Snake River Angler Fishing Report July 28th, 2014

Snake River
Flows continue to recede and clarity continues to increase and the Snake is fishing very well. All reaches are producing but nothing is fishing as well as the Park sections from the Dam down to Moose and in the Forest from South Park down to Sheep Gulch. Streamer action is best from Pacific Creek down to Deadman’s Bar and from West Table down to Sheep Gulch. The primary hatches include PMDs, caddis, and yellow sallies. Emergences are not near as strong as they were the past month but this is not slowing down the […]

Snake River Angler Fishing Report July 21st, 2014

Snake River
The Buffalo Fork is receding fast and this has allowed the Snake to clear substantially over the past week. Fishing is still best from Jackson Lake Dam down to the Osprey Channel, but fishing on the surface has improved greatly from Pacific Creek down to Hoback Junction. It is still more productive with streamers and nymphs on these lower reaches, but it is worthwhile to fish on the surface in the afternoon with attractors and other patterns in the #8 to #10 range. Yellow sallies and PMDs are evident just about everywhere, but there is […]

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for July 14th, 2014

SNAKE RIVER
The only hold out tributary on the upper Snake that is still in runoff is the Buffalo Fork but she is receding fast and we should have mostly clear water in the coming week or so. The best fishing is from Jackson Lake Dam (flows at 2500 cfs currently) down to the tail of the Osprey Channel where the clear water mixes with the sediment from the Buffalo Fork. Nymphing is good but dry flies are better in many instances on this reach. In fact, you can probably fish dries all day long. Trout are rising to PMDs, […]

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for July 7th, 2014

SNAKE RIVER
Flows from Jackson Lake Dam have been ramped up to 2,500cfs but this has not impacted the much improved fishing on the Snake. The stream is clearing with receding tributaries and the fishing is starting to get really good. By no means is the Snake in shape, but fish can be had, especially on the lower reaches from Wilson Bridge down to Hoback Junction. Still, the entire river is offering some decent action on streamers, big attractors, smaller imitations, and, at times, nymphs. We have a good number of PMDs and yellow sallies, as well as some caddis […]

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for July 1st, 2014

SNAKE RIVER
Warm weather and warm rain has raised the flows on the Snake and the main culprit is the Buffalo Fork. At the time being the best fishing continues to be on the reach from Jackson Lake Dam down to the Osprey Channel approximately three miles below the Buffalo Fork, where the off color water finally takes hold. There are good hatches of PMDs, yellow sallies, caddis, gray drakes, and golden stones. Nymphs are the best way to go from the Dam down to just above Pacific Creek. Form there down to the Osprey Channel, the surface action has […]
