Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report 6/29/16

Dry fly season has finally hit us here on the Snake River in Jackson Hole, Wyoming!  Flows are at 4150 cfs at Moose and 5730 cfs in the canyon stretch above Alpine.  It has been hot here in Jackson this past week, and all the snow is out of Rendezvous Bowl which means run off season has finally passed! These flows make for a perfect day of dry fly fishing a long the bank.  Circus Peanuts, and Purple Chubbys have been working very well.  We are also starting to see more Yellow Sally’s, Green and Grey Drakes, and some Caddis.  We are at that special time of year on the Snake River where the Snake River Cutthroats are on a feeding frenzy!  Our guides are out on the Snake River every day and absolutely loving it! Wade fishing in the Wyoming Backcountry is getting better and better as the summer goes on!  For all the dry fly fishermen out there, the Wyoming backcountry is the place for you.  Small streams, rising Cutthroat, and dry flies are what you can expect when fishing in the backcountry. If you are fly fisherman who enjoys being out on the water with no other fisherman around, the Wyoming backcountry should be on your list of places to fish.  Not seeing another angler all day is not uncommon for fly fishing in the backcountry!  Pack a lunch, and throw on your wet wading shoes, because it has been hot here in Jackson Hole and the backcountry is a great place to get your feet wet and hook into some nice Snake River Cutthroats! Golden Stones, Green/Grey Drakes, Caddis and PMD’s are a must in a fly box when traveling to the backcountry.  Keep an eye out for risers, you never know where a monster Cutthroat might be lurking!
