When most people think of Grand Teton National Park , they think of the park's outstanding mountains. However, Grand Teton National Park is also a water rich park. Fishing variety and opportunities are second to none. In very few places can you fish for trout in pristine environments with such an amazing scenic backdrop.

Snake River: This majestic river offers fantastic fishing for cutthroat trout in an unrivaled scenic setting. The river opens to fishing April 1st to October 31st . Silver and copper colored barbless spinners should work for the spin fisherman, while wooly buggers, PMD's and bushy stimulators work well for the fly fisherman. The Snake is home to the native fine Spotted Snake River Cutthroat Trout.

Jackson Lake: This large lake offers trophy lake trout fishing as well as brook, cutthroat and brown trout. To fish for the lake trout, you really need a boat except for the spring, when the lake trout move shallow and feed on baitfish. Streamers, spinners and spoons should do the trick.

Jenny Lake: This jaw dropping lake sits right at the base of the Tetons. Few spots on our planet offer this kind of majesty. For a great day of scenic fishing and exploring, walk the lengthy shoreline and cast streamers from rocky points or sunken logs for large cutthroat.
