The Jackson Hole and Teton Valley area offer some great DIY wade fishing opportunities during the summer. Most tributaries are now clear and stable. Now is the time to put on a backpack and check out our backcountry options.
South Fork and Palisades Reservoir Tributaries: Open – look for Bear Creek and Pine Creek to be falling out of their prime fishing windows and Big Elk Creek and others to come into play. Dry Droppers will be productive as well as attractor dry flies, Small Goldens, Hoppers, PMDs and Caddis.
Jackson Hole/Snake River Tributaries: Settled out and fishing well. The Hoback, Gros Ventre, Greys and Buffalo Fork are all in prime fishing mode. Small attractor drys and dry dropper rigs will be king.
Teton River Tributaries: Open – Bitch Creek is clear and the fishing is great. Look for these tributaries to continue to fish well throughout August.
