The Fly Ranch was first homesteaded in the late 1800s by Fred Gerlach, son of Louis, for whom the town of Gerlach was named. Later it was a part of the John Casey estate, until it was sold to Todd Jaksick (Bright Holland Corporation) in 1998. The feature known as "Fly Geyser" has attracted a substantial amount of interest since it developed from a leaking geothermal well into a striking colorful spouting statue, sitting on a dais of mud amidst ponds of warm water and thriving plants. Although the property is generally off limits to visitors because of liability and vandalism concerns, the Friends of Black Rock High Rock were granted permission to conduct monitored tours of the Fly Geyser in 2007, and we are waiting to find out whether we will be able to do this again in 2008.
