Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation recently took over managment of public access to the Snake River in Teton County.  The Snake River Management Plan that was adopted by the Teton County Board of County Commissioners outlines the department's role in regulating commercial use on the Snake River in Teton County.  Any commercial outfitter must apply for certfication and will be subject to regulations controlling the total number of commercial boats that are permitted to use this section of river.
