Fly Fishing Jackson Hole – Guides report 3.29.13

Wow, the fly fishing on the Snake River is on fire right now!  We are seeing large pods of trout rising daily between 10am-3pm.  Our larger Midge species is showing, as are Little Black Stones, and a few Blue-Winged Olives.  It’s still early for Skwala and Brown Stoneflies, but the way this Spring is shaping up, we should see a significant hatch through the month of April. Best Flies: #12-18 Zebra Midge red/black/brown, #16-18 Furimsky’s BDE Black/Green, #12-16 PT’s, #16 Black PMX, #14-16 Ice Cream Cone

Jackson Hole fly fishing – guide report 3.15.13

Fly fishing season is officially here!!  We’ve had a warm spell this week with temperatures reaching the mid-50’s.  Alot of snow has melted out on the valley floor and new boat access is opening up daily. We’ve run a handful of guided fishing trips on the Snake River with great success. Our Cutthroat are still looking for Midges mostly, especially when they are feeding on the surface. This week was the first time I’ve seen adult Little Black Stoneflies (Capnia) crawling on the snowbanks.  Water temperatures are getting into the low 40’s which is good for BWO’s to hatch as well. Look for these bugs where spring creeks join the Snake….

There are brown trout in the Snake River, and March is a good time to catch them on streamers

It’s warming up in Jackson Hole!  We are in the mid-30’s daily and air temps are forecasted to reach close to 50 degrees by the end of the week!! This has our Cutthroat feeding like mad on Midge and Little Black Stonefly nymphs.  Nymphing has been the name of the game for awhile now, but we’ve had a couple of days with solid dry fly and streamer action.  Our guided fishing trips on the Snake River this past week had great success with some beautiful trout caught. Look for this to improve daily as the month of March moves on…

Gorgeous March weather!
