Wyoming, United States
It sits about a hundred feet up the North side of the Upper Hoback Valley like a moose head above a fireplace. Down below, the Upper Hoback River carves its own way through the valley where bison graze and guard their calves from the wolves that are coming back to the land.
But it’s the big brother mountains–the Gros Ventre, Wind River, and Wyoming Ranges–that surround and protect this paradise like it’s their own secret anglers’ dream.

|Location:||The history of Little Jackson Hole. As an adventurous employee of a Missouri fur trading magnate, Jedediah Smith had an unfortunate encounter with a grizzly bear on his way to finding the mother lode of beaver trapping in what is now Wyoming. More than a few historic accounts give him credit as a pioneer in cosmetic surgery. After getting patched up, Smith led a small group of men who, in the frigid February of 1824, reached the Green River-indeed the mother lode of trapping at the time. He sent one of his men back to St. Louis to give their boss the good news then sent several more southwest from the Green, which led to the Bear River and later to Great Salt Lake. Smith took his remaining six men north, up the Green, to Horse Creek and eventually to the headwaters of the Hoback River. There they found a small Eden of a valley that came to be known as Jackson's Little Hole in deference to Jackson's Big Hole, the large enclosed valley to the northwest where the Hoback flows into the Snake River (now Jackson Hole). Interestingly, this arm of the Hoback connecting these two Holes was shown as Jackson's Fork on many 19th century maps. In spite of its idyllic beauty and abundant game, the lure of even better trapping led Jedediah and his men north to claim the larger Jackson's Hole and a valley to the west known as Pierre's Hole, which is now Teton Valley. Fortunately, it was that attraction to bigger and more abundant trapping areas that drew many more fur traders and settlers away from Jackson's Little Hole back then, as it still lures developers away today, leaving "Little Jackson Hole" as breathtakingly beautiful, serene and as rich in wildlife as it was centuries ago|
