Ranch History

In the mid-1900s, Chuck Sanger and his new bride Millie took residence at the French Creek Ranch, where they eventually opened a successful hunting and fishing lodge known to welcome guests from all over the world—from Wall Street “tycoons” to His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.

The Setting

We are positioned at the headwaters of the North Platte River, which is fed by snowmelt from our neighboring Snowy Mountain Range and Sierra Madre Range. There’s a beauty to the North Platte that can’t be found anywhere else. It courses steadfastly through steep pine tree-covered canyons with dramatic rock formations, and anglers across the nation seeking a world-class fishing experience visit it for it’s incredibly healthy ecosystem.


The Fishing

Southern Wyoming has some of the most productive trout fisheries in the world, let alone the United States.This Blue Ribbon freestone fishery and its major tributaries offer float and wade fishing opportunities on some of the healthiest trout ecosystems in the world as it flows through a spectrum of stunning Wyoming landscapes. From steep rocky canyons to flat rolling sagebrush hills, and everything in between, even the most traveled anglers seldom get to experience such variety of landscape and fishing scenario within a small watershed. Prolific insect hatches throughout the year, thousands of trout per river mile—over 20 miles of private water across 30,000 acres of ranch land accessible by foot and boat— make this a destination fishery for any serious angler.

Highs

  • Located on the historic Sanger Ranch, French Creek Sportsmen’s Club offers guests access to the nation’s premier hunting and fishing grounds.
  • You will enjoy the height of all-inclusive ultra-luxury as it is a part of the famous Ultra Ranch, Brush Creek Ranch
  • It's an angler's dream come true! The North Platte River watershed is revered as one of the most iconic fly fishing destinations in North America, as well as the world. Flowing through expansive canyons and sloping valleys, its tributaries, including Brush Creek, French Creek and the Encampment River, offer over 20 miles of pristine, exclusive private water access by way of rafts, drift boats, or wading.
  • Fishing here is always good. With such a variety of fisheries and drastic changes in elevation, you can always find a productive spot somewhere at any given time of the year, if you know where to look. That being said, there are several windows of time throughout the season that can be particularly good on the water.
  • It's the 'home' of trout fishing, with Rainbow and Brown being the most common. Occasionally you'll get lucky and hook Brook or Cutthroat. If you're lucky, you could bring home a 'trophy trout' of over two feet long!

Lows

  • If you're looking to fish for a variety of species, be aware that French Creek only fish for Trout.
