The Middle Fork Ranch is a fly-fishing paradise, a true Gold Medal fishery offering multiple species of trophy trout that’s been managed for years by Mountain Angler fly-fishing guide service out of Breckenridge. Along with mule deer and antelope, elk frequent the property year-round, but as the snow flies, herds come down from the high country offering an excellent opportunity for harvest in the later hunting seasons. Middle Fork Ranch offers more than incredible recreation. It produces excellent high country grazing opportunities with good carrying capacity for the area. The ranch has two sets of improvements and good working facilities. Pastures are cross fenced, and rotational grazing program is in place for the season.

Convenience is a major factor with the Middle Fork Ranch, with Breckenridge to the north over Hoosier Pass. This world-class destination in offers excellent accommodations, skiing and shopping. Fairplay offers all the amenities you need for the ranch and access to downtown Denver and Denver International Airport is just two hours down Highway 285. This rare offering, with world-class fishing, a variety of hunting, high country cattle grazing, and close proximity to Denver and the “Front Range” of Colorado is truly a rare opportunity that comes around once in a lifetime.
