Epic One-Day Adventures: Fly-Fishing the Snake River

On Friday, October 14, we will remind all of you of your God-given right to ditch out of work to raft, hike, learn how to surf, or take a motorcycle tour — basically to do any fun, outdoors thing you've been putting off. National Day of Adventure is a skip day for adults where we encourage you to take a single-day adventure that will turn your sick day into a sick! day.

Climbing the 13,775-foot Grand Teton might get all the glory, but fly-fishing Wyoming's Snake River is just as travel-worthy an adventure. The river is the one place to catch native fine-spotted cutthroat trout, the same way Lewis and Clark did 200 years ago. Because of this, the Snake attracts some of the best fly-fishing guides in the Rocky Mountain West.

For beginners, Jackson Hole Fly Fishing School is one of the best places to learn on the planet, and offers private water access on the Snake.

The Snake is also frequented by wildlife — you’re practically guaranteed to spot bison, elk, moose, beavers, otters, osprey, and bald eagles.
