The Island Ranch historically has been, and still is, an exceptional cattle ranch with a carrying capacity of approximately 400 AU’s.  The ranch includes all Powder River corrals. There is a 35 hp pump on the Fall River for the upper pastures with NO restrictions on the amount of water pumped, there is a 65 hp pump on the Fall River for the middle pastures and hay field, with completely enclosed piping for irrigation and another 35 hp pump on the lower end of the property to dewater the lower portion of the ranch.

Furthermore, the Island Ranch has the potential to be converted into an expectational producing wild rice ranch.


World Renown Fly Fishing on the Fall River:

The Fall River is the largest of California’s spring creeks, fed by several icy aquifers coming from the snows and glaciers of Mount Shasta.

It is the nation’s largest spring system, creating a wonderland of crystal-clear, 50-degree rainbow trout habitat. At the same time it is both the finest spring creek fly fishing opportunity in California and one of the best in the United States. It is certainly the angling showpiece of the entire Shasta Cascade region and one of the richest spring fed rivers in the world.


The Island Ranch is one of the most ecologically important ranches to become available for sale in the Western States.
