Horseshoe Bar Fish and Game Preserve is located near Foresthill, California on the Middle Fork of the American River just below Oxbow/Ralston Dam. Just one hour from Sacramento or two hours from the Bay Area, Horseshoe Bar offers true wilderness fly-fishing in this thousands of acres preserve in the American River Canyon Watershed.
Membership: Horseshoe Bar Preserve has a limited membership that promotes a true wilderness fly fishing experience, as well as the camaraderie of a close knit group of members. Members are eager to help one another improve their skills and knowledge of the river. We offer a number of events and seminars throughout the year to help you fine tune your fly fishing skills, as well as social events where members can become acquainted and share experiences. After a long day of angling, you can return to the campground overlooking one of the most beautiful and productive sections of the river to share your experience with fellow members. After cooking up your favorite foods in the outdoor kitchen you can sit around the campfire and enjoy the pristine beauty and tranquility that is Horseshoe Bar Preserve.
We have a limited membership of fly fishers who enjoy this pristine, gated preserve. Our mission is to preserve this property in its natural state for the enjoyment of our members and guests.
We are now in the process of accepting applications. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in joining
