SDCR Unit U, Block 167,
Lot 2825—This is a rare Sangre de Cristo Creek Lot. Out of all of those
lots we've bought or sold, only 30-some had water features and only five were along Sangre de Cristo Creek. This is the largest
stream in Costilla County and such water properties are always hard to find.
Lot U.2825 is priced at $15,500. This is a great price for your own fishing hole. Most of our
streams are shallow and totally freeze over in the winter time and without deep holes to survive the winter the trout seldom
get larger than 7-9 inches. The headwaters of Sangre de Cristo Creek are at 9500’ in the La Veta
Pass Area and even during droughts, this stream has a good flow rate. We have a native trout called Rio
Grande Cut Throat that occasionally is caught in this creek and it has a pink meat similar to the German Brown Trout.
The owner bought this property from us 7 years ago
and has fallen on hard times and the bank has threatened foreclosure.
