Happy St. Patrick’s! It’s 60 degrees outside and has been very warm all this week!  Our valley snow cover is retreating quickly and there is green grass beginning to show in town. Kinda strange, but we’ll take it. Just hope it rains or snows again soon… That being said, the fishing has only gotten better in Jackson Hole since our last report.  Dry fly activity has become consistent during Midge hatches, 11am-3pm.  Look in riffle tailouts, slower side channels, and back eddies for noses.  Adult Early Black Stone patterns are taking some nice Cutthroat on top in these same spots. Stalking these trout is key as they are slow, clear water and will see you coming! Nymphing Skwala Stonefly nymph patterns has been very productive as well. Drop your big bug 6-7′ from your indicator and trail a Zebra Midge 18″ behind that. You’ll pick up some Whitefish as well with this rig. The tug is the drug! Best Flies: #10 Rubberlegs, #16-20 Red or Black Zebra Midge, #16-18 Furimsky’s BDE, #14-16 Winter Foam Stone, #6 JJ’s Special, #6 Woolhead Sculpins Feel free to call today to book your March Fly Fishing trip in Jackson Hole – 307-690-1139
