In May 2012, members and friends joined the Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited (JHTU) board in giving their time to clean up Flat Creek during the Town of Jackson’s Spring Clean Up.

It’s hard not to make friends when you are walking along your town stream and straining to find trash on the shores of Flat Creek. This stream project takes place once a year; the banks were relatively clean. The water ripples by, almost imperceptibly rising with spring run-off. However the current is ripe with foam, places where trout will break the surface for a dry fly come July. » More: Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited Clean-up Day

dsc_0170resizedLive Water Properties and the owners of the Twin Waters Fishing Retreat are proud to announce the completion of a recent conservation project on the ranch.  The 700 acres of wetlands that provide critical habitats for the area’s elk, deer, moose and waterfowl, have recently been placed under a Wetlands Reserve Program conservation easement.  This same protected riparian corridor is also the setting for the 3.2 miles of Blackfoot River frontage found on the ranch.  Both sides of this trophy fishery meander through the heart of the ranch providing excellent fishing opportunities for the area’s prized native species, the Yellowstone cutthroat trout.  » More: Conservation Project Recently Completed on Twin Waters Fishing Retreat – Henry, Idaho
