Overview: It is rare for a property of this caliber to come onto the ranch market. The 860-acre Dogwood Valley Ranch boasts excellent private fly fishing for trophy brown and rainbow trout on the New Fork River, below some of the most scenic mountains in the West, all a mile from downtown Pinedale. In addition, the meticulously built custom home perfectly complements the landscape with excellent design and construction by local builders and artisans. As a productive cattle operation, this ranch currently provides a solid base for a local cattle rancher. This turn-key property is ideal for a fly fishing and waterfowl hunting retreat.
Live Water: The New Fork River is one of the most iconic rivers in the United States, and it is known to produce very large brown and rainbow trout. This river originates above New Fork Lakes and gets much of its water from small mountain tributaries within the Wind River Mountain Range. From there it flows through many privately-held ranches, providing much needed irrigation water to many of the cattle operations upstream of the ranch. As the river winds through hay meadows for 16 miles, it gets recharged by irrigation water that re-enters the river. At the northern boundary of the ranch, a main tributary in Willow Creek empties into the New Fork, and the river really comes to life. This ensures fresh, cold water for the trout of Dogwood Valley Ranch, creating a fishery that can be enjoyed much of the year. The river winds through the property for approximately 1½ miles before exiting to the south. Each run and bend is home to trophy brown and rainbow trout, some of which will top the 5-pound mark. There are two oxbows in the river right next to the home, which hold resident trout year round. On the northern section of the property, Willow Creek flows for a third of a mile before running into the New Fork River. This is a main tributary of the New Fork and will provide additional private angling opportunities.
Improvements: Built on the banks of the New Fork River, the custom ranch home is perfectly sited and well built. On a clear day one can see 3 mountain ranges from the home including the Wind River, Gros Ventre, and Wyoming ranges. Built in 2004, by a local builder, this elegant log home has “best of the best” finishes including wood floors made of rescued Oak that were cut and milled over 100 years ago. The home consists of approximately 4,000 sqft including 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and a bunk loft.
Summary: Comprised of 860 deeded acres, this legacy ranch is surrounded by the iconic Wind River Range, Gros Ventre Range and the Wyoming Range. Including 1 ½ miles of the New Fork River, the Dogwood Valley Ranch is a fishing paradise offering daily opportunities to catch the brown trout of a lifetime. Operationally, this ranch is efficient, giving an owner the chance to run a small herd and spin off income. The ranch is less than a mile from the amenities of Pinedale, Wyoming, and 75 miles from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, by way of paved highways. This property also enjoys excellent access via air travel, with a private airport in Pinedale and commercial service offered from Jackson Hole. The Dogwood Valley Ranch is a wonderful opportunity to own a beautiful and exciting piece of the West.
