Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited Clean-up Day

June 11th, 2012

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

Hunting Bison in the Shadow of the Tetons

December 1st, 2011

Live Water Properties Broker, Matt MacMillan, grins as he poses with his prized buffalo. Jackson, Wyoming’s National Elk Refuge is one of the few places in the US where you can hunt free ranging wild bison. Matt pulled a special tag with limited permits this hunting season. The refuge suggests hunters pass a bison identification exam available online as a tool to help hunters differentiate between bulls and cows. A one to two-year-old bull and a mature cow are difficult to distinguish. To learn more about how you can go bison hunting in the shadow of the Tetons, click here.

A Saturday in September: Fishing on the Snake River

September 21st, 2011

By: Macye Maher
Today Beckett (5) and I went with Scott Smith and fished from the dam at Jackson Lake to Pacific Creek.  It was epic.  A chilly wind and powerful sunshine created a decadent fishing atmosphere.  Beckett caught three cutthroat on a dry fly, all of which just surprised Scott and me to no end.  The cast grew better and better.  The first cutty took on a skating fly and the other two we watched very visual trout “takes”, and when we told Beckett to set, he did urgently.  He fought them well, and afterwards gave thumbs up and a smile.  He is a patient and happy angler, loves the boat and went barefoot the whole day.

Legacy Spring Creek Ranch – Come Fishing With Us!

May 19th, 2011

Legacy Spring Creek Ranch  – Springfield, Idaho

This 671-acre ranch is arguably the finest waterfowl property in the entire state of Idaho. It is located 2.5 hours from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, 2 hours from Driggs, Idaho, and 2.5 hours from Salt Lake City. Legacy Spring Creek ranch has over 3 miles of spring creeks located next to the 56,000-acre American Falls Reservoir in Springfield, Idaho. This combination coupled with a productive agricultural component and with the ability to grow key food crops, creates the perfect storm for record numbers of ducks and geese. It is not uncommon to see thousands of mallards and Canada geese loafing on the spring-fed creek systems and grain fields. An array of both game and non-game birds frequent the ranch including Widgeon, Teal, Gadwall, Canvasback and diving ducks. The ranch harbors a robust wild pheasant population to keep any bird hunter occupied after a morning in the blind. For the angler, large trout in excess of 30” cruise these waterways and provide a size class of fish rarely seen in a wild system. The most prominent species are rainbow and cutt-bows, and massive brown trout have been caught on the property. This turnkey operation offers a 5-bedroom home, a garage/shop with gunroom and bird cleaning facilities, plus equipment necessary to enjoy the Legacy Spring Creek Ranch immediately.
