Situated along one-half mile of the Uncompahgre River, which begins its flow in the nearby San Juan Mountains, life on the ranch is intrinsically a part of the seasonal ebb and flow of the water. Snow-capped boulders in the winter accent the quiet flow only to give way to the spring run off and the soothing summer run.
Deemed a “tail-water river” as it passes through the ranch, it is home to four different species of trout that thrive in its constant movement and quiet pools. Great Blue Herons and other wildlife are supported by this critical water source. Fly-fishing is an avid pastime at Centennial.
