Located along 3.5± miles of one of the world’s greatest fly fishing rivers is the Engwis Ranch. Positioned conveniently between the towns of Livingston and Big Timber, the ranch’s 5,556± diversified acres have been managed meticulously for the past 37 years, enhancing both wildlife and range productivity.
From its northern boundary, the ranch feathers down toward the famous Yellowstone River. Multiple coulées and drainages lined with cottonwood, aspen and willow trees serve as excellent wildlife corridors. As the ranch drops in elevation the lush rolling grasslands and meadows splinter into productive pivot irrigated fields. Then onward to the rich riparian zone teaming with a multitude of birds and big game. The river bottom or “riparian area” is a forest of mature cottonwood trees and small juniper. The thick grass provides a nursery in the spring and summer months for a myriad of nesting birds, water fowl and does birthing their fawns. Watch where you step. But, do keep stepping. Next stop, the mighty Yellowstone River and blue-ribbon fishing.
The ranch is surrounded by “Big Sky” views in all directions. The Gallatin Mountains to the West, the Absaroka/Beartooth range to the south and Crazy Mountains to the North. As the seasons change so do the breathtaking vistas. For additional photos please visit www.engwisranch.com
We just received exciting news for the 5,556± acre Engwis Ranch and surrounding landowners: the threat of a neighboring wind farm has been mitigated! Local landowners worked together and were successful in getting a preliminary injunction placed on Pattern Energy and their plans to install a commercial wind farm just west of the Ranch. Commercial wind farms can have serious impacts on surrounding landowners, and in this case would be disruptive to an important part of the Yellowstone River Corridor.
