    Fly Fishing

    Some call it an art. Others, a way of life.


    The pursuit of trout brings anglers to some of the most beautiful destinations in nature, none more worthy than Jackson Hole.

    Floating the Snake River in a drift boat as it meanders past the Tetons or wading on the banks of a stream deep in Yellowstone National Park are spectacular experiences whether you catch any fish or not. However, your chances of experiencing some of the best fishing in the West are more than just good in Jackson Hole — they’re legendary.

    Home to some of the best trout fishing in the world, Jackson Hole offers access to renowned waterways like the Snake River and the Gros Ventre River. Both of these rivers are home to abundant populations of wild trout and a healthy natural population of the native species of cutthroat trout, the Snake River cutthroat. Also accessible from Jackson are renowned waters like the Henry’s Fork or New Fork of the Green River and the South Fork of the Snake. Local guides know each of these streams inside and out. The more waterways you explore, the better your chances of landing a Snake River fine-spotted cutthroat trout or a Snake River cutthroat trout.

    How to have a great fishing experience in Jackson Hole

    Prep Your Gear

    If you plan to use any personal gear while fishing in Jackson Hole — including a drift boat, trailer, waders, boots, clothing, or nets — prepare before you arrive. Doing so ensures you don’t unknowingly introduce invasive aquatic species like zebra mussels to the waterways.

    Go With a Guide

    Going with a guide is your best opportunity to have an excellent fishing experience. Fly fishing guides do so much more than guide you down the river and tie your flies; they’re experts who know the ins and outs of every eddy and riffle, and will help you understand more about the survival of wild trout, including our native trout species. They’re also intimately familiar with every waterway in the region and will be able to help select the best fishing location based on your skills, goals, ideal experience, and daily changing conditions.

    Familiarize Yourself With The Local Regulations

    Fishing on your own? Be sure to examine Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s regulations. These regulations include tackle and bait restrictions as well as special cutthroat trout length and possession limits.

    Questions about fly fishing in Jackson Hole

    Local Tip

    Handle Fish with Care

    Trout are a cold water species, adapted to living in cool mountain streams. High summer temperatures, especially from July to September, can raise the water temperature and lead trout to become stressed. Added to climate stress, the consequences of playing a trout on your line in the midday summer heat can be fatal for the fish. Go fishing early in the day and leave before noon, when the water becomes too warm. Keep fish healthy by landing your catch quickly and keeping your hands and the fish wet during the catch-and-release process.
