Jackson Hole Fly Fishing – Guide Report 11.21.12

Happy Thanksgiving!! A few of our fishing guides ran trips on the Snake River yesterday to good success.  Air temperatures reached in to the mid 40’s and it felt pretty warm.  The fishing was best from about 1-3pm on BWO, Midge, and medium-sized Stonefly nymphs.  There were a few fish rising with very subtle takes on Midge and Blue-wing cripples. Best action is just below where the riffle current settles out and there is some more depth for Cutthroat to hold for the winter. Long range forecasts are calling for warmer than average in early December.  Our boat ramps are still accessible since there has been some rain in the valley.  Check out our fall fly fishing special. Afternoon half day trips are best now….

Fly fishing Jackson Hole 11.11.12

We salute all the Veterans who have put everything on the line in defense of our country! Winter finally arrived here in the Hole this past Friday.  Weather prior to that was perfect for afternoon dry fly fishing! Highs in the mid 50’s produced solid Midge and BWO hatches and our Cutthroat were on them in the riffles and  flats at the end of runs.  Nymphing has been good with medium sized Stonefly nymphs about 6 feet down trailing Zebra Midges, Lightening Bugs, and Rainbow Warriors all in sizes #16-20. Streamers are still worth fishing, but slow your retrieve way down or just let the fly swing at the end of the drift… Late fall Snake RIver Cutthroat
