Fishing Oppurtunites


Sweetwater Lake offers prime locations for both fly and lure fishing


Please note that Sweetwater does not sell fishing licenses! A license is required to fish on Sweewater Lake and during all horseback fishing trips, so remember to bring it with you.

Fish on our 60 acre lake!

  • Rent on of our Rowboats or Canoes by the hour, Half Day or for the full day and tempt rainbow trout, brown trout, and kokane salmon.
  • Fly Fish from either of the two docks (As pictured above)
  • Bring your own motorless boat to launch into lake (No gas motors allowed on lake by fedderal regulation, trolling motors only)


Take a ride on a horse to pristine mountain lakes!

  • Full-Day Fishing Trips - Horseback straight to either Hack Lake or Turret Meadows and spend the day catching brook and cutthroat trout. (You must bring your fishing license and all equipment must fit on a horse. We can provide some gear if needed.)
  • Adventure Ride -  Immerse yourself in western tradition; ride horses through the majestic Flat Tops Wilderness and return with the setting sun. Enjoy views of the Maroon Bells, the Sawatch Range and New York Mountains.  Leaves when the cowboy coffee is still steamin' and returns when the dinner bell is ringin'.

Cowboy Brown Bag lunch will be provided.
