Jackson Hole Fishing Report: April 17th, 2014

Snake River Update:

With the recent run of two to three nights with temps in the 20′s the flows have been trending down on Snake and its tributaries. As the river levels dropped, the main stem, along with most of its feeders have cleared significantly, especially the drainages feeding the Snake River south of Jackson. While the river was not muddy by any means the dry flySpring Cuttie 2014 fishing was certainly curtailed. Even though the water was tinted, the fishing was still excellent. Continue reading

Snake River Fishing Report: April 11, 2014

The Snake continues to be low and clear and with fishing reports coming in somewhere between “great” and “the best day ever.” Some folks that cross the Snake on a daily basis reported that the river was “greening” a little as this week’s temperatures were rather balmy for this time of year. The low temperatures in the 30’s during the last couple of nights are mostly to blame for the coloring of the water. Continue reading

Spring Fishing Report 2014

Spring fishing in the Jackson area is in full swing right now with the Snake, South Fork, Henry’s Fork and even the Green River all fishing well. Although many of us have had enough of the snow and cold and are looking forward to the warmer days of Spring, it can also be a mixed blessing for the fishing. Warmer temperatures during the day feel great Continue reading

The good news on Yellowstone is that the Park’s rivers have been fishing very well since the park opened back up. The bad news is that the park closes to fishing this year on November 3. Jackson Lake has a strong run of browns that have been heading north for a while now. You can find them at the confluence of the Snake and Lewis river’s. The Lewis River channel has been producing for a while now. Heading north, you can fish Continue reading

Snake River 10/15/13

Posted by on October 15th, 2013 in Fishing Reports, Local Fishing, Snake River

The Snake River is fishing very well. The afternoon hours have seen us enjoy great hatches this past week, with excellent dry-fly fishing. Casual start times are the norm for us on the Snake currently. The majority of the action has been occuring from 12-5p.m. We are enjoying stable water conditions with the river reaching it’s minimum winter flow of 280 cfs from the dam on October 11th. Sunday, our guide boats all reported great dry Continue reading

Green River 10-8-13

The Green is fishing well currently. The Browns are displaying their fall colors and bad attitudes. There are some nice Rainbows hitting the net right now too. The slower runs with depth are holding the fish. Swinging and or stripping streamers is the method for the bigger fish. There has been some very good dry fly fishing during the heat of the day for Continue reading

Sorry folks, Park’s closed. Hopefully the fishermen in congress can pull some rank with their non fisherman colleagues, and get the Park open. Continue reading

Snake River 10/5/13

Posted by on October 5th, 2013 in Fishing Reports, Local Fishing, Snake River

What a beautiful time to be on the water. The fall colors are going off, and there is snow in the mountains surrounding Jackson Hole. Add to that some solid fishing and it’s easy to see why so many fisherman consider this the best time of year to be on the Snake. We’ve had a cold past week, but the temperatures are set to rebound to the upper 50′s, low 60′s this week. After a summer of extremely High Flows, the Snake River is on the drop. From September 30-October 11, the river will be dropping steadily daily as we Continue reading

Snake River Fishing Report 9/19/13

Posted by on September 19th, 2013 in Fishing Reports, Local Fishing, Snake River

It has been a season to remember here in Snake River Country. I can’t recall a season in recent memory where the Snake has run full-throttle through September. The weather has been unseasonably wet here lately too, with monsoonal moisture coming in from the south. As I write this the Snake is blown out due to heavy precipitation two days ago. On a positive note, we finally received our first below freezing night of the season. It’s been late in coming, but it signals the start to some lights out fall fishing here in our area. Continue reading

Snake River 9/6/13

Posted by on September 6th, 2013 in Fishing Reports, Local Fishing, Snake River

Although we are still running high water conditions here on the Snake, the fishing continues to impress. Lots of smiling anglers coming through the shop who have enjoyed great days on the Snake as of late. Stonefly and mayfly patterns are providing the majority of the action for us. The last week or so the Mayfly fishing has been very good, with Mahogany Dun patterns taking a lot of fish. There are still some PMD’s out as well although they are Continue reading
