Tetons

Posted by on August 9, 2015

Yellowstone has an incredible amount of diversity and comes into season a few weeks before the Tetons, but the Tetons are definitely the bread winner when it comes to stunning beauty.  It’s like fishing in a photo mural of the West.  Many of the smaller streams are not in open season until 8/01 but I found plenty of water in season in mid-July.11698670_10204503679417749_2012071394213951292_n

The highlight for me was a well known world class lake fishery where 30″ trout are possible.  I don’t mind name dropping Jackson Lake here and I think any fly rod angler that has a day or two to spare in the area should make the drive to Colter Bay, rent a craft, and soak in some amazing beauty and lay into some big trout.  The shallower bays with structure and tall grass beds with hundreds of baitfish gathered near the beds was the ticket.

The Gros Ventre is a great area to see moose in the Tetons. This was an accident!!!

To finish the trip my new fiance and I stayed near the headwaters of the Snake River.  Again, add this to your list.  Above the Jackson Lake Reservoir the River is much less intimidating and you can even find the odd place to cross.  Skating crane flies and having Snake River Cutts crash them was just sublime.  All of the Tetons were.
