River Island Property
The River Island Property is located in western Colorado, on the Colorado River south of the Town of Silt. Adjacent to city limits this 112-acre parcel is situated between two channels of the River, with approximately two miles of river frontage. This unique level parcel, has open irrigated grass fields, dotted with large mature Cottonwood trees and significant water rights from the Burnett Ditch.
The elevation is a friendly 5234 feet and from the property you have views of the Colorado River running west along the property; and panoramic views of the Mamm Mountain to the Southwest. The riparian areas along the riverbanks, mature trees and cover provided by fauna and flora native to the Colorado River area, provide perfect habitat for Mule deer, Rio Grande Turkey, Blue Heron and many types of waterfowl. This is a great opportunity to further develop habitat for fishing and for the wildlife, the property has been permitted for a series of piscatorial ponds.
There are many recreation opportunities due to the location of the property and its river access; including but not limited to tubing, paddle boarding, camping, hunting and fishing. This is the perfect location to end a float trip down the river, with many take out locations along the riverbank. From early summer all the way through winter this part of the Colorado River is generally fishable through late winter. There is a fairly even mix of brown trout and rainbow trout with a healthy dose of whitefish. Some of these fish reach giant proportions and fish in the range of 24 to 30 inches are always a possibility.
The location and amenities of this versatile property provides a buyer with a recreation property to enjoy with family and friends while at the same time having a solid investment for the future.
