Best Places to Fish in Jackson Hole
By Viator, July 2013
For year-round fishing head to Jackson Lake in Grand Tenton National Park. The lake is home to lake trout, cutthroat trout, brown trout, salmon and pike, and you can choose to fish from a boat or from shore. While June through September is the most popular time for the sport, January is when you’ll be able to ice fish, and is your best chance for reeling in big catch.
Fishing-enthusiasts also enjoy Gros Ventre River, a backcountry river filled with eight to 14-inch (20 to 36-centimeter) hungry cutthroat trout. While the river isn’t hard to get to the road isn’t right on the river, so you’ll need to do a bit of walking. It’s worth it, however, as fishing on Gros Ventre River is a truly serene experience where you won’t encounter many other people.
