The 1,311 deeded-acre Circle C Ranch is located in Northern California's scenic Modoc County. The ranch sits just 7 minutes north of Adin, and 40 minutes southwest of Alturas, CA. It is about 70 miles south of the Oregon state line and 70 miles west of the Nevada state line. The Circle C Ranch is a trophy property for fishing and hunting. The property has approximately four miles of private fishing along Ash Creek, which meanders through the ranch. Ash Creek is full of native Rainbow, Redband, and Brown trout that naturally reproduce in the stream. They range in size from fingerling to 24 inches. The icing on the cake is the first priority adjudicated water rights* from the creek. Currently, 325± acres are irrigated for hay production and grazing. The property makes an excellent cattle ranch. Historically, it has been a summer grazing ranch supporting 120 cows and 400 steers from May through October. Aside from fishing, additional recreational attributes include horseback riding, ATV, and hunting. The ranch is located in the X-3A, a premium hunting zone. Improvements on the property include a 1,630 SF home, an equipment shed, two barns, and a workshop. The Circle C Ranch is what one would envision if it were possible to have a first-class recreational facility with incredible water and enough land to run cattle.
