My Notes

West Valley Ranch, best described as a recreational wonderland. The ranch consists of 3,342+/- acres in Modoc and Lassen Counties at the base of the majestic Warner Mountain range and is mostly surrounded by FS and BLM lands. The West Valley Reservoir lays primarily with-in the ranch boundaries with 970 acres of surface water, 7 miles of shoreline and 30 ft deep at its peak. One of the jewels of this unique ranch is the 3+ miles of private spring fed streams. The creeks are full of brown and rainbow trout. As the creeks merge and flow into the 175 acres of meadow lands, some of the water is diverted into irrigation canals, enabling the land owner to flood irrigate the entire 175 acres creating lush green meadows year round. A ranchers dream come true, free water, easy irrigation and capacity to run 225 pair of cows from May to November. The old ranch home has not been lived in for over 11 years and is in need of maintenance and upgrading. The home ran off a battery/generator system. There are several outbuildings and a large pole barn. The ranch has been in the Van Loan family since the early 1900's and has been used as a cattle/hay operation to date.Property Highlights:The West Valley Reservoir is popular for boating, water skiing, kayaking, windsurfing, swimming and camping. There is public access from Forest Service lands with a concrete boat launch. Native and planted rainbow and Eagle Lake trout, perch and bass are there for the avid angler. The reservoir was created for irrigation purposes for ranches down the valley, some formally owned by the Van Loans who were instrumental in the creation of the dam. The water level will start to drop in July through September, but always has a good supply of water.Cedar and Parsnips creeks are the main water-flows, there are several other seasonal creeks and year round and seasonal springs, both warm and cold that end up in the creek system. The stream flows into the southern portion of the reservoir. Imagine over 3 miles of private fishing grounds.In the past, the land owner hayed the meadow grass but now is used primarily for grazing and creates a playground for waterfowl; blue hereon, sand hill cranes, pelicans, ducks, geese, hawks, golden and bald eagles. Other birds such as quail, grouse and sage hen are also found here.Located in the X3b deer zone, the ranch qualifies for 2 land owner tags obtained through Fish and Game.The ranch is mostly fenced, both solid rock fencing and barbed wire. There is a BLM grazing permit for 50 aum. The ranch is currently leased for grazing.The old home site sits on the South West edge of the reservoir. The home has not been lived in for several years and will need some maintenance and upgrading. There are several outbuildings and a unique rock cool house. The home ran off a battery/generator system, there is no power on the ranch. Huge potential for hydro, wind and solar. The home site is fenced.The Pit River is nearby, as well as, Moon Lake, Blue Lake, and numerous reservoirs.ATV, horseback riding, or hiking, you can do it all right on your own property.  More Less
