Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report 9.15.10

Snake River Now is the time to be fly fishing on the Snake River in Jackson Hole!  Cutthroat are looking up and eating off the surface in a variety of water types – riffles, seams, and along bank structure.  Our fall Drake hatch, Timpanoga Hecuba, is in full swing, along with Mahoganies, Flying Ants, Stoneflies, and Blue Winged Olive’s.  Check out the Drake photo below taken by fly fishing guide Tim Smith during a lunch break last week.  Cold nights have meant that early starts are not important.  It seems the earliest fish are eating off the surface is 10am and on some days it’s more like noon. The good news is that the action lasts until 6pm or later.   The streamer bite has picked up as well and are best early and late in the day. The Jackson Hole One Fly was a blast this past weekend!  Fish the Fly owner Jason Balogh and guide Tim Smith both guided on the Snake.  Hecuba Drake patterns produced the best along with some Stonefly patterns.  All the monies generated by this event go to funding stream conservation projects in the region.
