Fly Fishing Rivers in Jackson Hole & Grand Teton NP
At Grand Fishing Adventures, we can get you in a drift boat on The Snake River, through the Grand Teton National Park and Alpine Canyon, The Green River, The Salt River, and local Spring Creeks in the valley. Find a description of these rivers below.
The Snake River
The Snake is our local river that runs right through the center of the Grand Teton National Park and the town of Jackson. We offer both full and half-day float trips on many stretches of The Snake. On all of these sections, we primarily catch fine spotted Snake River cutthroat trout. These gorgeous fish are abundant, native to our region, and are commonly caught on dry flies. Our shop has access to guide over 60 miles of water on The Snake River, from the Grand Teton National Park to the whitewater section in the Alpine Canyon. We can choose a section to best suit the type of fly fishing trip you are looking for.
The Green River
The Green River is another world famous stretch of water, known for its gorgeous views and the potential to catch the trout of a lifetime. This river primarily has Browns, Rainbows, as well as Cutthroat trout. At just an hour drive from Jackson, The Green often fishes the best in early summer. This can be a great option for a day of fishing when The Snake is too high to fish due to early spring snow melt.
The Salt River
The Salt is a smaller river that runs through Star Valley, southwest of Jackson. It is a beautiful stream with a good population of fine-spotted cutthroat and brown trout, as well as the occasional brookie and rainbow. The Salt can be a great option for the early season, as it clears earlier than the other rivers in the area. It also sees a number of large brown trout moving upstream from Palisades Reservoir in the fall, a great time to catch a trophy brown.
Spring Creek Wade Fishing
Grand Fishing Adventures has sole access to the spring creeks on Snake River Ranch, some of the best fishing in the Jackson Hole region. Fish Creek and Lake Creek run along the base of the Teton Mountains, winding through open-range cattle pastures. Our access to this private water allows us to minimize the amount of fishing pressure on these creeks, and ensures you will have water all to yourself. Fish Creek is home to many large, native Cutthroat Trout. Come fish this water and witness some amazing fishing!
