Description

The Pick Bar Ranch, a long standing ranch and one of the largest riverfront, recreational and productive ranches in La Plata County contains a healthy portion of everything a classic Western Ranch ought to have: well-watered meadowlands, a forest of tall pines, endless mountain views, abundant wildlife and a river with a record of producing monster trout. Add in the solid infrastructure of a proven cattle operation, and the Pick Bar Ranch carries its weight as one of the finest recreation and working ranch properties in southern Colorado. The Pick Bar Ranch occupies 1008.9 acres in the scenic Pine River valley, a few miles north of Bayfield, on the main road to Vallecito Reservoir. Located at approximately 7000 feet, the ranch has a Ponderosa forest section and a meadow section. The eastern section is dominated by extensive forests of mature ponderosa pine, with abundant draws to shelter mule deer, elk and black bear and private access to national forest. The western meadow section contains the ranch headquarters, irrigated meadowlands and the riparian corridor of the Pine River and Bear Creek, vegetated with a lovely mix of pines and native cottonwoods. Water makes or breaks ranches in southern Colorado, and the Pick Bar Ranch is blessed with over a mile of the coveted Pine River, and a mile of its tributary, Bear Creek. Senior water rights of a healthy 3.278 c.f.s. ensures that nearly 200 acres of hay is well-watered, including a 1/4-mile radius pivot. As a result, the ranch has been a solid cattle producer since 1883, and currently supports up to 70 AUs year-round, with winter pasture and summer grazing all available on-property. The Pine River is a closely guarded fishery among those who are fortunate enough to control access to it. Rich in insect life, and partially controlled by the outflow from Vallecito Reservoir, the Pine can produce some of the largest brown and rainbow trout in Colorado. Not far upstream from the Pick Bar Ranch, a 40-inch rainbow was recently caught, and trophy browns and rainbows in the multi-pound category live throughout the river, including on the mile of river on the Pick Bar Ranch. Careful riparian habitat management and engineered habitat improvements ensure that the Pine on the Pick Bar will continue to grow and retain trout of bragging proportions. The mountain portion of the ranch adjoins public land in the 2.5-million-acre San Juan National Forest, which makes for hunting opportunities for both mule deer and elk. Both species can often be seen on the ranch, especially when
