About North Fork Club

The North Fork Club is a fly fishing club begun by resolute anglers in 1902. It is nestled on the banks of the famed Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, 25 miles southwest of West Yellowstone and an hour and a half from Jackson Hole. It sits on approximately 160 acres with over a mile of river front and is surrounded by national forest. The Club is owned by 25 members who frequent the Club with their family and friends from June through Labor Day. They visit to engage in fabled fly fishing on Henry’s Fork and other nearby blue-ribbon waters.

All members own their own cabins but congregate in the communal dining room, which is the central social focus of the club. Breakfast and dinner are served six days a week. Over the years our members have enjoyed excellent food and gracious, friendly, and meticulous service.

The Employee Experience

We're a collegial crew who enjoys spending time with one another. One day you might kayak the docile Henry’s Fork hoping to see moose, eagles, sandhill cranes and great blue heron. The next you might get a casting lesson from one of our skillful members. Or you might choose to take advantage of the many hiking opportunities in the Harriman Ranch and Centennial Mountains. There’s plenty to do in the great outdoors: boating, paddle boarding, swimming and, of course, fishing on the Henry’s Fork River and surrounding rivers, lakes and reservoirs. There’s also a  local golf course nearby. In the winter there are many excellent venues for both downhill and cross-country skiing as well as snowshoeing.

The Club website,, allows non-members to access the home page, which contains information and photographs relevant to prospective employees.

Employee Perks

Our members are happy to share their kayaks and canoes. You might be invited to join others on a moonlight paddle when the moon is full. There are endless opportunities for outdoor recreation for many levels.

Getting Here and Getting Around

The Club is located in a cabin community with no local transportation. We own a truck and tractor for Club business, but staff members will need their own vehicles to get around, go into town for supply runs or time off, or just to get offsite and into the mountains.
