Sold! Yampa TailWaters Preserve: Legacy Fishing Retreat

January 25th, 2012

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. » More: Sold!

9th Annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Celebrity Classic/Redbone Tournament

October 18th, 2011

Denver-based Live Water Properties broker, Brian Hartley and guest, Mark Lucas took to the cool waters of the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers last month to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections. The 9th Annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Celebrity Classic/Redbone Tournament was a rousing success as 14 teams raised over $71,000 to help fund further research and raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis via a 2-man tag team attack on the fiery trout of the scenic Roaring Fork Valley watershed. » More: 9th Annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Celebrity Classic/Redbone Tournament
