The reservoir is extremely popular. Anglers fish here searching for rainbows, browns, and pike. This is the place to use terrestrials, tricots, PMDs, caddis, and midges, and BWOs. At the inlet from Terry all Creek are some pools and riffles to apply flies and lures.


Scenic Tarryall Creek Valley is a photographer’s delight. Miners named the Tarryall region in 1959 when pea-sized gold nuggets were discovered along the creek. The March run off leads anglers towards prime-time Rocky Mountain fishing between July and September when fishers wade and float into easy dry fly fishing, often wearing only shorts and t-shirts. Then comes streamer season in the fall, October and November, when big brown trout can be lured with big flies.

Crossbones Ranch is an easy commute to Denver (90 minutes) and Colorado Springs (60 minutes). Only four miles away the small town of Tarryall. What a perfect location for a dream home or corporate retreat, a small recreational ranch and trophy fishing property! Other small ranches dot the valley.
