Often overshadowed by the renowned South Fork, the North Fork of the South Platte River still has plenty to offer.

Anglers can expect to find plenty of trout along the river, which is located just one hour from metro Denver and accessible from US 285. The North Fork is great for those who love variety, offering shallow pockets of water in some spots and deep rapid runs in others.

Most of the water along the river is controlled by private operators, including the excellent three-mile stretch of water run by Boxwood Gulch and Long Meadow between Bailey and Grant. But some public waters can be found in Pine Valley Open Space, just south of Pine Junction, and in small portions on the way to Deckers.
