The Diamond S Ranch is a small working ranch just two miles west of Hyattville with highly sought-after private fly fishing and magnificent views of the Bighorn Mountains. The ranch’s 600± deeded acre headquarters is predominately highly fertile irrigated land producing multiple alfalfa/grass cuttings every year under sprinkler and flood irrigation. The ranch’s 413± acres of territorial water rights come from both Paint Rock Creek and Medicine Lodge Creek. This 600± deeded acres sits adjacent to well over 100,000 acres of state and BLM lands which connect to 1.1 million acres of the Bighorn National Forrest. The ranch has just shy of two miles of extraordinary private fishing on both sides of Paint Rock Creek which is enhanced in this area by numerous natural springs. The main deeded portion of the ranch offers excellent waterfowl and upland bird hunting along with good populations of whitetail deer. When combined with access to adjacent public lands, the Diamond S is truly a recreational paradise. The improvements consist of a newly constructed two-story ranch home, the original historic ranch manager’s house, a fishing cabin, and four working shops or sheds used for both livestock and equipment. In summary, a modest operating ranch with extraordinary recreational amenities.
