A valid Wyoming fishing license is required to fish on all public waters. Daily non-resident fishing licenses cost $14 and an annual non-resident license costs $102. For specifics on fishing licenes and regulations, please visit the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's website. Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks also have thier own special regulations and license fees. Any local fly-fishing shop in Jackson can help you locate and purchase the specific license you may need.
Gear and Tackle
Although daytime temperatures in the Jackson Hole Valley can be warm during the summer, wading Wyoming's glacier fed streams and rivers is best done with a good pair of fishing waders, or at least wading boots and gravel guard socks. A quality pair of polarized sunglasses, drinking water, chap-stick and sunscreen lotion are also vital for a fun, relaxing day of fishing.
Most trout anglers opt for 8-9' graphite fly rods rated at a 4, 5 or 6 line weight. Specific fly patterns vary based on time of year and what waters you are fishing. Your best bet is to contact a local guide or fly shop in Jackson once you have decided where and when you plan to fish.
