Westbank Anglers Fishing Guides

 

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

Westbank Anglers is home to the most professional and experienced guide staff in the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. They hail from all over the country, each with their own combination of teaching techniques and personality. Several of our guides have fished with Westbank Anglers for more than 20 years. Our guides spend virtually every day of the season on the water, constantly honing their craft and always observant of any changes in the river and fishing conditions. 

We are fortunate to have access to some of the best fishing in the region. We are able to guide the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest (right through the heart of Jackson Hole), the South Fork of the Snake, the Green River, the New Fork, and a variety of spring creeks and lakes throughout the area. For a more complete description of our waters click here. We offer full and half-day float or wade trips for beginners and expert anglers alike.
