A note from the homeowner: My grandparents bought this property "The Cohn Fishing Ranch" in 1972. They were fishing in the area for years and when this property came onto the market, they jumped at the opportunity to buy it. It is truly unique in terms of beauty, seclusion, and as a result of the incredible fishing on our 1-mile stretch of the Encampment river.
