Papa’s Creek Ranch presents a rare opportunity for those seeking private fishing and waterfowl hunting in one of Wyoming’s most scenic valleys. Seldom do we encounter a property that controls such a disproportionately large amount of live water for its acreage. Set in Wyoming’s Star Valley, just 65 miles from Jackson Hole, Papa’s Creek has two trout streams meandering through the 179 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. I“It is worth stating that both Papa’s Creek and the Salt River are protected by Wyoming Stream access laws with no public access easements that often encumber other Salt River properties. This unique scenario allows the landowner full control to enjoy and invest with the utmost confidence in these dynamic resources.”
For those in the angling community, the Salt River is no secret, it harbors excellent populations of both Cutthroat and Brown Trout. Papa’s Creek is lesser known, as for the last 30 years it has only been fished and hunted by ownership and their invited guests. The ranch controls the entire fishable reach of Papa’s Creek, including its confluence with the Salt River. Spring creeks in the west, and especially spring creeks in Star Valley, have always been a sought-after resource that rarely sees the open market.
Papa’s Creek Ranch enjoys unfettered views with prominent views of the high peaks of Salt River Range to the east and the Webster Range to the West. The ranch is unencumbered by conservation easements or restrictions and benefits from expectational water rights. The setting and all the ingredients are in place to enjoy a true recreational paradise.
