Rainbow Trout Ranch has Fishing Ponds and Campground sites southwest of Denver off Highway 285 in the Mountains south of Conifer, Colorado.

NO FISHING LICENSE REQUIRED! This is the perfect place to introduce kids to the sport of fishing. For experienced anglers and seniors, it is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while relaxing at a picnic table and easily catching dinner.

We begin each season by stocking 1,000 pounds of 12 to 14 inch fish. We re-stock every two weeks, keeping between 700 to 900 pounds of fish throughout the season.

FISHING RODS: We have 'American Explorer' fishing rods and reels for sale.

Upon special request and when time allows, we will bone and fillet your fish. Tipping is expected for the extra time this service requires.

THE CAMPGROUND WILL OPEN IN 2016: Campsites will follow the shoreline of Elk Creek just west of the Trophy Fish Pond. RV sites with electric will be available, along with WI-FI.

LOCATION: At Shaffer's Crossing (Elk Creek Road). Just off US Highway 285 in Pine, Colorado. The turn is about 4-1/2 miles south of Conifer. 32234 Fish Pond Way, Pine CO 80470.
