With 11 miles of the North Fork of Cottonwood Creek winding through the valley floor in the shadows of the Wyoming range coupled with 2 fish ponds, quality fishing opportunities abound. The North Fork of the Cottonwood is a freestone waterway with a gradient flow varying from meandering pools and deep runs to riffles. The willow-lined banks and protective undercut banks provide excellent habitat for the Colorado River Cutthroat trout. Current ownership has completely restored over 4 miles of the creek utilizing one of the premier hydrologists in the western U.S. The new owner of the ranch will have the opportunity to complete this restoration project and create a great deal of value in the process.


While fishing is the main attraction on the ranch, there are several species of big and small game on the property including Shiras moose, elk, mule deer, and pronghorn. The Ryegrass Ranch is also located amidst a major migration corridor for several thousand elk, mule deer, and pronghorns as they move between summer and winter range. Also, the sage-covered hillsides and sub-irrigated native grass meadows support excellent numbers of sage grouse.

Ranch Operations

Currently, the grazing rights have been leased to a neighboring rancher which provides the ranch a reliable income with minimal efforts. Several miles of wildlife-friendly fences have recently been built to allow protection of the riparian corridor along the creek and wetlands and provide easy rotation of cattle. Over 13 C.F.S. of water rights provide ample water to irrigate several hundred acres of grass meadows providing hay or additional forage for livestock and wildlife.
