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 – (1.22.19)
After a wonderful summer and fall season on the Salt, winter has its firm grasp on the Star Valley area of Wyoming. The Salt is low, clear and cold. There are some opportunities to fish the Salt, especially around areas where spring creeks flow into the river. Anglers should also look to the Henry’s Fork, South Fork of the Snake and Snake rivers for the most consistent winter fly fishing opportunities around Jackson, Wyoming.
