Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report 4.3.11

Man, has the fishing been good on the Snake River lately!  Spring really showed up the past 4 days with temperatures reaching in to the 50’s!  Lots of bugs were hatching, Midges, BWO’s, Caddis, Capnia Stoneflies, and even a few Skwalla Stoneflies.  Cutthroat were eating off the surface with regularity and between rising took nymphs readily. Best flies were #16-18 Black Copper Johns, #18-20 Zebra Midge, #8-10 Rubberlegs, #16-20 Para Adams, #20 Zelon Midge, #16 Peacock Caddis. Wilson, South Park, and Astoria boat ramps are all open and the float is on!  It was great to be back in the boat and be one of the very few on the river.  We will be running driftboat fly fishing  trips on the Snake River through the month of April and into May, so give us a call at 307-690-1139 or email at [email protected].
