Marabou Ranch here in Steamboat Springs was covered by the Denver Post today. This is a rendering of one of the common lodge buildings along the Elk River. One of the many amenities at Marabou Ranch is the fly-fishing. They have done some incredible restoration of the trout habitat along an already good 2 mile stretch of the Elk river that flows through Marabou. This includes using limestone boulders since they produce stronger fly hatches to grow bigger and heathlier trout. They are building 15 acres of ponds and several improved streams utilizing their water rights to provide a great fishing experience even during the spring run-off when the Elk river itself gets blown out by the snow melt.
