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.

The Salt can continue to fish well through the winter season. Be on the lookout for midges, especially in areas where spring creeks dump into the river. More consistent winter fly fishing options can be found on the nearby Snake River, South Fork of the Snake River and Henry’s Fork.
