Jackson Hole fly fishing – guide report 3.15.13

Fly fishing season is officially here!!  We’ve had a warm spell this week with temperatures reaching the mid-50’s.  Alot of snow has melted out on the valley floor and new boat access is opening up daily. We’ve run a handful of guided fishing trips on the Snake River with great success. Our Cutthroat are still looking for Midges mostly, especially when they are feeding on the surface. This week was the first time I’ve seen adult Little Black Stoneflies (Capnia) crawling on the snowbanks.  Water temperatures are getting into the low 40’s which is good for BWO’s to hatch as well. Look for these bugs where spring creeks join the Snake….

There are brown trout in the Snake River, and March is a good time to catch them on streamers
