Green River and New Fork River

Green River and New Fork River

March 1 - November 31, conditions permitting

The Green and New Fork Rivers are unique freestone rivers that originate from the Wind River Range. They feature winding bends, cut banks, loose gravel, and deep buckets–making for a spectacular floating experience through sagebrush fields with the towering Winds in the background. Despite being smaller rivers, they often produce some of the largest brown and rainbow trout in the western United States, as well as some native cutthroat. 

A trip to either of these rivers is suggested mostly for adventurous and intermediate to experienced anglers. Both the Green and New Fork usually clear well before the Snake, making them a great option for anyone with the itch to catch some trout in the Spring. These rivers offer great dry fly, streamer, and nymphing opportunities depending on the season. The Green and New Fork Rivers flow through a mix of National Forest land, Bureau of Land Management Parcels, and private ranch land. However, due to Wyoming's private land laws, most fishing on these rivers is performed out of a drift boat.

Renowned as a symbol of the region, the Snake River offers an exhilarating dry fly fishing experience. Within Jackson Hole Valley, the river showcases a diverse array of styles, from swift currents to expansive side channels, and even stretches of thrilling white water. Combining awe-inspiring scenic vistas with the unique thrill of angling for native trout, the Snake River delivers an unparalleled experience for fishing enthusiasts.
