Flat Creek Fishing Estate is a rare offering with over ½ mile of private fishing on 34.89 acres. It is situated in an ideal location 6 miles south of historic downtown Jackson Hole. This Jackson Hole ranch is defined by Flat Creek as it meanders along the northern and western boundaries in an open, yet private setting capturing 360-degree views of the Gros Ventre, Snake River and Teton mountain ranges. Flat Creek is a beloved fishery among resident anglers. Access to this superb cutthroat fishery is often secluded as much of the creek flows through privately held lands. With over ½ mile of private fishing onsite and incredible mountain vistas all within close proximity to the amenities of Jackson Hole, this property is sure to satisfy even the most discerning buyer.
Location: Located in the desirable “south park” region of Jackson Hole, Flat Creek Fishing Estate provides an opportunity for an owner to build a dream home in an ideal setting. Situated 6 miles south of the resort amenities of Jackson Hole, this property provides excellent access to shopping, art galleries, museums, outdoor outfitters, fine dining and medical facilities. The property is approximately 25 minutes from Teton Village, home of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, which offers 2,500 acres of in-bound skiable terrain with over 4,000 feet of vertical rise. The Jackson Hole Airport is 30 minutes away and offers commercial air service to the valley through Delta, United, American and Frontier, while also servicing private planes of all sizes. Direct flights include those from Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and San Francisco.
Two of the most scenic and famous national parks in the country are a short drive from the property. Grand Teton National Park is a 20-minute drive and Yellowstone National Park’s southern entrance is an hour and a half to the north. Both the national parks and the ample amount of nearby public lands that make up 97% of Teton County create endless opportunities for outdoor recreation during all seasons. Nearby is the renowned 3 Creek Ranch Golf Club which includes a pristine 18-hole Rees Jones golf course and clubhouse that features world-class dining, picturesque fairways and Grand Teton views with a host of family-friendly amenities. Memberships are available to play the scenic course and enjoy the exquisite cuisine and social activities.
Live Water: Flat Creek is one of Jackson Hole’s iconic fisheries providing a spring creek feel with the largest Fine Spotted Snake River cutthroat trout in the valley. With ½ mile of the stream running along the western boundary of this property, the opportunities for private and convenient angling are superb. Flat Creek emerges in the Gros Ventre Mountains, meanders through the National Wildlife Elk Refuge, flows through the town of Jackson, and winds through mostly private land until it ultimately meets with Snake River. While the section of stream on the National Wildlife Elk Refuge is popular for anglers who come to the West from around the world, the private stretches are somewhat unknown to many due to the lack of public access. The Refuge section of the stream is productive, though it has a limited 3-month season set by the State of Wyoming. Fishing on the ½ mile of Flat Creek that flows through this property does not have timeframe restrictions, thus opening up many additional opportunities for angling throughout the year.
Located approximately 2 miles upstream of the confluence with the Snake River, this stretch of stream has all the necessary components to be attractive to trout. Given the transient nature of the cutthroat trout, this proximity to the Snake River is very important for constantly recruiting new fish running into prime summer waters. Deep pools, riffles, undercut banks and riparian vegetation are all present on the property providing shelter, spawning habitat and ample food sources for the native fish. Insect life is abundant and diverse with many species of stonefly, caddisfly, mayfly, midge and terrestrials food, which will keep trout happy during the prime fishing months.
The Snake River is accessible 5 minutes from the ranch and offers exciting dry fly fishing. A float trip on the Snake River is a popular way to experience the fantastic angling as well as the breathtaking scenery of the Tetons and the surrounding Jackson Hole valley. Numerous “blue ribbon” fishing opportunities are available in this region. Within an hour south of property, the Green, Hoback and Salt Rivers offer some of the best fishing in Wyoming. The Henry’s Fork, Warm River, Fall River, Teton River and the South Fork of the Snake River are in eastern Idaho, and are less than one and half hours from Jackson Hole. Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks also beckon the angler for day or weekend trips with miles of diverse backcountry streams, including the Firehole, Lamar, Madison and Yellowstone.
