Hiking Fishing North Fork White River, Colorado, USA 

The White River is one of the top streams in the state of Colorado but for some reason, it gets little attention. Fly fishing the White River provides as much opportunity as any stream in the state of Colorado. This beautiful freestone stream starts out from its North and South Forks.

The North Fork flows into and out of Trappers Lake. Near Buford it joins the South Fork to form the White River. The river flows for miles through ranch land and finally through the little town of Meeker where the Mule Deer and Elk season is the highlight of the year. Since the White River is several miles from any major highways, it sees few people.

The river flows through hundreds of long riffles, runs and pools that are rarely fished. Several areas of public access provide an opportunity for anglers to catch large rainbow and brown trout. Numerous small, tributary streams have smaller wild trout that add to the diversity.

The headwaters have ample access with plenty of smaller cutthroat and brook trout. Although brown and rainbow trout exist in the headwaters, the larger trout are in the larger, lower end of the river.
