This is a very rare opportunity to own 5 acres with over 700 feet of private Animas River frontage on some of the best Gold Medal Water fly-fishing sections in Colorado. There is a trail just off the building site that leads you down to the river where you can enjoy fly-fishing on some of the most sought after angling waters in the region. The Animas River is home to large rainbow and brown trout with fish ranging between 10-to-15-inchs. If you are lucky, you might even be able to beat the state-record for brown trout weighing over 20 pounds. This lot has easy access, underground utilities, installed water well and a flat building site that takes advantage of the spectacular views. And, it is located less than 15 minutes from historic downtown Durango.
Drew “Corky” Corcorran has been a professional fly-fishing guide in southwest Colorado for over 22 years, and says this stretch of private river frontage has two of the top five holes on the entire Animas River.
