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.

Streamer Season- Salt River Fishing Report
October 5, 2020
Salt River Fishing Report – (10.5.20)
The Salt continues to fish well through the beginning of Fall. Terrestrials are making dry dropper fishing productive lately as it stays sunny and warm. Be on the lookout for Mahoganies and Baetis on cool overcast days. 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. Brown trout migrating out of Palisades Reservoir can make for some surprises while streamer fishing.
