Little Snake River
The Little Snake River begins in the mountains northwest of Steamboat Springs and flows along the Wyoming / Colorado border before joining the famous Yampa river. This very productive tributary holds many Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout. The owner of Three Forks Ranch has put a major effort into improving the river by building habitat for fish and reinforcing the banks with rocks to prevent erosion. His efforts have rewarded anglers with trophy fish, many of them over 25 inches. The Three Forks section of this river is great for flyfisherman of all skill levels.
