Rivers and Streams

Henry’s Fork

The Henry’s Fork has been long famed as one of the greatest fisheries in the world and it is a real treat to hear its waters gurgling by right out the back door of Mesa Falls Lodge.

South Fork of the Snake River

40 minutes to an hour and a half away. Famous in its own right!

Madison River

Only an hour away in Montana.

Teton River

25 minutes to an hour away. Known for its difficult access, rattle snakes and big cutthroats. Get specialized advice before heading here.

Fall River

The best big river that no one knows about! 10 minutes away. Overshadowed by the Henry’s Fork. Access is difficult, but can be reached at all the bridges that cross it.

Warm River

Confluence with the Henry’s Fork 3 minutes upstream from the Lodge. Great smaller stream.

Robinson Creek

5 minutes away. Runs into Warm River just upstream from its confluence with the Henry’s Fork.

Buffalo River

30 minutes to the north. Highway 20 crosses it, and it runs into the Henry’s Fork just below Island Park Dam in Box Canyon. Good for smaller fish.

Bitch Creek

You’ll cross this beauty when driving from Ashton to Driggs. Fishing depends on the water year. 20 minutes away and aptly named for hiking and accessing!




Henry’s Lake

45 minutes away to the north. Trophy trout paradise. This place is a fish factory, and one of the best trout lakes in the world. Start at Staley Springs on the northwest side.

Island Park Reservoir

Like everything else, overshadowed by Henry’s Lake, but good in its own right. Head to the south fingers.

Ashton Reservoir

15 minutes away to the west. Great little secret, though a motorized boat is needed to effectively fish it.

Grassy Lake Reservoir

A little off the beaten path, but some big fish are caught every year. Take the Reclamation Road east out of Ashton. After a few miles the road turns to gravel, for more specific directions please contact us or stop in at a local outfitter.
