Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for April 24th, 2017

It’s certainly not crystal clear, but it has improved from what it was a week and a half ago.  Without question, the best fishing has been in slower runs and current margins at the mid-section and tail of riffles, seams, and confluence lines with double nymph rigs.  Dry flies imitations of blue-winged olives and midges will work in the same water, but that action is far more spotty. Surface feedin […]
