Your stay at Harmels will be nothing short of adventure. From fly fishing to enjoying a night under the stars at our bonfire pit, the opportunities for adventure are endless. Kids can play on the brand new playground located next to the waterfront cabins. We have a stocked pond located in our pasture area that is plentiful with smaller rainbow trout where you can use bait and keep what you catch; perfect for the smaller kiddos that shouldn’t be out in the river. Harmels boasts a nice recreation room with chess, checkers, billiards, foosball and ping pong in the main office. We also have horseshoes and volleyball available for fun for the whole family!
You have just found one of the best cold water fisheries in the state of Colorado! Our 3/4 of a mile of waters including the Taylor River and tributaries has been said to be “twice the fishing at half the price” of the Frying Pan near Aspen. No guides required. Our fee to fish per person is $125/day or FREE if you are a guest of Harmels. Come to enjoy our beautiful scenery and the abundant trout; stay to enjoy our comfortable accommodations, great food and friendly staff.
At Harmels there is a mount to suit everyone from children seven years old to the most experienced rider. Beginner, intermediate and advanced trail rides leave Harmels three times per day – every day. From hay rides, riding lessons to wilderness rides, Harmels has it all! Every trail ride is through the magnificent and rugged Taylor Canyon and into the Fossil Ridge Wilderness area on some of the same trails used over one hundred years ago by the original pioneers and of course the local wildlife. **To book your ride, please call Bode directly at (970) 901-5710**
The Taylor River trips offer something for every member of your group or family, from mild to wild. This is a scenic narrow river that meanders through the Taylor Canyon. You travel through areas where the canyon walls rise straight up from the river banks and often there are bighorn sheep sightings along the river. If you are lucky, you may even see elk, deer or an occasional black bear.
