Looking for a different winter outdoor activity? Bundle up and head out to Grand Teton National Park to go ice fishing! The most common and popular spots for winter anglers are Jenny Lake, Jackson Lake, and Phelps Lake. Jackson Lake is easily accessible, while getting to Jenny Lake and Phelps Lake require snowshoes or cross-country skis during winter.
Once you arrive at your chosen destination and find the perfect fishing spot for the day, you need to begin digging through the ice. Digging a hole requires an ice fishing auger, which can run anywhere from $30 for a hand powered auger to $500 for a gas powered auger. Each angler also needs fishing rods and reels, as well as tackle. Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair, snacks, and warm clothes to stay comfortable while you wait for fish to bite!
