While this lease is shorter in length than our other Tarryall Creek properties, it has the most complex habitat and greatest fish holding capacity of any lease. The upper half (near Ute Creek) is characterized by fast riffles that feed deep canyon pools. Here, boulders, overhanging branches and a steeper gradient make wading and casting more difficult, but offers great pocket water fishing in the riffles. An impressive population of fish (mostly wild browns) in the 8 to 15 inch range are distributed throughout the property, with even larger fish in the deeper pools. Several anglers have released 18-25 inch browns and rainbows on this property. The stream should be worked very thoroughly, as it isn't always obvious where the fish are holding. Ideal for one person but suitable for two anglers who are willing to leap frog upstream.
