An extraordinary Colorado recreational property in a very special location along the Taylor River in Gunnison County, Parcel Two at Crystal Creek is now offered for sale. The parcel is the last undeveloped lot within the Crystal Creek community.
The parcel’s home site lies on the confluence of the Taylor River and Crystal Creek at the western edge of the subdivision. The home site is forested and features a private gated entrance, seclusion and serenity in a beautiful mountain and river setting.
Beyond the incredible home site location, Crystal Creek owners enjoy exclusive fishing rights on two miles of the freestone Taylor River. The improvements to this stretch of the Taylor resulted in an incredible fish habitat that supports a sustainable and highly productive natural fishery.
Fish commonly caught are rainbows, browns or cutthroat and average around 16 inches with many topping 24 inches. Crystal Creek ranch fishing records document many rainbows in excess of 30 inches.
The Taylor River is home to some of the largest stream-born trout in the lower 48 states. Their large size is attributed to the tailwater from the Taylor Reservoir Dam providing a constant food source throughout the year.
The past three state record catch-and-release rainbow trout have come from the Taylor River. Saavy fishermen can reasonably expect to catch four to eight pound rainbow and brown trout. The potential of attracting 10 and 15 pound trout is within reason and 20 pound fish are possible.
Crystal Creek owners also enjoy access to over 405 acres of common property surrounded by the National Forest including a stunning mix of tributary streams, waterfalls, aspen trees, healthy pines, pristine meadows and prominent rock outcroppings.
A developed creek as well as two native creeks, the Crystal Creek and the Summerville Stream, offer excellent small stream fishing and two stocked ponds provide a great flat water fishing experience.
A full time, on-site manager and his family oversee the ranch and river operations and provide individualized services for each Crystal Creek owner.
