We are located one hour NW of Mt. Shasta off Highway 3 a short drive SE of Etna, California. Traveling anglers often fish the Ranch in a trip that might include the nearby Upper Sacramento River and flyfishing waters such as Fall River, Hat Creek, Pit River, McCloud River, Baum Lake, Lewiston Lake, Trinity River and others.
Sugar Creek Ranch has EIGHT LAKES up to 5 acres in size nestled in 150 acres of the Ranch. There are over two miles of fishable shoreline. Float tubing is permitted on the larger waters. The catch-and-release fly fishing is open year-round. A California fishing license is NOT required when fishing Sugar Creek Ranch waters.
Anglers are limited for your enjoyment, no crowds here! The Ranch is available for day fishing access, or you may take advantage of our modern, spacious and comfortable LODGE.
The Ranch has been operated as a trophy trout catch-and-release flyfishing destination since 1993. Our sexually mature trout have spawned successfully every fall, and the huge wild rainbows and cool gin-clear water provide an incomparable stillwater flyfishing experience.
