Fishing at the Piney Lake
Piney Lake is a longtime Colorado favorite destination for lake fishing. Nestled at the base of the remote and rugged Gore Range and surrounded by the Eagle’s Nest wilderness, Piney Lake is the trout-laden gem of Eagle County.
Piney River Ranch anglers can chase almost every species of trout found in Colorado (Brookies, Browns, Cutthroat, and Rainbow trout), in almost every way imaginable. Knowledgeable, professional staff will facilitate activities, from shore fishing to canoes and stand-up paddle boards.
They do not rent fishing poles or any type of fishing equipment. Guests are more than welcome to bring their own equipment.
Please note: Fishing Licenses are required as this is a private lake.
Along the trail, you’ll enjoy views of the surrounding mountain peaks, the pristine Piney River, wildflower meadows, and fields of beautifully forested Aspen trees. You may also catch a glimpse of our wildlife, including moose, elk, and deer. For more in for, please visit https://www.colorado.com/equestrian-centerstable/piney-river-ranch
ONE or TWO HOUR HORSEBACK RIDE
The two-hour ride is a very relaxing and exciting experience as you make your way through the Piney River Valley, taking in the fantastic views along the trail. Rides, scheduled throughout the day, by demand, depart from and conclude at the ranch.
If your time is limited, the one-hour ride offers you a similar experience lasting half as long. You will still be able to enjoy the beauty of the Piney River area while not impacting the rest of your itinerary.
The rides are scheduled daily at 10am and 2pm. Please note we only have one wrangler so if a group has pre-booked the 1 hour ride at a particular time, then that is the ride that will be available.
