Fly Fishing the Salt River in Wyoming

High above the alpine of the Salt River Mountain Range, the Salt River seeps through the rocks of Mount Wagner. This is the beginning of it’s 84 mile long journey. This small, intimate river is one of Wyoming’s best kept secrets and fly fishing the Salt River in Wyoming is an unforgettable experience. 

Often visited by Native Americans and early pioneers for its exposed salt beds, this river was–and still is–not known only for salt, but also abundant game and fish. The Salt River riparian zone is home to Cutthroat, Brown and Rainbow Trout, as well as abundant wildlife.

Salt River fly fishing in the lower reaches boasts grassy banks and minimal trees, making it a great river for beginners to learn fly casting. Our Jackson Hole fly fishing guides will talk you through the whole process, from which bug is best for that time of day and year, to why the fish live in certain spots on the river. Then you will take a few minute for a casting lesson, learning how to maneuver the fly. Finally it is time to catch some fish!

The upper reaches of the Salt River require skill full casting under fallen trees and tight banks. Once your fly is in the right spot you are sure to see a large brown or cutthroat trout come out of hiding to eat! This section of the Salt River allows intermediate and advanced anglers to put their skills to the test.
