Egry Mesa Ranch Colorado: Hidden in the heart of one of Colorado’s last unspoiled mountain valleys, Egry Mesa Ranch is tailor-made for hunting and fishing of exceptional quality. Egry Mesa Ranch lies approximately one hour southwest of Steamboat Springs, nestled against Routt National Forest on the flanks of the Beaver Flat Tops. This Colorado mountain ranch is blessed with a diverse mosaic of aspen and oak brush groves, heavy timber, mountain meadows, riverine woods, springs and lakes, and an elevated irrigated mesa bearing the ranches name.
Egry Mesa Ranch lies in the well-watered East Fork of the Williams Fork Valley, about an hour drive from the ski resort of Steamboat Springs. This Colorado ranch for sale occupies approximately 2,014-acres and ranges in elevation from 7400 to 8800 feet. Private angling opportunities on this Colorado fishing property are second to none. The East Fork of the Williams Fork River, a stream from 20 to 40 feet in width, tumbles and winds through the ranch for approximately two miles, creating excellent natural trout habitat, full of aquatic insects. A very healthy population of rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and cuttbow hybrids provide fast action in the riffles, runs and pools of the East Fork. Many of the trout reproduce naturally, and mature fish grow from 14 to 17 inches, with the largest reaching a net-sagging 20+ inches. Poose Creek, which is chalked full of native cutthroat trout winds through the ranch for another three miles. For a change of pace, anglers could develop stillwater trout fishing in one of the larger ranch ponds. In addition, several adjudicated springs are candidates for further pond development, and 180 acres of hay meadow is irrigated by 3 cfs of water rights. In short, Egry Mesa Ranch is an angling destination that most of us only dream about!
Hunting opportunities on the ranch include elk, mule deer and black bear. Big game habitat is excellent, and the abundant water on the ranch makes Egry Mesa Ranch a big game magnet. Archers, muzzleloaders and rifle hunters will be thrilled with the many opportunities on the ranch itself and in a very private adjoining section of Routt National Forest, with which the ranch shares over two miles of boundary.
