Snake River and Battle Creek Remote Escape Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout

Savery, Wyoming, USA

6 Anglers Maximum

Fishing per day: starting at $150 per guest

This property is “request to book”.  See below for more details.

This location is about 1 1/2 hours north of Steamboat on dirt roads through the national forest. It’s very remote and exceptionally beautiful. Fly fish nearly 5 miles of the Little Snake River at the base of many large foothills. As you fish for famous Snake River Cutthroats, you will hear the calls of sandhill cranes, eagles, waterfowl and elk. There are 3-4 more miles of Battle Creek running throughout the property as well. You won’t run out of water to explore! There’s lots of walking to be done but river access isn’t a problem for younger anglers and people with mobility issues.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This property straddles the Colorado and Wyoming state line. We recommend buying fishing licenses for both states.

Although we typically get your booking approved within a few hours, please allow up to 1 business day for booking confirmations.

Due to livestock and other concerns, dogs and other pets are NOT permitted on this property.

Request to book: When you select your dates and hit the “book now” button you are sending in a request to book, please note this is not a confirmed booking. If it is available, we will accept your booking/payment and send a confirmation email. If it is not available, we will inform you via email.

  1. Don’t forget your local fishing license, you can grab one online.  Wyoming License. Colorado License.

Most of our properties are ranches, so expect to walk through hayfields, cow fields, or even hop a few fences. These are not "groomed" properties. They can be rugged and wild and we believe that is part of the adventure with RareWaters! If you have specific questions or concerns, please reach out in advance of booking a trip!

    Fished the Little Snake and Battle Creek properties on July 13 and 14. Little SnakeRiver was getting low and gin clear. Water was below 80 CFS. Had excellent luck in structure improvement pools but no action in or below natural shallow pools below riffles. Used hopper dropper rigs. Caught 50/50 on top of water and below surface on nymphs. I would like to try it again at higher water level. Land owner very helpful. No phone signal for at least 10 mile radius so forget about the GPS locations, need better signage for parking and boundaries.

    We had non-stop action all day long. Our start was delayed because we couldn’t find the RareWaters sign, but after looking at the map several times we were confident we found the Eastern parking lot. During our delay, we stumbled upon the Anderson Cemetery which was fascinating, along with the eagles! Fishing was not disappointing. We had action all day long on dries, nymphs and streamers. Even caught one on a orange scud trailing a streamer! The biggest of the day was an 18″ bow on a Grey Ugly fly. Lots of fun and probably the most serene place you will ever find.

Snake River and Battle Creek Remote Escape

Frequently asked questions.

What is RareWaters?

We provide affordable and easy access to private ranches for you to experience do-it-yourself (DIY) fly fishing experiences. No upfront membership fees are required. Just pay as you book! Pricing is listed at the top of each property's listing page. DIY fly fishing means anglers are responsible for determining weather, river flow and fishing conditions. When the information is available, we include weather and river flow information for the properties on our website.

What hours can I fish?

Each landowner sets their fishing hours, and most are sunrise to sunset. We have a few landowners who deviate from that timeframe. This information is listed on each property listing page.

Can a non-angling friend or relative join me?

At this time, everyone over the age of 12 must pay the full rod fee to be on RareWaters' property. This is to ensure that all anglers have the serenity, space and outdoor experience we are committed to providing.

Will I get the water all to myself?

We limit each property to a max number of anglers, typically no more than 3-4 anglers per mile. This is different for each property, so be sure to go to the property's listing page to find out what the maximum is for the property you want to book. For example, if you have 2 anglers in your group and the maximum number of anglers is 4, we may add 2 other anglers to the property that day, even if they are from another group. If you book all 4 (or more) rod spots that day, then your group will have the whole property to yourselves.

How do I know where to go after I book?

After we receive your payment, you will receive a booking confirmation email. Within 7 days of your reservation, you will receive a property map via email with GPS coordinates, directions, parking and camping information, etc. We strongly encourage all anglers to save GPS coordinates into their smartphones before leaving cell service. Many of our properties are remote working ranches with limited cell service. Google Maps is our preferred app for all angler directions.

What are your booking policies?

Great question. Here are a few policies you should know before you go:

Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations made ten (10) days or more before the booked date will receive a full refund. Cancellations made five (5) to ten (10) days before the booked date will receive a credit for future use. Cancellations made five (5) days or less before the booked date will receive no refund or credit. By submitting a booking request for any RareWaters' property, you agree to this cancellation policy. If you request to book a property within 10 days of the request date, and the booking is approved and you cancel the booking, you will receive a credit for future use. RareWaters is not responsible for weather, river flows or fishing conditions. Anglers are responsible for determining weather, river flows and fishing conditions. Refunds and credits will not be issued for weather, river flows or fishing conditions. The Cancellation Policy may be superseded by extenuating circumstances as deemed appropriate by RareWaters' staff.

Maximum Angler Policy:

Please note, if your party does not equate to the maximum angler amount for the property you've booked, you may encounter another angler or group. Maximum angler amounts are listed in the description for every property on the website. Please practice good fishing etiquette around other anglers by giving each other plenty of space and sharing different stretches of the watershed.

Leave No Trace Policy:

All anglers must adhere to RareWaters "Leave No Trace" policy. This policy requires all anglers to leave properties better off than they found them. If you see trash, please pick it up and pack it out. We ask that you kindly be respectful of the land, any livestock, and the watershed so we can continue to offer fly fishing access for years to come. Trespassing will not be tolerated and all violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. By submitting a booking request through the RareWaters website, you agree to this Leave No Trace Policy.

Solicitation Policy:

Under no circumstances may an angler or their guest solicit RareWaters' landowners for any reason. During your trip, anglers and guests are not permitted to promote, sell or offer any kind of services or products to RareWaters' landowners. Additionally, anglers and their guests may not compete with RareWaters in any way while visiting RareWaters' properties. By submitting a booking request through the RareWaters website, you agree to this Solicitation Policy.
