Upper Snake Region

This region is the western gateway to Yellowstone National Park and Teton National Parks. Consequently, the region hosts eight of Idaho’s eleven big game animals and diverse list of fish found in little known and famed waters, such as the Henrys Fork and South Fork of the Snake rivers. Bird hunters enjoy sharp-tailed grouse, sage-grouse, gray partridge, and plentiful waterfowl hunting.
