From the Banks of the White River
The White River is one of Colorado’s best trophy trout rivers. Anglers pull in rainbow trout, brown trout, native whitefish, and other species from the runs, pools, and riffles along a private corridor-mile stretch on the Wakara River Ranch. Public stretches of the river offer more fishing opportunities.
Adding to the enjoyment is a scenic backdrop. The fertile limestone geography of the White River Plateau has perfected the habitat for several species. The prolific volume of insects, grasshoppers, and forage fish life produce trout and 26 inches in length and 4 to 7 pounds.
Quality Hay and Production
Meticulously stewarded, Wakara River Ranch joins other superior hay meadows of the fertile White River Valley. The property can produce up to two tons of hay per acre, a substantial harvest to support a small cattle operation or horses.
