Bass Fishing at Chico Basin Ranch
The Drift is now offering bass fishing trips at Chico Basin Ranch. The ranch is located about 30 minutes NE of Pueblo which makes it ideal for both morning & evening 1/2 day trips. If non-stop action for hard fighting largemouth bass sounds fun then you will not be disappointed. 10 - 14" bass are the backbone of this fishery and they will put a serious bend in any 6 or 7wt rod. The fishing is not technical and is a great option for getting kids and/or spouses into LOTS of fish and the topwater action has been just phenomenal!!
Trips are conducted from a 14" drift boat that accommodates two anglers.
1/2 day rates are $275 for one angler, or $325 for 2 anglers.
Kids under age 12 can be added as the second angler at no additional cost.
