Overview

This property contains 1 mile of winding Michigan Creek in a beautiful open field home to a herd of Highland cattle. Camping is permitted here. Unzip your tent to the beautiful views of the South Park mountains and rolling hills. The fish are spooky but anglers can expect to net plenty of brown trout ranging from 10-14″. The creek is easily accessible with limited willows along the banks of the creek. This property is great for beginners and anglers with mobility issues.

Please allow up to 2 business days for booking confirmations.

Due to livestock and other concerns, dogs and other pets are NOT permitted on this property.

    Recently I spent two days on this property for a total of 11 hours. It was one of the most pristine fishing environments I’ve been to. Access was easy and half a day would be enough to cover the entire stretch of the stream. The first day was a bit rough because of high winds and showers (the property has absolutely zero cover for the weather) but the second day was calm and beautiful. Altogether I got 4-5 fish on the hook but could net only two. It was a bit early in the season but there was mid-day surface action; 10-12 inch brown trout hit both green hoppers and parachute Adams. The ground was covered by beautiful mountain flowers as well as innumerable piles of (mostly dry) cow dung — an interesting juxtaposition!

    I fished this property a few weeks ago- nice spot-water was fast and pretty dirty-still managed to net a few 10″ browns.
    Easy to find, very easy access to water.
    Would be best early fall with hoppers.

    Nice stream. Caught 12 or so trout in about 5 hours. All of them were browns in the 10-12 inch range with 2 at about 14-15inches. All fish hit small hoppers (green body). Fish were in good form and most hit the hoppers hard. Cattle are friendly but very inquisitive!
