Robb Report features two Hall and Hall ranches for sale

Elk Creek Ranch, featured in the March/April 2011 issue of Robb Report Exceptional Properties, has a homestead for sale listed with Hall and Hall. This Colorado ranch in the White River Valley features more than 25 miles of the country’s most coveted dry-fly fishing, spanning the White River to the South Fork and Elk Creek. The home is listed at $1.8 million.

Colorado’s White River Valley, with its pristine waters and the 235,000-acre Flat Tops Wilderness, has long been acknowledged as one of the premier fly-fishing regions in North America. Beginning in the late 1940s, Bill Wheeler’s family began buying property there, and since 1988, Wheeler, an angler of no small renown, had operated an acclaimed commercial fishing lodge a few miles outside the town of Meeker.

“But what I always wanted was more of a club atmosphere, a shared community where the owners could enjoy comfortable homes and fish and hunt to their heart’s content,” says Wheeler.

Wheeler turned his 2,850-acre parcel of Colorado ranch real estate into a sporting community, and he is committed to keeping 98 percent of the land undeveloped. The White River and Elk Creek meander through the ranch, and a dozen small lakes dot the property.

“It’s like Disney World for trout fishermen,” Wheeler told Morris.

Homeowners can also pursue one of the country’s largest elk herds, which wanders the Flat Tops Mountains. These mountains surround the White River Valley and Elk Creek Ranch.

For those looking for a private fly-fishing ranch for sale, Robb Report provides details on another Hall and Hall listing, this one in Idaho. Moose Creek Ranch offers fishing access on both sides of the Big Lost River for a stretch of three-quarters of a mile. The property provides habitat for moose, mule and whitetail deer, wild turkey, raptors, waterfowl, and upland game birds. This 500-acre Hall and Hall ranch with two furnished fishing cabins is listed at $2.8 million.
