country of the Jackson Hole area is famous for its natural beauty
and the variety of fishing opportunities it has to offer. There
are large rivers that the angler can float fish and wade fish from
banks & gravel bars, and there are back country streams that see
little pressure and include hiking into gorgeous drainages.

River on the Wyoming side
offers miles of floatable
water with a number of accessible river sections stretching from
Grand Teton National Park
in the north to the Canyon of the Snake in the southern part of
Jackson Hole. Each section of the Snake has varied water types and
offers a unique angling experience. Some sections are braided with
smaller water wading opportunities, while others are larger main
channels that are best fished from the boat. This river fishes
well before runoff in March and April. Runoff usually ends the
latter part of
to the beginning of July when the fishing gets good again. August
through October are considered prime dry fly months. Daily guided
trips: $350 half day, $450 full day.
The Green is a more
intimate river running through fertile ranch lands and offers an
opportunity to land a monster brown or rainbow trout. This is also
home to the Colorado River Cutthroat, which is native to the Green
River drainage. These trips require an extra early start in order
to fish the best hatches, such as the Gray Drake hatch in
July. Caddis, yellow sallies, and golden stones are also present
July through August. The fall is a great time for BWO hatches and
also to throw streamers to aggressive brown trout in solitude.
$475 per boat, also available as a walk wade trip.
The Salt is a smaller
river that flows through the pastoral Star
south of Jackson
Hole. This intimate river starts fishing before others in the area
in June with Golden Stones and Yellow Sallies. Terrestrials and
caddis keep the fishing going through the summer. In the fall, the
Salt receives a run of large brown trout from Palisades Reservoir
and this is a great time to throw streamers for a fish of a
lifetime. $450 per boat.
Creek is located in the National Elk Refuge just outside of the
town of Jackson and is open to fishing from August 1 through
October 31. This fishery is known as a technical dry fly fishery
and is home to some very large fine spotted snake river cutthroat.
The angler must stalk these fish and be delicate and precise in
fly presentations. Hatches include caddis, PMD’s, and terrestrials
in August to Mahoganies and BWO’s in the fall. $350 for a half
day, $450 for full day.
We are happy to say we
have the best connections to guided backcountry fishing on Forest
Service land in the area. Our outfitter has exclusive access to
remote high mountain streams that don’t see many, if any,
fishermen in a season. They are long days that require an hour’s
drive and then some hiking before you fish. Fishing is on foot
with dry flies to rising native cutthroat. The scenery and
wildlife that you’ll see add to this trip of a lifetime. These
creeks fish well from mid-June through mid-September. $450 for one
angler, $595 for two anglers.
