Teton River Fly Fishing
Catch what you've been missing.
The Teton is more than just a river to us, it is part of everything we are. This is where everything started. Three generations ago, our great-grandfather started guiding anglers on the Teton River. Fly fishermen from all over the world have visited this one of a kind spring creek. They come for the dry fly fishing.
The lower and lower-lower narrows are best fished from a drift boat. They are somewhat mild compared to the middle and upper floats in terms of white water, but this is a very special part of the river. Teton Valley Lodge has a private access to launch on the lower narrows, which guarantees low fly fishing pressure and fresh fish.
Dry Fly Fishing
The hatches begin as soon as the water clears from run-off, generally near the end of June, and will continue through the month of October. The season begins with the most prolific hatch of the season, the Pale Morning Duns. PMD’s are a beautiful mayfly that will range in color from light yellow to pink, orange, and green. Fish will feed vigorously upon these mayflies for about a month. Along with the PMD’s, there are a plethora of stoneflies on the Teton.
The Native Cutthroat
The cutthroat is the most prevalent, in fact, the Teton has one of the strongest holds of native cutthroats found in the West. Every day on this stream gives its fisherman a chance at a fish of a lifetime. Because of these large fish, and the excitement they provoke, the lodge has a special contest just for the Upper Teton. The largest fish caught in this section will win a free 3 day trip for whoever catches it.
