Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report 2.13.11

Jackson Hole never ceases to amaze me!  This week we had great powder skiing on the hill and this weekend warmed up and has been great for fly fishing on the Snake River.  Temps reached 40 degrees this afternoon, so at 1:30 pm I snowshoed out to the river to see if the cutthroat were active.  I didn’t see any rising fish, but did get a few to eat some nymphs fished about 8′ deep.  The best flies were a #18 Blood Red Midge Larva and a #20 Black Zebra Midge.  The sunset on the way out was gorgeous!

  Currently the snowpack for the Snake River basin is at 109%, which is down slightly from the beginning of the year.  Typically our wettest months of the year are April and May, so we are still looking good for water flows this summer.  We are booking trips for the 2011 summer season and it looks to be a busy one!
