Located along 2± miles of one of the world’s greatest fly fishing rivers is the West End River Ranch. Positioned conveniently between the towns of Livingston and Big Timber, the ranch’s 3,760± diversified acres have been managed meticulously for the past 37 years, enhancing both wildlife and range productivity. From its northern boundary, the ranch feathers down toward the famous Yellowstone River. Multiple coulées and drainages lined with cottonwood, aspen and willow trees serve as excellent wildlife corridors. As the ranch drops in elevation, the lush rolling grasslands and meadows splinter into productive pivot irrigated fields. Then onward to the rich riparian zone teeming with a multitude of birds and big game. The river bottom or “riparian area” is a forest of mature cottonwood trees and small juniper. The thick grass provides a nursery in the spring and summer months for a myriad of nesting birds, waterfowl and does birthing their fawns.
