Jackson Hole fly fishing – guides report 4.22.13

It’s Skwala time!!  I had a chance to float the Snake yesterday afternoon with fellow guide Josh Hanna and we had excellent fishing.  The weather was a mixed bag of sunshine, rain, and wind so we expected to be fishing streamers mostly and  possibly find a Baetis hatch. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our Cutthroat were looking up for #10-12 Skwala Stonefly imitations! The dry fly fishing was fantastic and numerous large Cutties ate this tasty morsel out of a variety of water types including riffles, banks, seams, and back eddies.  It was the best surface action I’ve seen yet this Spring and promises to continue, especially with warm temperatures forecasted to return at the end of the week…
