Approximately 5,000 deeded acres and 2,310 acres of BLM lease of choice grasslands and river bottom hay fields along 2 miles of the Greybull River and in the foothills of the Absaroka Mountains, the Flying River Ranch stands out as one of the premier ranches in the Cody area.
Years of careful stewardship have paid off for the two miles of the cutthroat-filled Greybull River and a diversity of wildlife that is a great representation of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. For those buyers who are looking for a package of cattle ranching, excellent big game hunting, wildlife viewing and world-class trout fishing, the Flying River Ranch is at the top of the list. Big game hunting on the ranch is superb. Trophy whitetail deer, elk, mule deer, antelope, black bear and mountain lions have all been seen on the ranch. The ranch qualifies for coveted Wyoming landowner deer, antelope and elk tags.
The Greybull River, which flows through two miles of the ranch, supports one of the best remaining populations of genetically pure Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. These trout are direct descendants from the fish that lived here when the land was the domain of the Shoshone Indians. Many cutthroats on the ranch grow in excess of 20 inches because they benefit from the superb water quality and the health riparian environment that exists on the ranch.
Improvements on the ranch consist of 3 homes, one of which is an historic rock home, a large wooden barn, an equipment shed, corrals and a loafing shed. The Flying river Ranch owns substantial water rights capable of irrigating more than 600 acres. In addition there is a 900 gallon-per-minute irrigation well and an artesian well that flows year around.
