Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report 10.19.10

The Snake River in Jackson Hole is in its fall mode and is fishing well.  The cutthroat are podded up in slower riffles or the ends of long deep runs and are munching BWO’s, October Caddis, Midges and a variety of streamer patterns.  Often fish are in very shallow water on the edges of thes runs that warms up first after our cold mornings.  Be patient and watch rise forms to determine which fish are trout and which are whitefish.  We are having a beautiful Indian Summer still with high’s in the mid 60’s in the afternoons.  Dry fly fishing gets going just before noon and lasts until the sun hits the mountains about 6pm.  What a great time to be on the river!  Best Flies: #16-20 Para Adams, #12 Orange Stimmi, #10 Melon Belly, #18-20 Griffith’s Gnat, #18-20 Zebra Midge, #18-20 BWO Micro Mayfly, #6 Olive Monkey, #4 Olive/White Clouser, #6 Black Leech
