Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report 1.10.11

It’s been awhile since our last Snake River fly fishing report, so we thought we’d catch you up.  The latter half of November was chilly and did produce some decent fishing days, especially in the afternoons with streamers.  Winter showed up in full force Thanksgiving week and slowed down the bite with below freezing temps and lots of snow.  There were a couple of days in mid December where temps reached 40 degrees and the fish were active once again.  Nymphing the #18 Red Copper John/Zebra Midge combo produced some nice cutthroat trout to 16″ on these days. The best fishing was south of the town of Jackson as it usually is during the winter months.    It’s been very snowy ever since and we are currently sitting at 116% of water content in our snowpack!  This bodes well for both bugs and fish this upcoming summer if this La Nina pattern continues.  We are looking forward to (read daydreaming about) this summer’s fishing!  We are currently booking guided fishing trips, so call now to reserve yours. Stay tuned to this blog for the latest on our fly fishing conditions.
