might desire and the quality of people to ensure a great time.” The ranch alone boasts several miles of Buffalo Creek (just 200 yards from the lodge), and five lakes, with the 45 acre Buffalo Lake a short 400 yards from the lodge.
While the Buffalo Creek Ranch, our home ranch, offers spectacular angling opportunities in and of itself, our guests enjoy access to the other ranches and properties that we own and manage: The Illinois River Ranch, The Headwaters Ranch, and Meadow Creek Reservoir. These properties offer-up an additional 15 miles of private, carefully managed streams and an additional two lakes—the largest topping out at over 250 acres! Our waters present the opportunity to catch the coveted Rocky Mountain Grand Slam (to catch 4 species of trout, Brook, Brown, Rainbow, and Cutthroat), a worthy goal for any visitor.
We take our fishing seriously, that's why we operate the areas only full service fly shop, North Park Anglers, keeping our fingers on the pulse of North Park's meadow streams, freestone rivers, and prolific lakes. Let's face it; weather, water, fishing conditions, and even personal preference, requires diverse fishing opportunities. To meet these needs we also lease other private waters throughout the area, and have permits to guide some of the best kept secrets on public water. For the ultimate river experience, allow us to float you through designated wilderness on the blue ribbon waters of the North Platte River. Not much has changed along these banks since 1844 when Captain John C. Freemont explored his way up river to discover the wilds of her origin, North Park.
