Consisting of 380 deeded acres, this beautiful Wyoming ranch has approximately 200 irrigated acres. It produces roughly one ton of native grass hay per acre, with the remaining balance comprised of pasture and sagebrush mixed. New Fork Meadows offers breathtaking views of the Wind River Mountain Range (home of Gannet Peak, the highest peak in Wyoming at 13,804’) and the Gros Ventre Range. The ranch borders BLM and State land, offering thousands of additional acres to enjoy and explore. Historically the ranch has been used for hay production and cattle grazing.
New Fork Meadows offers 100% private wade fishing on the New Fork River that meanders through the ranch for over 1½ miles. An additional mile of river is accessible on the adjacent state land that borders New Fork Meadows to the south. The ranch is a few miles downstream from the New Fork Lakes providing a tailwater fishery with no float traffic, giving anglers a truly private fishing experience. In this area, the New Fork River consistently produces wild trout in the 14-24” range and boasts clear water that fishes well from mid April when the ice melts until it freezes again in late November. There is no muddy run-off. This bountiful fishery offers wild trout fishing and will challenge anglers with its deep pools, riffles, and willow-lined undercut banks. The New Fork River is well known for large brown trout, as well as rainbow, cutthroat, and cutt-bow trout. Browns in the 14-18” range are fairly common with some surpassing 24”in length. The New Fork River starts in the Wind River Mountains, then flows into the New Fork Lakes and eventually joins the Green River southwest of Boulder, Wyoming.
Due to the dynamic ecological and scenic attributes of New Fork Meadows, it could offer an incoming landowner the opportunity to capture significant tax benefits with the placement of a conservation easement. This would help preserve the wild and scenic qualities of this New Fork River property in perpetuity.
New Fork Meadows has easy access and is conveniently located 14 miles from Pinedale. This top-of-the-line sporting property offers over 1 ½ miles of private fishing with access to an additional 1 mile of fishing on the adjacent state land. The privacy, Upper Green River Valley views, and accessibility to public lands make this coveted property a true legacy ranch.
