Snake River fly-fishing, Grand Teton National Park, WY
Most anglers put the Snake on the bucket list, because fishing for native cutthroat trout is so exciting: Think big fish slamming flashy streamers and dry flies. But you can be a total greenhorn and still have a great time, because this is also one of the most scenic river trips in the Rockies. Even obsessive trout-hunters can’t help but set down their rod from time to time to let themselves be mesmerized by the contrast of steep-sided Tetons and flat, shimmering river water.
