Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report 8.16.11

Snake River Fly fishing on the Snake River in Jackson Hole is on fire right now!  Our Cutthroat are fat and happy after a long runoff and are looking to the surface to get fed.  Stonefly attractors, PMD’s, Yellow Sallies, and Caddis are all producing at the moment, both wet and dry.  Fishing heats up around 10am and has been going strong through the afternoons and into the evenings.  If you are on the river early or late, strip some streamers and hunt for the big cutties.  All stretches of the Snake are fishing right now and seeing larger trout on top.  Give us a call to book a guided fly fishing trip on the Snake River! – 307-690-1139 Best Flies: #8-10 Chubby Chernobyl, #16 Yellow Stimulator, #14-16 Lime PMX, #16 PMD Cripples, #6 Black Leech, #6 Olive/White Silvey’s Sculpin

Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi loves to fish the Snake River!

Backcountry Creeks Wow, has fishing in the backcountry been fun lately!  The average size of Cutthroat seems to have increased on all of our streams, and these fish are happy.  We have seen some really nice fish to 18″ on our recent trips.  A short hike will get you into the best fly fishing, and typically all we use are dry fly patterns.  These fish are less pressured than most others in the area, so 4x tippet is the norm. Check out  fly fishing the Wyoming backcountry and give us a call to book a trip! Best Flies: #12-14 Parachute Adams, #12-14 Yellow PMX, #14-16 Elk Hair Caddis, #10-12 Schroeder’s Parahopper
