The Perfect Drift Fly Fishing Club Fisheries Enhancement

Fisheries enhancement construction Fisheries Enhancement Example Large brown trout caught

ERC was contracted to complete a design-build fisheries enhancement project on a one mile private reach of the North Fork of the South Platte River located in Pine, Colorado. The Perfect Drift Fly Fishing Club combines the natural and unspoiled challenges of Rocky Mountain fly fishing with the classic comforts of a private membership.

Project Highlights:

  • Design, hydrologic modeling and construction implementation
  • Re-established appropriate width-depth ratio for current flow condition, very high summer flows and extremely low winter flows due to the Roberts Tunnel Diversion
  • Enhanced the river by creating quality trout habitat for year-round angling, creating habitat variety including large boulder pocket water, sweeping runs, big glassy slow water, shallow riffles and over-wintering pools
  • Completed in a manner that is natural in appearance and function to compliment the natural setting and provide a range of experiences that is both rewarding to the novice fly fisher and challenging to expert anglers
