The Ranch water's healthy eco-system has encouraged various trout species to flourish, reach trophy size, and provide a fly fishing experience every angler dreams of. Much of this is made possible through proper fish handling, angler etiquette, sportsmanship, and catch and release fishing. If privacy and serenity are what you're after while landing quality trout on multiple ponds, miles of streams, and exclusive Roaring Fork River access, we'd be delighted to share in your next Colorado mountain fly fishing adventure. Though we cannot guarantee every angler will catch a fish, we can guarantee that there are sure many to catch!
Enjoy 1 mile of river frontage along the Crystal River in Redstone, Colorado located in the picturesque Elk Mountains. Crystal River is one of the last of the “freestone” rivers in Colorado and provides a very natural fishing experience.
The clear and pristine Crystal River flows into the Roaring Fork River. This property is located above Coal Creek (Coal Creek is the prime contributor to the Crystal River being blown out or off-color) so you should find clear and pristine waters at this property. The Crystal River through the property consists of one channel at the top and bottom. With the middle section braiding out. There have been structure improvements throughout the property. Brown and rainbow trout are the most common species of fish, but you could encounter brook trout and cutthroat trout as well. Spring and early summer are the best time for hatches and as the weather warms up you can expect terrestrials such as grasshoppers and beetles to become abundant. The bank closest to Hwy 133 is easily accessible for most if not all waders. The opposite back is steeper and more difficult to access for someone that may not be sure-footed. The river is crossable most times of the year throughout the property. The downstream boundary is clearly designated by the bridge that crosses over the river into RedStone.
The Dean Ranch is located right in the heart of Carbondale. Made up of fishing ponds and premier access to the mouth of the Roarking Fork. Trophy brown and rainbow trout are not uncommon in this hidden gem!
