The South Fork Snake River originates in Yellowstone National Park and the basin encompasses all land draining into the river from the Idaho-Wyoming state line to the confluence with Henrys Fork. Water flow of the river is regulated by Palisades and Jackson Lake dams. Dry-land and irrigated agriculture is a predominant land use. The basin possesses many outstanding natural resource values. Outstanding scenery, a quality fishery, and wildlife values provide diverse recreational opportunities.
