This mile of the North Fork of the Big Thompson is a spritely-moving 10- to 15- foot wide stream that runs among a mix of alders, pines and meadows on the Mountain Home Ranch. Rocky pools and runs provide excellent trout habitat for a population of wild browns and rainbows averaging 7 to 14 inches. A 2-acre pond also affords excellent fishing for larger rainbows and browns up to 22 inches.
The ranch, owned by the Chenoweth family, is located in the shadow of Rocky Mountain National Park near Drake (Hwy. 34-Big Thompson Canyon). At Drake you take CR 43 approximately 2 miles to the RMAC gate.
