We believe that River Ranch's ability to produce premium Extra virgin Olive Oil is directly related to the climatic influence of the Umpqua River that borders the olive grove. The name Umpqua derived from an Indian name for a special place along the river. The river runs through Douglas County. The Umpqua River boasts some of the world's best fly-fishing, salmon fishing, and sturgeon fishing. Umpqua river fishing is also famous for its small-mouth bass, striped bass, and shad population.
