Stahl Ditch is an unlined ditch in Cordua Irrigation District that diverts water from the Yuba River just above Daguerra Point Diversion Dam to farming fields southeast of Ramirez. A metal gate enables water from Cordua Canal, which is just east of Stahl Ditch, to be diverted into Stahl Ditch.

Stahl Ditch is two to four feet deep and varies in width from six to sixteen feet.1 According to United States Geological Survey maps, it was built sometime between 1947 and 1973. A northern segment may have been constructed after 1973.
