Meyers Yampa Ranch Colorado: Agriculture, recreation, and luxury join hands in spectacular fashion on the Meyers Yampa River Ranch downstream of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Long before the ski industry discovered Steamboat Springs, the Yampa River valley was a ranching stronghold. Well-watered, the 414-acre Meyers Yampa River Ranch produces a healthy cutting of hay each year, and has been leased for cattle grazing. A the Meyers Yampa River Ranch, the ranching tradition is alive and well.
The core of the ranch is one and one-half miles of both banks of the cottonwood-lined Yampa River itself, that produces proportionately large trout. With extensive habitat improvements, this section of the Yampa consistently grows many rainbows and browns well over 20 inches and in excess of four pounds. Anglers who know the Yampa well will put its trout up against any in the West for sheer tenacity and muscle. For hunting and wildlife watching, the river attracts mule deer and elk as well.
