The Imnaha River Ranch is a sportsman’s paradise with over 2 miles of riverfront on the Imnaha River. This one-of-a-kind property includes world-class salmon, steelhead, and wonderful trout fishing right out the back door. Big game hunting in the breaks of the Imnaha is exceptional, with the ranch having five drainages coming down through the property from the higher elevations. This includes elk, mule deer, bear, and turkey. The steep cliffs make up the Imnaha drainage and create breathtaking, year-round wildlife viewing. The main headquarters is situated on the river’s edge with irrigated alfalfa and a summer Forest Service allotment for grazing 185 pairs. With views looking up and down the valley and vistas to the east and west, this is a low elevation ranch and a prime location for the best weather year-round.
The ranch is in the Imnaha River drainage, with the Imnaha River bordering the ranch and another four smaller creeks that flow through the ranch. The Imnaha is a small, wild stream that holds wild and hatchery steelhead. It is somewhat protected by its remoteness and has very little public access. The pools are smaller, but this can make for some great fishing on the 2.5 miles of river frontage flowing through the ranch. The views are stunning, with steep, rugged canyon walls that form the mountains above the ranch. The drainages that intersect throughout the ranch form wonderful wildlife habitat. There is also an apple orchard that is more of a wildlife feeding area than anything else.
