The Home Ranch has about three miles of the Elk River flowing through the property.
The Elk River is a classic rocky mountain freestone river that supports abundant populations of wild rainbow, brown, brook, and cutthroat trout. While the average trout is ten to sixteen inches in length, several rainbows are caught each year that reach twenty inches in length.
The Elk River level changes significantly throughout the season. During spring runoff, the river is almost un-fishable. Depending on snowfall amounts, the river begins to drop around the first of July and continues its descent throughout the rest of the summer. There is also a private pond stocked with rainbow trout just a few yards from the main lodge.
