Snake River Angler Fly Fishing Report for February 19th, 2019

Snake River Variable weather over the past two week with some cooler days in the 20s and some warmer ones in the mid to high 30s. The warmer days have brought out the midges in consistent fashion from approximately noon until around 4pm.  Surface action is still best slow current channel with several feet of depth and at the seam edges where these channels joins main channel currents.  Nymphing is good in the same water…

2018 Year in Review

With 2019 just a couple of days away, this weekend seems as good of a time as any to reflect on how things were in Wydaho this past year.  For sure it was a solid year, but by no means was it great from a fly fishing standpoint.  We definitely had some fun fishing and there were several spectacular days.  Nonetheless, I would rate the fishing as good, not necessarily out-of -this-world.  Here are some thoughts…
