When asked about the famous Fish On Ranch, College Football Hall of Fame Coach and former Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Tom Osborn said: "The best three days of fishing I have ever had was in one day at the Fish On Ranch". Mr. Osborn is not alone in proclaiming the Fish On Ranch as one of the best trout fisheries in the U.S. Those who have been lucky enough to experience the Fish On Ranch first hand all agree, this impressive ranch is truly one of a kind. The property encompasses 5 ponds, over 1.5 miles of deeded riverfront, and ¾ of a mile of continuous leased river frontage on the Little Laramie River. The ranch is also home to a local herd of elk and deer with tremendous trophy hunting opportunities.
As world-class as the fishing and hunting is on the ranch, the improvements are equally impressive. The Fish On Ranch boasts 5 different Homes, Recreation Center with Commercial Kitchen, Heated Horse Barn, Riding Arena with Roping Shoots, Storage Barns, and a Trap/ Rifle Range. In all, there are 35 beds on the ranch, not including the ranch manager’s house. If that wasn’t enough, this ranch is being sold fully furnished, with all fixtures, furnishings, ATV’s, snowmobiles, tractor, equipment, horses, trailers, elevated hunting towers, etc, etc, included in the asking price. In short, the Fish On Ranch provides a unique combination of quality improvements, ranching, and recreational opportunities that are of the highest quality and truly unmatched anywhere.
If not already obvious, the recreational opportunities on and around the Fish On Ranch are almost limitless. This fishery has been professionally engineered and designed to maximize the health of the river, and consequently the trout that inhabit it. This stretch of the Little Laramie holds Brown, Rainbow, Brooke, and Cutthroat Trout with the larger fish weighing in upwards of 10lbs! The 5 ponds on the property are also inhabited by trophy size trout. The 2 largest ponds have underwater bubbler aerators to keep the fish healthy as well as provide excellent waterfowl hunting in the fall.
Speaking of hunting, the ranch is ideally set up to provide trophy elk and deer hunting. With irrigated hay fields, numerous springs and water sources, and close proximity to the national forest, this property consistently produces both the quality and quantity of big game that southern Wyoming is famous for. The ranch is located in Unit 9 for Elk and the owners of the ranch are guaranteed Elk and Deer tags.
