One mile of Tarryall Creek at 8,600 feet elevation. Optimal stream flows range from 30 cfs to 80 cfs but fishing can be good up to 120 cfs if the water is clear.

Morning fishing is often best on clear summer days because water temperatures get very warm by early afternoon.


$60.00 per angler; maximum of 3 anglers per day. No refunds once payments are made.

Check-in Procedure:

You will be prompted to download your angling pass (with the gate combination) from our website when you submit your reservation online. Be sure to print out the pass or save the PDF to your smart phone.

Proceed DIRECTLY to Allen Creek Ranch on the day of your reservation and look for the "Allen Creek Ranch" sign on the gate. Place your pre-printed angling pass on the dashboard of your car or carry your smart phone with the PDF because you may be checked. Please call 719.836.4177 if you have any questions.

Allen Creek Ranch is 24 miles from the town of Jefferson and 18 miles from Lake George on County Road 77 (Tarryall Road). This property is patrolled and all vehicles without a valid angling pass are reported immediately to the Park County Sheriff.


Allen Creek Ranch is a scenic property with complex habitat and healthy populations of trout in the 10 to 25 inch range. This one-mile section of Tarryall Creek has a steeper gradient than many properties in the valley, with boulder-strewn riffles and runs, interspersed with large pools. Extensive channel restoration work in 2005 further increased the fish holding capacity over much of this property. Every pocket and run should be worked thoroughly, as feeding browns and rainbows often hold in unexpected places.


Lightning is a real hazard and no shelter or restrooms exist on the property. Fast riffles, slick rocks and deep pools can be dangerous, especially during periods of high water. Sloughs and beaver slides (some quite deep) may exist anywhere the channel has been dammed by beavers. Livestock range freely on this property during summer.


There are no sanitary facilities on this property. The nearest public restrooms are located at Twin Eagles Trailhead (downstream) on County Road 77. Other services are available in Lake George. Please plan accordingly on the day of your arrival.


Allen Creek Ranch is located 24 miles southeast of Jefferson and 18 miles northwest of Lake George on County Road 77 (Tarryall Road). The ranch gate is near Milepost 24, about 6.5 miles below Tarryall Reservoir. Call (719) 836-4177 for directions or more information.
