Convenient easy access from Interstate-25 (I-25), close to an hour from these front range cities and states, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Fort Collins, Denver, Littleton, Thornton, Arvada, Golden, Greeley, Longmont, Boulder, Loveland, Cheyenne, and Laramie.

Rocky Ridge Fishing Club is located on a 300-acre, private reservoir, five miles north of Fort Collins, Colorado. Rocky Ridge reservoir maintains a locked entrance and is in a secluded and picturesque setting surrounded by abundant wildlife. Guided and unguided fishing trips are available at our private fishing club. The club is open to the public by reservation only.

We have had a successful stocking program since 1990. The lake has a healthy population of walleye, Donaldson Steelhead Trout, Kamloop Rainbow and perch. We also have caught some catfish, crappie, and small mouth bass. The lake has a healthy food source and the water level generally remains high throughout the season. The fishing season runs from April 1 through the end of September. A concrete boat ramp and plenty of parking are available. Currently we are accepting a maximum of 35 members per fishing season, and all memberships will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“I have enjoyed coming out to Rocky Ridge lake immensely. Just the wild life viewing and seclusion of the area is enough for me to relax and enjoy the time to myself or with my friends. Catching Walleye and Steelhead Trout is icing on the cake. Thank you for helping create such a great outdoor recreational experience.”

Mike, I caught this nice 23.5 inch steelhead it fought for about 20 minutes, I don’t have the exact date, but your man on the lake was putting the buoy’s in for the waterskiing course. Talk to you soon and thanks again for the membership.                                                                                                                                                                 –Sean Gregory
