Meet Westbank Anglers Fishing Guides – Fly fishing guides in Jackson Hole, WY

Meet Westbank Anglers Fishing Guides. Westbank Anglers is home to the most professional and experienced guide staff in the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Our staff is made up of 18 full time professional guides who have all been guiding at least 5 years.   Several of our guides have guided for Westbank Anglers for more than 23 years. They are on the water every day, either with clients or on their own and they know the rivers and are excited to have you in their office.

Westbank Anglers fishing guides fish the Snake River, permittee BTNF, Yellowstone National Park, the Green and New Fork Rivers, The South Fork of the Snake River in affiliation with Heise Expeditions, plus a variety of lakes and spring creeks in our area. We offer full and half-day float or wade trips for beginners and expert anglers alike. Our season begins in April, when we get a few weeks of prime fishing in before the river is affected by the snow runoff. Prime season is June – October. The summer months offer some of the most spectacular dry fly fishing in the lower 48, while September and October are the least crowded and best months to experience Jackson Hole’s fishing opportunities.
