Fly fishing Jackson Hole – Guide’s Report 4.8.13

JH fly fishing March 2013

Gotta love warm March weather!!

What a great few weeks!  Lots of sunshine and warm temperatures have made for excellent fly fishing on the Snake River.  The majority of our valley snowpack is now gone and there is good access at Moose, Wilson, South Park, Astoria and Elbow boat ramps. Game on! Our Cutthroat are loving it with good bug options – Midges, BWO’s, and small Black/Brown Stones.  Riffles, shallow seams and side channels are all holding rising trout daily from noon until dusk. Nymphing and throwing streamers are still good bets, especially in deeper, slow runs. Best flies: #14-18 Furimsky’s BDE, #14-16 Black Caddis, #16-18 Para Adams, #12-16 PT’s and Hare’s Ears, #14-16 Black AP Nymph, #6 Olive or Black Buggers
