North Fork of the Williams Fork, Hayden, CO

Beaver Valley Ranch is a private fishing ranch located in rural Routt County. Objectives of the project were to enhance fishing habitat and angling opportunities along a 1,500 linear foot stretch of the North Fork of the Williams Fork River. ERC’s design created sequences of riffle and bend pools based on the natural alignment of the stream system. Improvements utilized on-site material for channel shaping, instream habitat features and bank stabilization, minimizing the need for import and reducing overall project costs. Work was completed within a two week window to minimize impacts on ranching and impacts to anglers using the site.
