Southwest of Jackson Hole, the upper Snake River is excellent for wading or floating with over 75 miles to explore. There are plenty of deep pools and long riffles providing habitat for the local Snake River Finespot Cutthroat trout.

One of the best sections for fly fishing on the upper Snake River is north of Hoback up to Jackson Hole. The other popular section is about 10 miles southwest of Hoback where the river enters the remote canyon where there are both good shore access sites and backcountry river-accessed camping sites.

Overall, Upper Snake River is the 28th most popular fly fishing river of all 28 fly fishing spots in Wyoming.
