Default Upper Teton River?

Was wondering if anyone here spends any time on the Teton River. Interested in floating the upper stretches this summer. I've always driven by on my way to the South Fork. Been doing some reading on it and with higher gas prices seems like I should make some shorter trips.
Would love to know about the put ins and length of stretches. Not really concerned with the narrows section. If I fish there I'll use a guide service and save my boat.

I don't know anything about it other that it flows pretty quickly, I'd be interested in floating it with you sometime if you want.
We could take our boat, older boats are made for rocky rivers.

From what I've read so far the upper stretches are slower meandering meadows. One description was that it's like the railroad ranch section of the Henry's Fork. The lower section is supposed to be treacherous through the canyon.

There are three bridges that give access on the upper stretch. The last one is Harrops and it is recommended that you not take a drift boat past there. If you want to fish the canyon stretch I'd check out World Cast. They lower a cataraft 1000 ft down into the canyon for one of there trips.

There is one access point above the bridges but it does not have boat launch so I'm guessing it is just for wade fishing access.

That's funny! I was just gonna post a link for them about that 1000 foot launch. I bet the Salmon Fly hatch is really good in the canyon.

Upper section sounds great, I really would like to fish it.

Hey guys,
I'm by no means have very much experience on the Teton but 8 years ago my buddies father rented a house just outside of Driggs so we loaded up my small redshank raft and headed down to hang out with his family for a few days. I don't recall the names of the bridges that we put in at or took out at but the fishing was a lot of fun. The river is a very slow meandering stream with lots of deep banks and we had a blast fishing it for three days. I don't really have a recollection of how good the bridge access points were for getting a trailer in or out but we did not have a problem with the small raft. We were there in Late June and we had a lot of fun fishing dry damsel patterns on a tight line with a twitch and skate presentation. I have vivid memories of searching around Driggs trying to find more dry damsel patterns because we only had a couple and lost them on the first day float. Fly selections were limited in driggs and we did not find anyone who had any damsel patterns so we ended up twitching chernobly ants and did pretty well on them as well. I have only fished this one time so I don't really know much else about the place. Good luck with giving it a try and maybe someday I will make it back down that way again.

Biggie

Thanks for the info. I found a map online with the bridges on it. From using Google Earth the put ins look pretty good. After we give it a go Fysh and I will post about it I'm sure.

You make it back out here give us a shout and we'll find some water to play on!!
