Summer time temperatures have lingered here in Jackson Hole until today.  We received alot of rain yesterday and overnight which has blown out the Snake River temporarily. We are expecting our first few frosts over the next few days, which will bring some changes to our fly fishing tactics…. The frosts will slow down the Terrestrial bite and bring on some more of our Fall Mayfly hatches.  We have still been seeing Tricos and PMD’s, but will now look for more Mahogany Duns, Hecubas, and BWO’s.  I was guiding on Fish Creek yesterday and saw my first October Caddis of the year as well. Our Snake River Cutthroat know that Winter isn’t too far off and will key in on these smaller bugs and try to fatten up.  Larger trout will begin to eat more Sculpins, so streamers should definitely be in your fly box! With each passing day we are getting closer to the drop to Winter flows on the Snake.  This will bring some insanely good dry fly fishing in October! We are also starting to think about Brown trout….


Still plenty of nice Cutthroat eating dry flies!
