Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for June 29th, 2015

Snake River

Things have really popped on the Snake. Pretty good earlier this past week but over the past several days (since the 23rd) it has turned on big time. The river is clearing fast with the Buffalo Fork and Hoback rivers receding and there are tons of bugs on the water. You cannot find a reach that is not producing in a solid fashion. Caddis dominate the scene, but there are LOTS of yellow sallies and PMDs and, on the upper river, the small golden stone are around quite a bit. Green drakes and Flavs are also on the […]

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for June 22nd, 2015

Snake River

Flows from Jackson Lake Dam have dropped to 2,400cfs and the tailwater reach down to the Osprey Channel is really fishing well. Yellow Sallies are appearing everywhere below Cattleman’s. Riffles are producing on the surface with everything from large attractors to minute emerger patterns. Nymphing is still the best way to go in most holding water types, but streamers are getting into fish in slower holding water, below Cattleman’s.

The rest of the Snake is clearing pretty quick. By the next report, we should have an update on how the river downstream of the Buffalo Fork is fishing.

Effective dry […]

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for June 15th, 2015

Snake River

Flows from Jackson Lake Dam have dropped from 4,500cfs to 3,500 cfs over the past week, greatly improving the dry fly fishing on the tailwater reach down to Pacific Creek. Callibaetis and gray drakes are the primary bugs on the water, with Chironomids and some caddis making appearances throughout most days. Eddies and seams are the most productive water to target with dry flies and nymphs. Riffles are just starting to perk up with feeding trout. Submerged structure and banks are also producing with dry flies, streamers, and nymphs.

There is fishable water on the west bank of the […]

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for June 8th, 2015

Snake River

Still running at 4,500 cfs from Jackson Lake Dam. This is a great level for the tailwater reach from a fly fishing standpoint and it has just started to come into shape this past week. Good action on double nymph rigs in seams and eddies. Dry fly action is starting to come on strong with the best activity occurring from Cattlemans down to Pacific Creek. Trout are rising primarily to chironomid and callibaetis patterns. Larger attractor patterns can produce, but not enough to stick with it all day.

Streamers have come on strong in the past several days. They […]
