license info: Licensed Real Estate Agent, Corder and Associates, LLC

Like the glint of sunlight reflecting off the glistening blue waters of the Bighorn River, this property is sure to illuminate an ideal spot for a future dream home. Imagine a home surrounded with hues of blues and greens from the lush summer vegetation or oranges, yellows, and reds in the autumn decorating the view from the big picture windows. A spanning porch could provide a favorite location to listen to the natural cacophony of waterfowl and songbirds in rhythm with the lapping waters while they gently glide and pull at the shore. Tranquil and serene, this beautiful location longs to support a hunting cabin, vacation getaway or retreat, or allow a foundation in which to call home. The relatively flat 223 acres can feed whatever dreams you can contemplate. Use the nutritious grasses for grazing cattle or horses. A portion of the acreage is irrigated by means of the Bighorn Irrigation District supplying all of your hydration needs. Do you have a mind for creating opportunity and amassing a profit? Instead of utilizing the plot for just one home, how about dividing it into portions to develop a subdivision of river front homesites for a multitude of inhabitants? Just as diverse as the wildlife and the 38 different species of fish your pole could reel in from the river, this property can be utilized in a variety of ways leaving it up for you to decide. John Lubbock wisely wrote in a novel, “ lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” Live the life you dream of and come see this amazing property!

The Bighorn River is not only one of the best trout streams in Montana but is considered to be one of the finest in the lower forty-eight of the United States. That makes this nationally recognized trout stream a very popular destination spot for a Montana fly fishing trip. Be prepared to consistently pull out large fish as the brown trout average about 15 inches in length and the rainbow about 16 inches in length! The fertile and nutrient-rich waters allow the trout to grow quickly. In the first 13 miles below the Afterbay Dam, the Big Horn flows steady and cool, creating ideal conditions for substantial numbers of fish. These 13 miles are considered to be the best along the whole river, and it is estimated that 3000-5000 fish occupy every mile with proportions over 14 inches long. Choose a busy summer day and see dozens of rafts floating the river with more anglers fishing from the shore. The Bighorn River offers high quality fly fishing throughout the entire year, nonetheless. If you are brave enough to set out during the winter, you will not be alone as there is still consistent activity even in the dead of the cold months. The river is so consistent because of the high-quality hatches. Wade anglers and floaters fish well here, however, any boat can be used because of the lack of rapids. The trout fishing is phenomenal, yet, the river is home to 38 other species of fish. Keep it exciting and see how your angling skills are in this bountiful river.
