Snake River near Jackson?

Other than the Lunch Counter section, anyone know of any sections of the Snake in the Jackson area that are good day or overnight trips?

About an hour or so out of j hole into idaho there is a nice,mellow class II canyon run on the South Fork of the Snake. It's about ~10 miles below the Palisades dam with good camping spots for an overnighter .I remember it being about a 17 miles long. Not bad fly fishing either.

More rivers

On the other side of the Tetons within an hour to an hour and a half from Jackson you also have the following rivers that mainly flow early summer (with estimated rating):

Teton IV-V (near Teton, Idaho)
Bitch Creek IV (near Teton, Idaho)
Fall River III (near Ashton, ID)

Late summer the fishing on the Teton and Fall River is excellent.

There is also a short section of the Snake coming out of Yellowstone that can be fun and camping is near the take out. Locals may even tell you where Huckleberry hot springs are??? The put in is about a mile after you cross the Snake for the last time going into Yellowstone. Some refer to it as Flagg Canyon named after Flagg Ranch which I think is gone now???

Huckleberry - Polecat Hot Springs??

A beautiful series of hot springs pools located in a mountain meadow 2 miles south of Yellowstone National Park. Unfortunately, high radiation levels and the presence of potentially deadly amoebae in the water make soaking inadvisable. Upper and Lower Polecat springs are both situated on the north side of Polecat Creek, with fabulous views of a high mountain meadow stretching to the south toward Jackson Lake and the Grand Tetons. Lower Polecat Hot Springs consists of a couple of warm pools about 6 feet across, formed by makeshift dams across the warm water flowing from a hillside into Polecat Creek. Water temperature is around 105 degrees F. Upper Polecat Hot Springs, a short walk farther along Polecat Creek, consists of a series of seeps in a marshy area next to the creek. Temperature here is also around 105 degrees F. Primitive.

Thought I might throw this out there if you are recommending Hucklebeery hot springs...
