Established Montana Ranch with Water Galore
The Grasshopper Creek Ranch consists of 1,883+/- acres located at the confluence of Grasshopper Creek and the infamous blue ribbon Beaverhead River. An incredible recreational opportunity awaits a buyer looking for a one of a kind fishery with incredible potential for upland birds and big game.
Grasshopper Creek, which runs top to bottom through the ranch, offers over 85 acres in riparian and flood/sub-irrigated land, and produces the majority of water irrigating the property.
A four bedroom, two bathroom house, with a two car garage was built in 1955 and was updated not long ago.
The mild climate makes this the perfect small cattle operation. There are a couple of hay meadows off the creek bottom and the remainder of the ranch is made up of native pasture spread throughout the beautiful rolling hills.
The riparian bottom carves through the heart of the ranch offering irrigated meadows and willow lined banks providing an excellent food source and bedding area for the property’s resident big game species. The pond provides opportunities for duck hunting. There are opportunties to enhance wildlife habitat.
Grasshopper Creek meanders through the property for well over a mile before pouring into an excellent section of the Beaverhead River. The Beaverhead is one of North America’s most sought after tailwater fisheries and one can only imagine what the lower end of Grasshopper Creek must fish like being the Beaverhead River’s main spawning tributary
Not only is the property itself quite the recreational gem, but it borders thousands of BLM, State and Forest Service acres. The Beaverhead River dissects a small portion of the ranch and hopping on I-15 for 5 minutes can give you other public access points from Clark Canyon Dam to the town of Dillon, MT.
The combination of agricultural opportunities and recreation offerings make this a diverse ranch with great potential. Whether you seek a place to run a small cattle operation or a home base for your Montana adventures, the Grasshopper Creek Ranch in Southwest Montana has it all.
