At 1,658+/- total acres, the Upper Tarryall Creek Ranch features approximately 3 miles of the Upper Tarryall Creek fishery. The fly fishing on this kind of creek against the ranch’s backdrop offers anglers an iconic Colorado experience. Large swaths of upland pasture insulate the bottom land on the north and south. To the south is a leased 640-acre section which is currently used for grazing purposes. The fishery is part of the headwaters of the South Platte River which drains an enormous portion of the “front range”- an area east of the continental divide at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Being near the origin of this drainage, the water in Tarryall Creek is clean and cold which supports an incredibly healthy riparian corridor. The diversity and volume of aquatic insects in the fishery is astounding and it greatly benefits the trout that enjoy the creek. Because the riparian corridor is so healthy, a variety of other wild game enjoy this well-watered sanctuary. Elk, Pronghorn Antelope, Mule Deer, Bear and birds of prey enjoy the benefit of the ranch year-round. Bluffs surround the riparian corridor and offer views of both the lush riparian corridor and the numerous snowcapped peaks that define South Park. The bottom offers 360-degree views of Lost Park National Wilderness on the east, the Kenosha Mountains on the north and then a string of icons lying within the Mosquito Mountain range including Mt. Boreas, the ever-prominent Mt. Silverheels at 13,823 feet at one of Colorado’s 58 famous “14ers”, Mount Sherman at 14,042 feet. The views from within South Park Colorado are nearly unmatched in the state and Upper Tarryall Creek Ranch takes advantage of a majority of them. Expand your recreation pursuit here. The ranch can be expanded by over 2.5 miles of creek and 800+/- acres by adding the neighboring ranch- the Frank Collard Ranch which is also offered.
