Trout Creek Ranch

2017 Landowner of the Year - Cody Region
Get Involved / Landowner of the Year / Trout Creek Ranch

Landowners: Robert and Michele Keith

The Trout Creek Ranch owned by Robert Keith is nestled in the Wapiti Valley between Cody and Yellowstone National Park.  Corey and Renae Williams manage the ranch. Trout Creek, a blue ribbon fishery for rainbow and Yellowstone cutthroat trout, meanders four miles through the ranch, providing incredible wildlife habitat. 
Trout Creek Ranch is known for their breeding, training, showing, and sale of quality quarter horses as well as using them for ranch work.
Four separate diversions in Trout Creek irrigate lower elevation fields for high quality grazing and crop production.  The ranch demonstrates an understanding of wildlife and habitat and incorporates that into ranch management. 
When stream levels run low in late summer or during drought, the ranch foregoes irrigation of some fields to ensure enough water remains in the stream for aquatic life.  They constantly monitor their resources and adjust accordingly.
Trout Creek Ranch exemplifies the level of land and aquatic stewardship, and concern for wildlife and their habitat that the Department is proud to recognize.
