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 the Historic Williams Ranch lease (downstream), 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.
The lower Tarryall Creek leases are very much off the beaten path. Fortunately the area has some fine lodging options providing anglers with great choices to stay and fish for a few days or more. Lodging is available at the the Ute Trail River Ranch ~ when you're angling for something different ~ (719.748.3015), Tarryall River Ranch (719.748.1214) and Historic Williams Ranch.
