2023 in Review – Challenge and Change Stand Out

Overall another great season but 2023 did include a first-time occurrence that found our community on edge. In May '23, the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) indicated flows from the dam at Jackson Lake would be decreased to a "well below" minimal flow of 50 cfs. It had been well established that 250 cfs was the lowest flow possible to maintain the ecosystem that includes many native fish species and dozens of birds and mammals that rely on that portion of the river to be healthy. After a couple we...

Guide spotlight – John Macmurray

Our boy J'mac, as we later began to call him, was a great addition to our guide staff in 2022. John Macmurray, originally from Silverthorne, CO, has spent a couple winters (20'-21') in Jackson Hole as a snowboarder and began to see the charm of our valley right away and asserted himself well to score a guide position with GTFF. Instantly, I knew this guy was a passionate, young guide with a high ceiling. He has wisely created a free roaming lifestyle since his primary residence is his Sprin...

2022 Season Summary – Adaptation and Patience required

Well, it is officially the off season, hence I have some time to sit and write again about our favorite activity, fly fishing Western Wyoming! In this update, I want to not only thank everyone for another great season but also offer a summary into the nuances of our 2022 fishing season and perhaps, a slight forecast for the coming winter and early start to next year. This past season(Summer 22'), in my opinion, was our first year moving past Covid. The irregularities and chaos that was in 2...

GTFF Conservation WayPoints – Proper Catch and Release

I'll be completely honest. If it was not for Catch and Release practices really catching on in the last few decades, I don't think we would have much of a resource to share and/or business as a recreational fishing outfitter. I have lived through and witnessed the big shift to C&R in what I define as inland, closed-system fisheries. Our inland rivers, small streams and lakes are systems that are preferably, self sustaining populations of whatever gamefish resides in your region- trout, ...

It is not difficult to see, even with the untrained eye the remarkable beauty and significant wildlife that exists in the Headwaters region of the Snake River and Grand Teton National Park.

When an area is considered for Wild and Scenic designation as is the Snake River Headwaters, a list of primary cha...
