GHOST RANCH - Combining over 1.5 miles of prime Yampa River with diverse mountainous land, this unique 1,380± deeded acre ranch stands out for its big river trout fishing and big game hunting. Located below the confluence of the Elk and Yampa rivers, the stretch of river on the property is wide and features an abundance of quality fishable water. Prolific aquatic bug and baitfish populations produce hefty browns, rainbows and the occasional northern pike. The fish on this ranch are wild, colorful and surprisingly large. Most big-river trout properties are, by nature, situated in broad downstream valleys, and therefore lack the topographic variety and vegetation of ideal big game habitat. Ghost Ranch is rare in that it also encompasses mountainous land adjacent to the river, with 1,300 feet of elevation change spread over multiple drainages. Diverse vegetation consisting of riparian, grass, sage, mountain oaks, aspen groves, and dark timber results in excellent habitat for resident and migratory populations of elk, mule deer and black bear. An autumn evening on the Ghost Ranch realistically includes landing a 6-pound kype-jawed brown trout, then glassing a bugling 6 x 6 bull elk from the river bank. Modest improvements consist of a caretaker’s house and large shop/hunting lodge. There are a number of excellent potential homesites overlooking the river valley and, without a conservation easement, no restrictions on future uses. The ranch features paved road access with a private bridge over the river and a convenient location less than 20 minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs and 10 minutes from the regional airport in Hayden.
