Jackson Hole fly fishing – guide report 2.17.13

It’s starting to feel a bit like Spring around here!  This is a little early and could change at a moments notice, but for now we’ll take it.  We’ve had some storms come through intermingled with warm days and air temperatures reaching 40 degrees. This has made for some good fly fishing! Midge nymphs are still the best bet, but some of our larger Stonefly nymphs are getting active too.  Combine this with the Little Black Stoneflies that getting ready to emerge in the next couple of weeks and our Cutthroat have options!! Our raft is ready and waiting to be used, so if you’re coming for a ski trip, give us a call if your legs need a break. Jackson Hole winter fly fishing is a possibility! At the moment, the Snake River basin is at 91% of average water content in our snowpack.  This isn’t too bad considering that March, April, and May are the wettest months of the year and typically determine how late runoff lasts. Currently, long range forecasts give us an equal chance for above or below average precipitation for these months. If the weather shows, expect the summer season on the Snake to begin in July.  Otherwise, we’ll be out there in June!
