Description

If drift boat fishing is not your preference, then try a walk/wade trip in Wyoming or Idaho! We offer the local and destination travel angler everything they may need for a day on the water while fly fishing in the Jackson Hole region including the Henry’s Fork, South Fork of the Snake, Teton River, and Snake River.


Rivers

Choose from a selection of rivers but don't forget off-the-beaten-path tributaries and creeks are a prime option for walk wade fishing. If you would like to walk/wade our exclusive waters at Bitch Creek, check out our separate listing, "Bitch Creek and Badger Creek Wading Trip"


Snake River - Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) is one of the most famous and publicized fly fishing destinations in the Rocky Mountain West for a reason. It offers an extremely rare combination of qualities that are not replicated elsewhere: world famous dramatic and stunning landscapes, abundant wildlife viewing opportunities and lastly and most importantly, a practically unchanged native Cutthroat fishery that continues to thrive uninhibited by mankind. A day spent floating and fishing in GTNP can provide the most spectacular yet intimate western experience in our region, producing images that have been featured in movies and magazines while also creating memories that live vividly in the minds of anglers for decades. WorldCast Anglers could not be more excited to finally offer this experience as a concessionaire to provide guided fly fishing trips in GTNP starting in 2020!


The lower Snake River from Wilson bridge through the Snake River Canyon contains a plethora of fishable water. Commonly used for half day and full day trips, fly fishing the Snake River in the Jackson Hole region produces some of the highest numbers of fly caught trout during the WorldCast Anglers fishing season. For anglers looking to start their fly fishing careers this is the place to begin. Big gravel bars and eddies hold large numbers of cutthroat trout. Fly casters will have time to stop and cast to individual fish. With a very high concentration of bald eagles, the lower Snake is a spectacular place to fish.


South Fork of the Snake River - Idaho (Full Day Only)

Rated as the top cutthroat stream in the West, the South Fork of the Snake River is the product of more than a decade of special efforts by Idaho Fish and Game, local outfitters, and catch and release ethics. Its development into a first class fishery is proof of the effectiveness of special regulations to protect this beautiful, native trout of the Northern Rockies. The South Fork is a tailwater fishery that flows out of Palisades Dam on the border of Wyoming and Idaho.


The diversity of hatches, both aquatic and terrestrial, exceeds other rivers of the West, and gives the South Fork the reputation for the best dry fly fishing in the world. Wild populations of native Yellowstone Cutthroat and Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat provide scrappy dry fly action year-round. Fly fishing Idaho’s South Fork of the Snake River covers all angling appetites. Whether that be dry fly fishing, dry dropper setups, streamer fishing or nymphing.


Green River - Wyoming (Full Day Only)

A classic freestone river, wide open sagebrush fields and the glorious Wind River Mountains are just what are on the “surface” when spending a guided day on the Green River. Located south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Green River is a full day float trip option for those anglers looking for a fly fishing experience outside of the Jackson Hole area. Although the beauty of this landscape can, in itself, satisfy the most discriminating of outdoor enthusiasts, it is what lies below the surface of this world-class river that we are truly after. For fly fishing Wyoming’s Green River, the special charms are prolific mayfly and caddis hatches and eager wild trout, including the native Colorado River Cutthroat. There also is excellent nymphing and streamer fishing for very large rainbows and browns. Prime times for fishing the Green are typically June thru early August. The fishing later in September, as the evenings cool, can produce enormous hatches of caddis, bringing fish back to the surface, but the true sport is for the large browns beginning their fall spawn. Hopper dropper combinations and streamers produce some explosive fishing at that time of year.


Salt River - Wyoming

The prime thirty mile section takes anglers through the pastoral valleys between Afton and Alpine, Wyoming. The Salt holds a few rainbows and brook trout but the prime attractions are the Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat and brown trout in the 10-22 inch range. The Salt River offers great opportunities to catch trophy browns in the early and late part of the season as the fish move up from Palisades Reservoir. The beauty of the fly fishing Wyoming – Salt River, in addition to the surrounding mountains, is the early season fishing. Spring run off occurs sooner, and clears faster, than at other western Wyoming rivers. We have historically been able to access the Salt River by mid-May and utilize the river until some of the bigger rivers have cleared.


Henry’s Fork - Idaho (Full Day Only)

Known as the “Graduate School of Fly-Fishing for PH.D. Trout”, the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River is a true gem of western United States fly fishing. Attempting to catch one of the Railroad Ranch’s well-educated trout can be one of the most satisfying feats in an anglers life. However, there are more facets to the Henry’s Fork than the famous “Railroad Ranch”.


In fact, fly fishing Idaho’s Henry’s Fork River can present any type of water to any anglers. The river below Island Park Reservoir, know as the Box Canyon, provides non-stop tailwater fishing to jumbo rainbows in fast, boulder-churned pocket water. The Last Chance and Railroad Ranch areas offer some of the best sight casting to trout in the world. 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.

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.
