Wakara River Ranch Colorado: The White River Country near Meeker, Colorado has long been known as some of the finest territories in the state for producing quality hay, abundant big game, and second-to-none fly fishing, and the Wakara River Ranch excels in all three. Buyers looking for a smaller working cattle/hay ranch with trophy fishing and big game hunting will want to take a serious look at this 132-acre gem located just ten miles up the White River from Meeker.
The Wakara River Ranch sits on the banks of the magnificent White River, one of Colorado’s best trophy trout rivers. Fed by the fertile limestone geology of the White River Plateau, the White River is perfect habitat for rainbow and brown trout and native whitefish that are measured in pounds rather than inches. An exceptional biomass of insect and forage fish life produces Wakara trout that frequently reach 22 to 26 inches in length, and 4 to 7 pounds. Flyfishers in particular will delight in the runs, pools and riffles of the river on the ranch as hatches are heavy for most of the summer months. Grasshopper season is especially exciting! Several public stretches of the White River are a short drive up or down stream from the ranch, offering additional fishing opportunities.
