This pristine ranch offers opportunities to fly fish over 3.7 miles of high alpine meadows perfectly suited for both the beginner and experienced angler. The Ranch joins the Carson National Forest and Cruces Basin Wilderness making a front yard of 354,000 acres uninhabited timberland, sitting on top of a high plateau from 8,000 to nearly 11,000 feet in elevation. Open meadows, rich in wild flowers, are interspersed with stands of pine, spruce, fir and aspen. This ranch offers fly fishing enthusiasts access to the best water in the headwaters of the legendary Brazos River. The river is famous for producing record class wild brook trout, rainbows, cuttbows and cutthroat trout.

In Ti Piper's book, Fishing in New Mexico, he says, "...In The Brazos box, above Corkin's Lodge and the Brazos River meadows, in the high country, offers fantastic wild trout fishing all on private land. There are browns, brook trout, rainbows and cutthroats in the headwater creeks. In terms of wild populations of naturally reproducing trout, the upper Brazos nurtures the best trout fishery in the state, all on private land."
