19 Apr Say Hello to the Snake River this Summer
At 1,078 miles, the Snake River is the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean—and it all starts with the confluence of three streams in Wyoming. From here, it winds through Idaho, Oregon, and Washington before entering the Columbia. It’s lush, grand, and pristine. And you can enjoy your own lovely slice of it when you vacation at Jackson Hole.
Fishing the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park is sure to be one of the crowning moments in any fisherman’s life. Known for it’s incredible trout fishing, the park is also one of the few places to catch the elusive Fine Spotted Cutthroat Trout. And because Grand Teton National Park is an easy trip from your vacation rental in the charming town of Jackson Hole, young and old alike can have the fishing adventure they’re dreamed of here on renowned Snake River.
Nothing’s more thrilling than soaking up the Wyoming sun, crashing through white water rapids, or setting sights on local wildlife while on a float trip down the majestic Snake River in Jackson Hole. The serene waters and breathtaking terrain make for a stunning backdrop to this summer vacation adventure—one that your family is sure to love and remember for years to come.
