Fly Fishing In Jackson Hole & Surrounding Region

The 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.

Each trip includes transportation, rods and reels, and lunches. Fishing licenses ($14 per adult) and terminal tackle (approximately $25) are separate. A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking to hold the reservation.

The Snake 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 Mt. Moran looms over the autumnal splendor of Jackson HoleJune 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.

Green River
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.

Salt River
The Salt is a smaller river that flows through the pastoral Star Valley, 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.

Flat Creek
Flat 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.

Backcountry Creeks
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.

Deposit & Cancellation Policy
A 50% deposit is required to confirm your reservation. Deposits are refundable minus a charge of $50 if within 30 days prior to date of trip. Trips cancelled within 30 days of trip date will forfeit 50% of the trip cost unless that date can rebooked. Trip cancelled within 72 hours of trip date will forfeit 100% of trip cost unless that trip can be rebooked.
