GREAT RIVER! Right below dam caught tons of rainbows on a zebra midge pattern. Perfect place if you want to catch fish or to teach someone to fish.
I visited the upper Jackson River in early march and the fishing was great! Despite the cold weather, the trout were biting.
Great place to fish. Great place to camp. If you don't want to camp at Hidden Creek Camp Grounds walk 30 feet to the right and stay primitively in the G. Washington National Forest right on the river. There are actual primitive campsites on the river that you can stay at or you can just stay on a small ridge over looking the river. In the field you can see mountains in a 360 degree around you. It is an amazing view that cannot be described properly. I recommend you go even if you don't like fishing.
