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

Snake River Flows from Jackson Lake Dam are at 4000cfs and the tailwater reach down to Pacific Creek remains the best place to fish with substantially more visibility that the rest of the river, although clarity is not 100% due to the lingering effects of turnover from the lake. Nymphing is still best from the spillway down to Cattleman’s with double rigs in the seven to nine foot range from line/suspension device down to the…

Double nymph rigs are working best on the section from the…

Don’t expect excellent surface action. Nonetheless,…

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for May 3rd, 2019

Snake River Runoff is underway on the Snake, although fluctuating high elevation air temperatures can bring on increased visibility from Pacific Creek down to Hoback. When this visibility is around three feet, there is opportunity for surface action on skwala patterns and large, articulated streamers.  This activity can last anywhere from two to four hours in the afternoon, typically from between noon and 3pm. The tailwater reach below Jackson Lake Dam offers the most consistent…
