Muddy Creek is a tributary of the Colorado River and provides anglers another great option to pursue both Rainbow and Brown trout in the Colorado River Basin. The creek is split in half by Wolford Reservoir and the most popular section to fish is the tailwater section below the dam. The majority of the river above the reservoir is privately owned. Below the dam, anglers have approximately 5 miles of river to explore. The river sits in a fairly wide open meadow and doesn't provide much protection from the elements. The trout in Muddy Creek grow to respectable sizes and 14"-16" fish are not uncommon. Reports of fish much larger than that below the dam are somewhat frequent as well. Trails offer access upstream and downstream for access to approximately 1.5 miles of Muddy Creek. There is a vault restroom at the parking area.
