Fishing Reports | Salt River

SaltReportThis 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 – (8.15.19)

Summer now has its firm grasp on the Star Valley area of Wyoming. The Salt is clear and stable; conditions look great. Look for dry dropper fishing to continue to hold on strong with golden imitations, chernobyls and hoppers. Caddis, PMDs and leftover Yellow Sallies will round out the mix. It really pays to be one of the first boats on the water on the Salt this time of year. Anglers looking to do something different than the Henry’s Fork, South Fork or Snake should look at the Salt.
