The Jackson Hole area is home to some of the best fly-fishing in the United States. Abundant tributaries wind through mountain valleys and culminate in the majestic Snake River—one of the most scenic rivers in the United States—and one of the best dry-fly fisheries. Several excellent spring creeks also wind their way throughout Jackson Hole providing excellent habitat for the native cutthroat trout that inhabit them.

In addition, Jackson Hole is a short drive from the South Fork of the Snake River, the Green River, the Henry’s Fork, the New Fork, the Yellowstone River and endless high mountain creeks and streams. U-boat Brown Trout, acrobatic Rainbows and aggressive Cutthroats abound. Whether you crave a secluded wade through untouched wilderness or an action packed float trip down a dramatic canyon, there is no comparison to the Jackson Hole options.
