Teton River

Tributary of the Henrys Fork Snake River

  • Recommended Fishing Water

Teton River in Fremont, Madison and Teton Counties is 81.5 miles in length.

The Teton River drains the westslope of the Teton Range providing it with more rainfall than more watersheds in the region.   The river provides excellent fly fishing opportunities for all skill levels.

In this video, Tim Watters and his sons share the magic of fly fishing the Teton River in Idaho during the evening hours of a long summer day.
