Bardin Ranch

DETAILS

This private water stretch is bordered by the Ute Reservation and other private properties, so even fish that leave and enter the boundary remain unpressured.

Rainbow trout are most often found in this segment of freestone river, but the occasional brown finds their way in. These fish populations are supported by an abundance of insect life. Streamers can be just as productive depending on time of day and year. Blue Wing Olives, Golden Stones and Mayflies are the big hatches here.

At the Bardin Ranch, the water is full of great habitat and holding water. From top to bottom, the mighty Animas cascades through riffles, holes, runs, and a few well built man made features. Three generations of Bardins live on this beautiful oasis and they are thrilled to share the world class angling with our guests.
