The Snake River in Jackson Hole has produced some nice trout this past week! This is due to daytime temperatures reaching in to the low 40’s as multiple storms passed through the area. This warmed up water temperatures and got our Cutthroat feeding! Nymphing with small Midge patterns was effective as was swinging small streamers through slower holding water just below riffles. We my be out of the woods on really cold temperatures for the season, so the fly fishing opportunities should only increase. Even better news is that these storms improved our Snowpack moisture content to 125% of normal! This bodes well for filling our reservoirs this Spring and for good flows this Summer. We still have a long way to go and storm systems in April and May often make the most difference, but this is encouraging!
