I was recently reminded that the places we fish are as important as the fish we cast for.

I was tagged in a Facebook challenge on nature photography by my buddy Tim Romano.  (#challengeonnaturephotography) I don’t think of myself as a nature photographer, but once I started looking through photos the evidence built up quickly.

I floated the Snake River many years ago with a guide from Jackson. As we floated past the Tetons, I tucked my rod under my arm and grabbed the camera for a quick shot.

“Sightseeing trip’s a hell of a lot cheaper,” my guide groused from behind me. 

I feel sorry for that dude. I’ve never lived in Jackson, but I can’t picture myself growing tired of looking at those mountains. So, if you’ve been spending too much time staring at a bobber (or dry fly, let’s not start that again!) here a little reminder to look up once in a while.

Here are 8 photos of some beautiful places i’ve fished. Enjoy.

  1. Your correct, of course. Many times, during June, I sit on Hebgen Lake outside West Yellowstone, and gaze at the snow-covered Continental Divide just 15 miles away. Then a fish shows and it’s back to reality.

  2. There are no ugly rivers, though I would concede some are a lot prettier than others! My local much abused piece of heaven improves year on year, I have a photograph a friend managed to take a couple of months ago of a three foot salmon leaping up one of the upper river weirs. The last time that happened regularly the president of the USA was probably Andrew Jackson.

  4. Living in Bozeman, MT allows me to look at the mountains on a daily basis. After moving away for 6 months and coming back, I vowed to never take the views for granted ever again! Thanks for sharing, Louis.
