Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Guide Report 10.29.12

The recent wintry weather has intensified the surface action on the Snake River as our Cutthroat fatten up for winter. Midge and BWO hatches are occurring daily after 1pm, but may not begin until 2pm on colder days.  Riffles and flats are the best places to find this action, so take your time on these.  Bank structure does hold a few nice trout, but not as many as the riffles.  I prefer to focus on these and maybe throw a streamer between them.  Water temperatures dropped enough to slow the streamer bite some, but this should pick up the next few days as air temps are forecasted to be in the mid 50’s. Best Flies: #18-20 BWO Film Critic, #18-20 Para Adams, #18-20 Zelon Midge, #10-12 JB’s Rocktober Caddis, #6 Olive Morrish Sculpin, #6 Black Leech, #6 Gray/White Double Bunny, #6 JJ’s Special
