This prime thirty mile section extends through 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 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 Salt, 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.

Salt River Fishing Report – (10.8.19)
Fall continues its firm grasp on the Star Valley area of Wyoming. The Salt is clear and stable; conditions are great. Look for dry dropper fishing to continue to hold on strong with golden imitations, chernobyls and hoppers when the weather is sunny and hot. Baetis are around during the cool cloudy days and will increase in importance as fall progresses. Anglers looking for large brown trout coming out of Palisades Reservoir should be ready to get down and dirty with streamers and nymphs.
