Jackson Hole fly fishing report 10.3.13

Fall is here!  Both fall weather and flow drops on the Snake River are making for some great fly fishing currently. Flows are being dropped out of Jackson Lake Dam over the two weeks this year.  This is good news for both our Cutthroat and the bugs that feed them as they  will have plenty of time to move to their new homes in the river. The Lower Snake is the place to be this time of year where the hatches are more prolific and the water deeper overall. We’ve been seeing solid Baetis and Mahogany hatches daily and there are a few October Caddis fluttering about as well.  Life cycle patterns for these bugs plus Zug Bugs/Prince nymphs have been picking up plenty of trout. It is true that Yellowstone and Grand Teton are closed currently, but we are still running fly fishing trips on the Snake River below Wilson and the fishing is fine!
