Day One!

We are happy to pick you up at your place of lodging anywhere in Jackson or Teton Village for your full day fishing trip, and generally we will head straight to the river, making a stop for fishing licensed on the way if need be.  Please follow this link to purchase a fishing license online before the trip.  https://gf.state.wy.us/elso/elsowelcome.aspx 

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 Fine Spotted Snake River Cutthroat is the name of the game, as they are happy to come to the surface for our dry fly patterns.  Cutthroat 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.  We generally will use 5 or 6 wt, 9 foot fly rods on the Snake river.

All of our full day trips are offered in a float fishing format, two anglers and guide per drift boat.  We do have the option of adding a third angler for an additional charge.  Our 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.

Our full day fishing float will travel about 13 miles on the Snake River, beginning at the Wilson Landing and taking out at Von Gontard’s landing.

Your guide will generally start the day with an on river casting and or skills review session if needed, and then we are off and fishing.  Anglers will fish as the boat drifts under direction of your guide, with some opportunities to get out of the boat and wade as well.  We will break up the day with a fresh picnic lunch stream-side, and then back to the water.

Our day will wrap up in the early evening hours, usually back to your lodging by six or so.  We practice catch and release so plan on bringing back some great photos and unforgettable memories.
