GENERAL INFORMATION FOR TETON VALLEY LODGE - FLYFISHING IDAHO
On the grassy banks of the South Fork of the legendary Snake River there is a place where you can leave all the stresses and preoccupations of work and normal life behind. You can lose yourself on a pristine trout stream while a moose nibbles on the underwater flora in a backwater channel, his head submerged like an ostrich hiding in the sand. This place is called Teton Valley Lodge.
Teton Valley Lodge has been outfitting since 1919, longer than any other fly fishing lodge in the West. It has been a family operation for 91 years. No other flyfishing outfitter in the country can make this boast.
GUIDES AT TETON VALLEY LODGE - FLYFISHING IDAHO
Day after day, guests tell them, "We had the best guides of any fly fishing lodge we've ever seen." They are very proud of their guides and go to great lengths to ensure they are the most trained and experienced guides in the West.
These guys work hard all day every day. Knowing that fish feed on something every day of the year, the guides give the fish (and the guests) what they want every day. They don’t accept slow fly fishing.
Lodge guests are supplied with approximately 100 dozen trout-crushing flies each day. They have every conceivable pattern fish could want. You don’t have to bring any of your own flies or buy an assortment of flies, which may or may not work, every day before going out on the river.
Each day you'll flyfish the number one dry fly river in the world, the South fork of the Snake. Followed by some of the finest spring creek and canyon fishing on the Teton River and the world famous Henry’s Fork of the Snake, just north of the lodge. These are the “Golden Three” of fly fishing in the West. They offer the most diverse fly fishing available anywhere in the world. You'll have dry fly fishing from May 25th right on through the rest of the season when they close October 12th. No one offers consistent dry fly fishing like this for so long a season. From the Salmon Fly hatch and clear May waters, to the cast and blast of October, Teton Valley Lodge is one great fly fishing destination.FISHING SEASON AT TETON VALLEY LODGE - FLYFISHING IDAHO
In May, you'll likely find caddis to be the bugs of choice. As we roll into June, Pale Morning Duns and Blue Winged Olives will hatch providing nutritious snacks for hungry rainbow trout and huge brown trout. Just watch out for higher water levels in June as the annual snow melt causes "ice out" conditions that make dry flyfishing tough. However, this is not as much of a problem on the South Fork as the giant brown trout will be hugging the banks and are susceptible to huge streamer patterns. All the bugs are in full force in July and with August comes hopper time! Huge dry flies imitating hoppers work wonders on these fish. In September the browns begin to get even more aggressive and territorial as they approach the spawning season. September and October can be RIDICULOUS for giant brown trout.ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AT TETON VALLEY LODGE - FLYFISHING IDAHO
While there is the typical wildlife viewing along the river and the photo opps that come with it, this is a lodge dedicated to flyfishing. Don't plan on taking a day to go shopping, or sit by a pool. If you want that kind of trip, go to the Yucatan or Costa Rica! If you must take a day off from fishing (yikes) they do have horseback trail rides that can be enjoyed with advance notice.

NEW POLICY – TVL is no longer accepting gratuities for the guides. All guests should bring CASH to tip their guides at the end of the day (TVL will not have change on hand for this). The standard gratuity in this area for a day of guided fly fishing is $100.00 per two fishermen. That is $50.00 from each fisherman per day. Because our guides work harder and longer than any guides we know, you may wish to tip more.
The IRS prohibits the lodge from being involved in guide trip gratuities. However, we will still be collecting gratuities for cooks and waitresses. We suggest $40-$60 per day per two fishermen. The actual amount of gratuities you choose to give is strictly personal.
