Possibly the finest angling ranch in the state, the trophy waters of the Laramie River flow through this Wyoming fishing property for sale for just over 6 miles providing a very scenic and private setting in which to pursue the exceptionally large trout that inhabit this stretch of river. The ranch also boasts world class waterfowl hunting in the fall months along with excellent populations of whitetail deer, mule deer, moose, antelope and a small resident elk herd. Waterfowl hunting opportunities are also not in short supply, with river frontage and a large reservoir on the property.
This property is the result of three ranches being assembled over the years. Because of this, buildings are concentrated in three distinct areas. The working cattle facilities, as well as a modest home, are located just to the east once you cross the bridge onto the property.
Just to the west as you enter the property is a nice ranch home that currently serves as the ranch managers’ house. There is also a large shop, barn and studio next to the home, which sits on an oxbow of the river surrounded by cottonwoods. The ranch managers are wonderful people and have been in their current position for 11 years, a definite asset to the new owner.
The owner’s house and guesthouse are located further west near the western boundary of the property. The house, like the rest of the improvements, is modest but very clean, functional and comfortable. The guesthouse is an old homestead building that was completely remodeled in 2007 and is quite nice with a lot of character, tucked into a large stand of cottonwoods near the western edge of the ranch. There is an existing barn and some other historical outbuildings in this compound as well, which could be used in a number of ways.
With over 6,700± deeded acres and a proven agricultural operation, this ranch is the complete package. The ranch is located 17 miles (20 minute drive) from the vibrant university town of Laramie, WY and its commercial airport. Despite this, it features end of the road privacy and seclusion. Currently owned by the University of Wyoming, proceeds from the sale will go directly to the School of Agriculture for research in animal health.
