TRIP DETAILS

This epic adventure begins and ends at Jackson Hole airport in Wyoming where our staff will be ready and waiting for you to arrive. Once on the ground you’ll be driven  across the Teton Pass, elevation: 2,570, into Idaho and the beginning of your 10 day adventure which includes eleven nights of luxurious mountain lodging, eight days of guided fly fishing, and two days exploring Yellowstone National Park.

The fishing is simply world-class with over a dozen rivers in the immediate vicinity, some boasting upwards of 7,000 trout per mile. So many fish, that even beginners will enjoy success and rapidly improve their skills. Most of the fishing is done from a drift boat but there are also many walk/wade options each day. Our staff can even run a separate beginner’s primer to get non fly-fishers get up to speed and ready to fish from a drift boat.

Nearby rivers include:

  • Teton River (closest river only 5 mins away)
  • Henry’s Fork of the Snake
  • South Fork of the Snake
  • Snake River
  • Green River
  • Warm River
  • Fall River
  • Bitch Creek
  • Salt River
  • Yellowstone National Park (dozens of rivers).


ACCOMMODATION

Simply put the lodging is exceptional in every way. Below is an example of one of the homes we rent. 5600 sq ft of solitude with a perfect picturesque view of the Tetons. Large gourmet kitchen and spacious great room. Sleeps 22 in beds. Every room has a view. There are 3 full baths master has steam shower & jetted tub, plus 2 half baths. Game room, theater room, sitting room, and laundry room. 3 fire places. Large deck, huge yard, patio w/hot tub and gas fire pit. Central to outdoor activities.
