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 – (8.8.20)
The Salt has dropped and cleared and is fishing well! PMDs, Caddis, Yellow Sallies and leftover Drakes are making for some fun dry fly fishing opportunities. Dry dropper fishing has been very productive lately. Similar to the Teton River and Green River, it pays big to be on the water early and before the traffic sets in. The Salt River can offer some great fishing opportunities for those looking to do something different than the Snake, South Fork or other major rivers.
