About this Ranch

Home » Listings » Ranches » Poage Rio Grande Ranch
Incredible first time offering of this historic ranch located on the Rio Grande River with senior water rights, 6,225± feet of river frontage, and over 9,500± feet of riverbank. This stunning 342± acre ranch has lush green pastures surrounded and interspersed with mature stands of trees throughout the property for a breathtaking working ranch atmosphere. The Rio Grande (“Big River”) was named “El Rio Bravo del Norte,” or “The Fierce River of the North,” by Spanish explorers in the 1500s. The history of the river is as big as the name and the fish that live within its banks. The river forms as two forks, the North Fork flowing southeasterly from the Rio Grande Reservoir in Hinsdale County along State Highway 149 and the shorter and narrower South Fork flowing from Big Meadows Reservoir in Mineral County along US Highway 160 to their confluence at South Fork, Colorado. On any given day during the irrigation season, Colorado diverts 95 percent or more of the Rio Grande to irrigate the farms and pastures of the San Luis Valley. The water rights on this ranch are mainly through the Raber Ditch which is Priority #73 on the Rio Grande River. The decreed amount is 3.8 cfs total from the Raber and Annie Raber ditches, with 1.4 cfs from the Raber Ditch (priority #73), and 2.4 cfs from the Annie Raber (priority 365). There is also a substantial amount of sub-water and numerous wells on the ranch. WATER GALORE! The property has many improvements, including a 1,500± square foot farmhouse, an older bunkhouse, barns, outbuildings, pens, and corrals for working livestock. If ranch work is not what you are looking for, there is a resident herd of elk that partly calls the ranch home as well as trophy mule deer and a variety of other wildlife species. The ranch currently receives disbursement tags for elk (six in the spring and six in the fall). The ranch is in Unit 79 where much-coveted landowner mule deer tags may be applied for and subsequently sold. Private fishing on the ranch’s more than 9,000± feet of riverbank, in the water where trophy trout and pike abound, is an experience like no other. This property is located within a short 10-minute drive to Del Norte for all your conveniences, and a 30- minute drive to a commercial airport in Alamosa. Also, a short drive from the ranch you can experience 1,600± acres of skiing at Wolf Creek Ski Area, known for “The Most Snow in Colorado”. Ranches like the Poage Rio Grande Ranch are what family legacies are made of. The ranch is priced based on a recent and close comparable and is priced to sell quickly.
