If ever a stream was tailor-made for fly fishing it is Tarryall Creek on the J Diamond B Ranch near Lake George, Colorado. Approximately one mile of the 30-foot wide Tarryall Creek winds through the meadows of the ranch, with a full complement of pools, runs, riffles, and undercut banks. Wild brown trout thrive here, along with a population of larger rainbow trout. The 448 acre property is surrounded with rocky outcrops and open forests of ponderosa pine, creating a highly scenic setting. Although fishing is the chief feature of the ranch, 8 CFS of water rights are available for hay production, and cattle can be grazed in several areas. Pike National Forest surrounds 75% of the property, making it a perfect hiking and hunting headquarters as well. With a fully renovated 5 bedroom ranch house and several outbuildings, the J Diamond B is well outfitted for a weekend or year-round living. Only an hour from Colorado Springs by paved roads makes it an easily accessible fishing retreat with few peers on the Front Range.
