Rivers We Guide On:

The Snake River: Our Snake River fly fishing trips are a 13-mile scenic float from Wilson to South Park. This section is has many braids and allows guides to take channels that are small and wadable. The Snake River is the only river that is home to the Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat Trout. The Average fish is 12-14 inches, with a chance at fish in the 16-20 inch range.

The Green River: The Green River is a remote watershed near the Wind River Mountain Range. This river holds mostly German Brown and Rainbow trout. The average fish size is 14-18 inches and there will be chances at fish well over 20 inches while fly fishing the Green River. Imagine that family photo!

The Salt River:  A smaller river named after the salt beds that holds mostly Cutthroat and Brown trout. This river flows into the Palisades Reservoir which also holds water from the Snake in the Jackson area. The numerous bug hatches offer incredible opportunities for catching fish on the dry while fly fishing the Salt River in Wyoming.
