Lower Teton Canyon/Lower Mesa Float Trips
The section of Henry's Fork river downstream of Lower Mesa Falls is narrow and provides the thrill of rapids. These float trips require the use of a raft and are a perfect fit for the adventure angler. We slide our raft down a step hill into the Lower Mesa water, then float down the river.
Below Lower Mesa Falls, brown trout join the rainbow trout populations and add to the excitement of the riffles, rapids and pools from the Warm River confluence to Ashton, as well as the tailwater sections from Vernon downstream to St. Anthony.
*Base price includes 2 anglers for a Lower Mesa or Lower Teton Canyon Trip.

Rules & Guidelines
We highly recommend travel insurance to ensure that you are covered in case of unavoidable last-minute circumstances, such as a delayed flight.
In addition to the price of the trip, you will be responsible for purchasing your own fishing license (about $12.75/$14.00 for a non-resident daily), a small selection of flies (8-15) selected for use by the guide for the day, and a gratuity for the guide if you do so choose at the end of the day.
What to wear
The weather in greater Yellowstone ecosystem consists of dry summer heat with occasional rainy days. Even though it may look sunny in the morning, weather moves quickly out here and it is always important to bring raingear in case of the occasional summer shower passing through. We suggest wearing shoes which you don’t mind getting wet (i.e. sandals, old sneakers, Crocs etc. ) as there will be times when you may need to get your feet wet getting in and out of the boat. Additionally, there will be times in the summer where wet wading, in water no deeper than mid calf, will be the best way to put both anglers on fish and it would be smart to have shoes which you don’t mind getting wet. The water temperatures in the summer are cool, but not too cold on the feet.
A hat and sunscreen are necessary for protection from the bright sun and the reflection off the water.
Sunglasses are an important piece of safety gear for protecting your eyes from swinging flies. Polarized glasses are the best choice as they cut down on the glare coming off the water and can help you spot fish.
In the late spring and early fall months, it is advisable to bring along a sweater and jacket for the cooler mornings and evenings. Also in these months it is advisable to bring waders for wading and for getting in and out of the boat.
