The Upper Green River Estate provides private access to 1 ½+ miles of Green River frontage. This stretch of the river is one of the most productive stretches of trout water on this upper reach of the Green, known as “forest boundary”. The narrower water along this stretch provides anglers both floating and wade fishing opportunities, with some very attractive and productive holding water throughout. From shady grass and willow-covered banks to the traditional riffle-run-pool dynamic, there is no shortage of classic trout water for the resident fish to call home. Healthy populations of rainbows, brown trout with an increasing number of native Colorado River cutthroat trout make this stretch of the Green ideal. Rainbows and browns in the 12”-16” range are routinely netted with opportunities to land trophies exceeding 20”+ on any given day during the fishing season. Thanks to the enhanced efforts in the area to return Colorado River cutthroat to these waters, the results have been an increase in numbers and size of this native trout.
Rock Creek flows from the adjacent national forest onto the Upper Green River Estate’s private access land for approximately 2/3 mile. The Rock Creek and Green River confluence is located on this same property. This smaller healthy stream provides anglers with additional trout water to test their skills on the narrow and tight runs. Larger trout from the Green River will move up and down Rock Creek during various times of year. These fish, in addition to the smaller resident trout on Rock Creek, will provide an angler with plenty of memorable days on the water.
Upper Green River Estate is home to Mule deer, moose, and an occasional elk passing by, as well as waterfowl, coyotes, Red fox, badgers, rabbits, eagles, hawks, osprey, and other small game and songbirds.
