Sanford Creek offers a great balance between challenging fishing and fun fishing for intermediate anglers. Casting room becomes problematic at Sanford Creek as brush and shrubbery line the banks and pack the stream in tight. Anglers should leave the heavy trout fishing gear at home as these trout are small, wild, very beautiful and often worth the effort. Sanford Creek holds some of the most colorful trout in Colorado during spawning season for Brown and Brook Trout. Whether you explore a big reach of the creek or simply “creek-hop” your way around this area, Sanford Creek has some beautiful trout well worth the stop.
