Fly Fishing Jackson Hole – Snake River

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.

Grand Teton National Park has a fascinating and layered history. Unlike it’s big brother to the north (Yellowstone National Park), it took decades to establish GTNP through a collaboration of government and private philanthropic efforts. Congress created the original park in 1929 to protect the Teton Range and several lakes at the foot of the mountains. In 1943, Franklin D. Roosevelt declared additional land in the valley to be Jackson Hole National Monument. In 1949, John D Rockefeller, Jr. donated the land he had been strategically purchasing for conservation purposes to the government to be included in the national park. Finally, in 1950 Congress combined the original park, the national monument and the Rockefeller lands to establish the present-day construct of Grand Teton National Park. Due to these fruitful efforts and forwarding thinking, GTNP has become one of the most visited and photographed natural monuments in the United States.
