Fish from or walk for the pure joy of it the grassy banks of eight miles of pristine and private waters on our stretch of the Williamson River. The only sounds are Sand Hill Cranes calling in the meadows, the cries of Canada geese flapping low overhead, and the coyote yelping to his friends in the nearby timber. And, music to the fisherman’s ear, the splash of greedy trout taking Black Drakes in June, the unbelievable frenzy of a hex hatch in July, Hoppers in August, and the Mahogany Dunn in September/October
The Williamson River is fed by six springs, five of which are located on the ranch, producing 45 cubic feet per second year round. The springs stay a consistent 42 degrees and are not affected by snow melt or summer heat. The deep pools and undercut banks created by this slow meandering stream, along with fallen trees, rocks and weeds offer incredible habitat for monster rainbow and brook trout.
The river ecosystem lends itself to fine dry fly fishing and excellent nymph fishing. Our main hatches are the Black Drake in June, the Hexagenia in July, and the hoppers in August. September and October bring the Mahogany Dunn, Fall Caddis and October Caddis.Throughout the year there are prolific hatches of mayflies, caddis, and terrestrials.
The late season sportsman can experience the brilliant colors of spawning brook trout in the morning and then hunt waterfowl on the same water that evening.
The Williamson is suitable for wade/walk fishing and for the beginner and intermediate level fly fisherman and yet challenging enough for even the most experienced. We have guiding available and professional instruction at all levels. For the non fisherman you can walk the banks of the river, canoe the lake, or relax on the porch with a good book, while hundreds of birds fly through the valley.
