This working ranch supports approximately 600 head of cattle. The ranch has excellent surface and underground water rights including 1,025 acre-feet of underground water rights plus 3,532 acre-feet of Clear Creek water rights. The ranch controls all access to Clear Water Canyon, which covers over 10 miles of one of the longest, contiguous, perennial streams and riparian systems in the Great Basin. Along with annual snow fall and natural water shed, Clear Creek is fed by over 80 springs and artesian wells. All of these factors provide ideal year-round cold water conditions to maintain a thriving trout habitat. In addition to the creek access, there are 3 fishing ponds on the property averaging about 3 acres each, all fed by the creek. Fish in the ponds include bass and rainbow trout. There are cottonwood groves and meadows all along the stream corridor. In addition to the trout habitat, other abundant wildlife on the ranch includes mule deer, chukar, quail, ducks, and geese.
Improvements on the property include approximately 740 irrigated acres with 6 pivots for sprinkler irrigation using water from Clear Creek. Water flows from the creek to the ponds, through a pipeline to the pivots resulting in low costs for part of the year. There are 2 large diameter irrigation wells, both less than 4 years old, and new pumping equipment in both. A ranch managers home and equipment yard on the far western portion of the property are completely separate from the recreational portion which is to the east. In the canyon on the eastern recreational portion of the ranch there is a charming hand-hewn log cottage with a wraparound porch and a sleeping loft, approx. 500 sq. ft. In addition, there is a small fishing cabin near the ponds.
All water features including ditches, piping, diversions, etc. are in excellent condition to assure maintenance of the ponds and field irrigation. The stream has potential for future development of an efficient hydroelectric system.
