Sold! Yampa TailWaters Preserve: Legacy Fishing Retreat

January 25, 2012 by Haley Leave a reply »

Congratulations to Alex Maher, Brian Hartley and Ben Pierce for the closing of this Colorado ranch! Yampa TailWaters Preserve is a legacy fishing retreat offering arguably, the single best, private tailwater fishery in North America given its year-round fishing season. Large rainbow and brown trout migrate up 128 miles of the undammed Yampa River to spawn and reside in this first mile and three quarters of tailwaters below Catamount Dam. The 514-acre ranch is ideally situated in the heart of the amenity-rich splendor of the famed resort valley of Steamboat Springs. With nutrient rich water teeming with trophy trout, this rare offering combines one of the premier fisheries in the country with quiet, peaceful seclusion as well as exceptional accessibility. Yampa TailWaters Preserve boasts approximately a mile and three quarters of both sides of the Yampa River with completely private wild trout fishing that is consistently good in fall, winter, spring and summer. The river enters the property just below Catamount Dam, and is full of exceptional food resources for the multitudes of aggressive, primarily wild trout. The challenge of this truly outstanding fishery is not tricking the trout to eat your fly, but managing to land these exquisite species as they can put on red-hot runs upstream. Fish from 25”-30” are not uncommon. Not only a unique offering because of the miles of private world-class Yampa River fishing onsite, the ranch represents an opportunity to preserve and enhance one the largest contiguous parcels of undeveloped land in the Yampa Valley. From the lush hay meadows, breathtaking sunsets, bugling elk, Sandhill cranes, to dramatic cliffs and massive insect hatches, the Preserve offers a multi-generation, legacy ranch investment located ten minutes from downtown Steamboat and the gondola in “Ski Town USA.” Offering price was $21,900,000.
