Tom Bartos, Founder, Horseshoe Bar Preserve

Horseshoe Bar Fish and Game Preserve, Inc. was founded on May 1, 2007. As the first year came to a close we realized we had the opportunity to make Horseshoe Bar Fish and Game Preserve, Inc. something special. We wanted members to be able to enjoy the solitude of a wilderness experience that offers great fishing while being respectful conservationists.

We average less than two rods a day on the five miles of river and thousands of acres. Members enjoy seeing one another at club events such as fishing clinics, work parties and philanthropic events. Our annual Wounded Warrior event helps rehabilitate seriously wounded veterans by teaching them how to fly fish. At the end of the day there is something special about fishing and spending the night sitting around a campfire trading fishing stories over a cold beer, glass of single malt or fine wine. Let’s us not forget a great cigar.

Now in our fifth year the fishing has never been better due to a strict catch & release and fish handling policy. A camping area has been created overlooking one of the best fishing spots on the river with bunkhouse cabins and an outdoor kitchen area. Plans are in the works for a restroom and shower facility.
