Fish Creek Fly Fishing Report 7.19.10

Fish Creek in the Jackson Hole valley is fly fishing very well!  The upper end of the creek between Wilson and Teton Village has seen many trophy cutthroat move into it and take up lies. Fish are not in every hole, so it is necessary to keep moving until you find them.  PMD hatches are getting started around 10am and fish will stack up into the best feeding lanes.  Imagine 8-10 Snake River Cutts 18-22″ feeding simaltaneously in one hole…. Golden Stones, Caddis, and Yellow Sallies keep the fish looking up after the PMD hatch ends around1:30pm.  Cast flies tight to the banks to get these wary cutthroat to eat!  Best Flies:#16-18 Lawson’s PMD Cripple, #16 CDC PMD Sparkle Dun, #16-18 Thorax PMD, #16-18 Elk Hair Caddis, #8 Water Walker Golden, #14-16 Yellow Stimmie
