Jackson Hole & Yellowstone Backcountry Fly Fishing

Looking for a destination where your cell phone doesn’t work? Our Jackson Hole Backcountry fly fishing trip will take you there!
Imagine fly fishing a small stream that might see a dozen anglers per season and fishing only dry flies to rising native cutthroat trout. This is what it’s like to fish one of the streams in our backcountry program.

This fly fishing trip is great for all fly fishing skill levels from novice/beginner fishermen looking to learn fly fishing to the experienced angler looking to get away from it all.

Our guides are Wyoming backcountry experts and know how to avoid other anglers. Check our blog for the latest reports and conditions.

About Backcountry Fly Fishing In Wyoming

We have access to over 50 miles of water spread out over eight different creeks, which are approximately an hour’s drive from downtown Jackson. Some are easy walk ups and some require 1-2 miles hiking one way with minimal elevation gain.

The typical day consists of meeting your fishing guide at 7am and driving to the backountry creek. From there you will hike into one of these remote fishing spots to fish for the day. Hiking is all above 7000 feet in elevation and is tailored to your ability. Please let us know of any physical limitations.
