Rock Creek Ranch is an exceptional opportunity to own a true fishing property on the Colorado River without any of the challenges that can accompany owning larger acreage parcels. The freestone cobble river bed on this property provides superior aquatic habitat for Mayflies, Stoneflies, Caddisflies, True Flies and Aquatic Beetles. This section of river rarely freezes entirely and often allows for fishing 12 months of the year. The property grants year-round access, is 10 minutes from Kremmling Colorado, and only 2 hours from Denver, Colorado.
Wildlife and Recreation
While fishing the Gold Medal Waters of the Colorado River all year-round is one of the main allures of this property, simply owning such a large, private stretch of the river is remarkable; rarely does a property come on market in the upper Colorado River Basin allowing new ownership of a piece of the Colorado River. The section of river running through this property has been designated as Gold Medal Waters by Colorado Parks & Wildlife.
“Gold Medal Waters are the highest quality cold-water habitats and have the capability to produce many quality-size (14 inches or longer) trout. Gold Medal Waters are defined as any river or lake which is producing a standing stock of at least 60 pounds per acre, and at least 12 trout that are 14 inches or longer per acre on a sustained basis.”
