Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for November 16th, 2019

Snake River Midges are everywhere at the moment and some days emergences can be solid from around 10am until mid-afternoon. BWOs are emerging squarely in the afternoon hours, but are not near as strong as what we are seeing with midges. Surface action has been sporatic but when it does happen it is after 11:30pm. Target riffles, seams, ledge rock pools, and submerged structure. Nymphing has been the most consistent approach for getting into numbers.…

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for November 2nd, 2019

Snake River Midges have been out in force on most reaches just about every day from the 11am to 3pm.

This is especially the case on the lower reaches from Wilson Bridge down to Sheep Gulch. Top water activity is fleeting in the morning hours, although those who wish to be…

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for October 2nd, 2019

Snake River Flows have ramped down from Jackson Lake Dam and we are at a sustained release of 550cfs for the immediate future. During the ramp down, there was decent to downright good action on dries, nymphs, and streamers on those days with cloud cover and precipitation. At the current levels (and flows will be slowly receding with tributary recession throughout the next couple of months), the best plan of action is to fish small…
