World Class Trout Fishing at Your Doorstep
World class fishing abounds at numerous alpine lakes and along the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River that runs through Vickers Ranch!
Half-mile stretches – both upstream and downstream – on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison Riverriver offer excellent fly fishing without leaving the ranch. Three large ponds are kept stocked on the lower ranch providing easy access to fun fishing for kids of all ages within a short walk from any guest cabin. A riverside fish cleaning station is also available so you don't have to make a mess at your cabin.
Rent a Jeep and head a short distance up the hill with your fly rod to numerous secluded lakes for some feisty wild Brook Trout. Bring your lures or worms for lunkers often found in the depths of Gold Hill Lake. Many lakes are also kept stocked with large Rainbows and Cuthroat Trout. No fishing license is required on Vickers Ranch private property. Temporary licenses and plenty of tackle are available in town at the various outfitters for anyone wishing to explore other excellent fishing opportunities around the region.
Take a few steps out the front door of your riverfront cabin to fish a beautiful private stretch of the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River. Easily catch your dinner with the kids in the large fishing ponds, or enjoy some peace and quiet while casting alone on the upper ranch lakes.

Big Game Hunting for Elk and Mule Deer
Looking for some excellent quality Elk and Deer hunting?
Our remote ranch has been in existence since the early 1900s when J.W Vickers first hunted the area to support his homestead. Now, in addition to hunting on our 1,500-acre ranch, we have permitted areas for the surrounding 1,000 acres of public land. This offers excellent hunting, as the habitat is conducive to to large herds of Elk and Mule Deer.
Prime hunting areas on the ranch offer easy access for all ages, abilities, and physically challenged. Private access allows us to go in and out each day without any worry of beating someone else to an area. We offer fully guided rifle season hunts within this prime section of Colorado GMU 66. Our fully guided hunts are 5 days in length and we offer comfortable accomodations for your stay.
