Know More about this tour

You will be picked-up from your place of lodging anywhere in Jackson or Teton Village for your fishing trip. You will head straight to the river, making a stop for fishing licenses on the way if need be, or a fishing license can be acquired online prior to the trip.

The Snake River is a relatively high volume, very braided river flowing out of Yellowstone Park, through Grand Teton, and continuing south through the heart of Jackson Hole. The native Snake River fine-spotted cutthroat trout is the name of the game, as they are happy to come to the surface for dry fly patterns. Cutthroat trout are also quite willing to strike streamers and spin cast lures as well.

Your guide will provide all equipment necessary for the day - rods, reels, flies, leader, lures, etc. Please bring your favorite rod and reel if you like, and any other equipment as well. 5 or 6 wt, 9 foot fly rods are generally used on the Snake River.

All of these half day trips are offered in a float fishing format, two anglers and guide per drift-boat. There is an option of adding a third angler for an additional charge. The drift-boats are equipped with a casting station and captains chairs front and back, with the guide situated in the middle, allowing anglers to stand and fish, or sit and fish as the guide maneuvers the boat about 7 miles on the Snake River

Your guide will generally start the day with an on-river casting and or skills review session if needed, then it's off and fishing. Anglers will fish as the boat drifts under direction of your guide, with limited wading opportunities as time is limited.

The day will wrap in the early afternoon, usually back to your lodging by 1:30pm. Plan on a late lunch upon your return. The guides also practice catch-and-release so plan on taking some great photos and bringing back some unforgettable memories.
