Teton River Fly Fishing | Full Day

Lower Teton River
We are proud to be one of the few outfitters allowed to guide on this truly remarkable stretch of water. Our Teton River Trips consist of three sections.
The first is a true test of anglers physical and mental will to access big trout. The day starts by roping our fishing boats 1000 feet down a canyon wall. Waiting below is some exhilarating class IV rapids with giant voracious cutthroats and rainbows hiding among the turbulent waters. Mind you, this is not a trip for the out-of-shape or the faint-of-heart angler.
The second section is a long, twisting piece of water with intricate runs divided by short sections of white water, allowing our anglers to take their time and site cast to huge rising fish.
Our third and most popular section has produced some of the largest fish caught by WorldCast Angler’s clients. Twelve miles of pristine run and pool fishing, accessed by drift boats. This section introduces our anglers to intricate cliff walls, and deep lake sections, creating a day of fishing unlike any other in the west. Because of the limited space, our guides like to limit the amount of boats accessing these sections.
Upper Teton River
With the majestic Teton Mountains looming against the Valley’s eastern horizon, the Teton River is the most scenic trout stream in North America. Its trout match the picture-postcard memories of a day on this remarkable little river. Trophy sized Yellowstone Cutthroat and rainbow trout lurk in the meandering meadow stream of the upper basin. Located half way between the South Fork and Henry’s Fork, the Teton is an undiscovered gem often ignored by anglers heading to the more popular fisheries. On good days, the Teton River greatly outshines both of its stellar sister rivers by providing exceptional dry fly fishing.
The Teton River fishes best June to October, often producing the same quality hatches of the South Fork without the pressure of public anglers. The upper Teton reach is a magical 25-mile section, with only a few licensed outfitters able to guide its waters. Long, winding stretches of deep, cool trout water meander through the willow, sage and aspen laden Teton Valley. Early season fishing consists of magnificent mayfly hatches regularly overlapping with caddis, hoppers, stoneflies, baetis, callibaetis, tricos, green and gray drakes throughout the summer. The lazy water allows anglers to stop and present flies down stream or walk the banks positioning for more wary fish. This upper reach is best defined as a spring creek fishery and can be technical fishing. It is best to discuss your departure time with your guide the previous day to an excursion, early morning and late evening produce the greatest opportunities for anglers to catch big fish.

We primarily fish out of 3 person (2 anglers and 1 guide) row boat style driftboats. The boat fishes best with 1 or 2 anglers. We suggest only adding a third person when it is child as three adults pushes the weight limits of the boat and does not provide adequate fishing to all people present. The boats all have good amounts of dry storage for your valuables and rain gear during the trip. They are very stable fishing platforms and with the built in leg-locks, there is little chance of falling into the river.
*Base price is for 2 anglers.
For a third angler, select additional option at checkout.

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.
