Papa's Creek Ranch presents a rare opportunity for those seeking private fishing and waterfowl hunting in one of Wyoming's most scenic valleys. We seldom encounter a property that controls such a disproportionately large amount of live water for its acreage. In Wyoming's Star Valley, 65 miles from Jackson Hole, Papa's Creek has two trout streams meandering on the 178 acres. The Salt River courses through the ranch for approximately 1.35 miles while ''Papa's Creek'' provides another +1.5 miles of private spring creek frontage. It is worth stating that Wyoming Stream access laws protect both Papa's Creek and the Salt River with no public access easements. This unique scenario allows the landowner complete control to enjoy and invest with utmost confidence in these private, dynamic resources Acreage Papa's Creek Ranch is a classic river bottom setting with the rich riparian zones of the Salt River and Papa's Creek dominating the landscape. The valley floor here is flat with limited tree cover, aside from the willows that line the banks of the Salt River providing cover for the brown and cutthroat trout. The ranch has been carefully managed over the years with a keen eye towards recreation while preserving and enhancing these magical waterways. No grazing has been done on the ranch in recent memory, so the river and creek banks are pristine. A hay crop is harvested annually to maximize land use while preserving agricultural tax status. The water rights on Papa's Creek are rare and valuable, the rights are deemed Territorial and date back prior to Wyoming statehood. Irrigation water is delivered to the approximately 80 acres of irrigated meadows via a series of ditches. The land is flood irrigated and produces a robust crop of high mountain hay on a single cutting. Live Water Seldom do we encounter a property that controls such a disproportionately large amount of live water for its acreage. The Salt River is renowned for its crystal-clear waters and abundant populations of wild brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout.With so many world famous rivers nearby, the Salt River often "flies under the radar", receiving much less fishing pressure than some of its high profile neighbors such as the Snake River and the South Fork of the Snake. Ripe with juicy undercut banks, classic riffles, and quiet pools, the Salt River ribbons through Papa's Creek Ranch for 1.35 miles. The fish are healthy, abundant, and see little stress at this upper end of the Salt River system, as float traffic is minimized based on the limited public access points. Meandering currents and deep pools provide an ideal habitat for these prized game fish. The quiet banks of the ranch offer a spectacular place to cast a fly against a backdrop of majestic mountains and valley greenery. The 1.5 miles of private spring creek frontage of Papa's Creek offers an opportunity to create a spectacular, 100% private spring creek fishery. Papa's Creek is inhabited with trout now, but to truly realize its potential, the stream should undergo a stream enhancement project with focus on developing more holding water and narrowing up certain reaches to improve stream velocity. Star Valley is home to some of the finest spring creeks fisheries in the West; we believe a thoughtfully executed enhancement plan would place Papa's Creek amongst that list. Both the Salt River and private waters of Papa's Creek provide ample opportunities for anglers of all levels. Your fishing adventures continue at world-renowned fisheries such as the South Fork, the Snake River, and the Green River which are a short drive away. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner looking to learn the art of fly fishing, these onsite and nearby rivers offer the finest the West has to offer. The tranquility of these pristine waters and the thrill of catching trophy-sized brown and cutthroat trout create memories that will last a lifetime.
