FISHING / RIVER ACCESS


The club heralds some of the finest private streches of water in the Vail Valley for our members' exclusive use throughout the season and at select times out of season depending on Bald Eagle nesting periods.

Water from the Eagle River is used for all of our golf course irrigation and domestic water needs so we value the importance of being good custodians of this resource. We ask all our members and their guests to do the same.
