Catch Your Biggest Fish

Looking to step up your fly fishing game? C Lazy U dude ranch has been recognized by Orvis as one of the top quality fly fishing lodges in North America, and is one of only five locations in Colorado to receive such a distinction. We offer guided fishing both on-ranch on our private section of Willow Creek as well as off-ranch on the Colorado and Fraser rivers. In addition to knowing the land and waters, our guides live and breathe fishing, ensuring the best experiences – and catches – for our guests.

Some say the best part of the ranch is the activities, or the cozy lodges, or the food, or the dedicated staff – but none of those statements paints a complete picture. For over 100 years, C Lazy U dude ranch and resort has been keeping the traditions of the American West alive, preserving the past so that we can share our culture and history with future generations and people from all over the world.

Our pursuit of quality has made us one of the most awarded ranch vacation destinations in the world, and we’re sure that the West has something to offer you, too.
