Snake River Description

Welcome to Jackson, WY, home to some of the finest dry fly fishing the world. The Snake River and its tributaries are some of the last places in the world that one can find Snake River Finespotted Cutthroat Trout, one of the 14 subspecies of Cutthroat Trout.

Techniques & Tips

The best section to fish during run off is from Jackson Lake Dam to Pacific Creek. Anglers can find lake trout in the dam discharge pools. Small dry fly fishing and nymphing can be productive in other areas.
