Cutthroat and rainbow trout thrive in this half-mile section of the swiftly-flowing North Fork of the White River above Buford, CO. The north fork originates just a few miles upstream of the Welder Ranch in scenic Trappers Lake and is well known as one of the last bastions of the Colorado River strain of cutthroat trout. It is a classic mountain stream with pocketwater, swift runs and occasional pools. The trout average 10 to 14 inches with larger fish from 18 to 20 inches. The scud-filled 2-acre lake holds hard-fighting browns with some monster rainbows reaching 7 pounds. There is a lovely cabin available as well as a camping spot with electrical hookup.
Located above Buford 1/4 mile before mile marker 29. The ranch is approximately 31 miles from Meeker.
2 anglers/day, more if in one group.
