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.

Clear and Cold – Salt River Fishing Report
January 31, 2020
Salt River Fishing Report – (1.31.20)
Winter continues its firm grasp on the Star Valley area of Wyoming. The Salt is clear and low and cold. Look for prime fishing opportunities to occur during the warmest parts of the day. Look for Midges to make up the vast majority of the hatches for the winter months. While the Salt can offer some good winter fishing opportunities, more consistent fishing can usually be found on the South Fork, the Snake and Henry’s Fork.
