Imnaha River Ranch
The Imnaha River Ranch provides the rare and unique opportunity to own a piece of private river frontage along one of the Pacific Northwest’s premium Steelhead and trout fisheries. This exceptional 4,655.9 +/- acre property is backed by national forestland to the east and runs 3+/- miles along the heart of the Imnaha River.
Located only 30+/- miles from the famous Wallowa Valley and known to many for its distinguished beauty, trophy hunting, and outstanding fishing, this expansive ranch has a well-known reputation. The ranch ranges in elevation from approximately 3,000 feet at the ranch headquarters, that overlook the river, to over 5,200+/- feet on the highest points.
Improvements on the ranch support a current operation of 500-800+/- head of cattle during the fall, winter and spring months. The gentle high-volume grass slopes are filled with flush thickets, creeks, and springs that provide great habitat for livestock and wildlife alike. The recreational opportunities are limitless. The Imnaha River runs on the Western boundary of the ranch and holds Rainbow trout, Bull trout, Steelhead, and Chinook salmon. The ranch provides (4) four Land Owner Preference Tags and is located in the Snake River Unit. The property maintains healthy populations of Mule deer, White-tailed deer, Rocky Mountain elk, turkey, black bear, and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. The upland game bird population consists of Chukar, quail, Hungarian partridge, roughed grouse, and blue grouse.
No two days are alike in the Imnaha valley. Living at the bottom of a canyon accentuates seasonal changes. There is a twist or a turn in the weather most days allowing patterns of light on the canyon walls to change from sunup to sundown. There are a lot of special unique features to this property, but without a doubt, the river and its intimate relationship to the property’s unique topography is the most extraordinary.
