Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for July 17th, 2020

Snake River Good to solid fishing on just about every reach as the Snake continues to gain more visibility each day with more than enough to offer decent dry fly fishing on the entire stream.  Not a lot of bruiser fish quite yet, but that should be coming in the next couple of weeks.  The most consistent action has been on the upper reaches from Jackson Lake Dam down to Moose followed by the lower…

Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for June 9th, 2020

Snake River Flows from Jackson Lake Dam are currently at around 4,500cfs.  The tailwater reach above Pacific Creek continues to have the best visibility.  Jackson Lake, however, is in turn over, so that visibility is far from crystal clear.  Nonetheless, there is still around three feet of clarity.  Don’t expect off-the-charts action, but there are fish to be had. Nymph rigs are performing best when fished along banks, seams, and eddies. Streamer fishing is debatably…
