Wild & Scenic Rivers and the Bridger-Teton

On March 30, 2009, passage of the Craig Thomas Snake Headwaters Legacy Act added all or segments of 13 rivers and streams in the Snake River Headwaters to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. The purpose of this designation is to protect the free-flowing condition, water quality, and ‘outstandingly remarkable’ ecologic, geologic, fisheries, scenic, recreation, and cultural values of the Headwaters for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Snake River Headwaters is unique in that it encompasses a connected watershed, rather than just one river or isolated rivers across a region. It includes 13 rivers and 25 separate river segments totaling 414 miles, with 315 miles of that within the Bridger-Teton National Forest.


Lakes and the Bridger-Teton

The Bridger Wilderness alone includes over 2,000 glacial carved lakes, ponds, and potholes. Over 500 of the lakes in the range are known to support fish. These lakes range in size from well over 400 acres to tiny tarns. Lakes are connected with over 550 miles of streams that meander through meadows and plummet through canyons and tallus slopes, before exiting the wilderness boundary. With over 600 miles of trails connecting the northern and southern ends of this wilderness, the area offers a diverse trout fishery, with the opportunity to catch cutthroat, rainbow, brook, brown, golden and lake trout.
