Fall is approaching us quickly here in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming!  Don’t be intimidated by the cool weather, as fall brings some of the best fly fishing Jackson has to offer!  The flows have been stable on the Snake River flowing at 3620 cfs at Moose, Wyoming. Early Autumn is a great time to get on the Snake! Cool mornings make for nice scenery and a better chance of seeing wildlife, and as the temperatures rise more and more bugs can be seen flying around and landing on the water!  Hecubas are starting to come out in force, especially on days with some cloud cover.  Mahogany Duns are also popping with the drop in water temperatures, while PMDs and Tricos can still be seen. Target riffles, bank structure, and seam lines where two currents come together.  Another great aspect of the Snake is all the side channels, so get out of the boat and get your feet wet!  Side channels of the Snake offer great structure fishing with small drys and can be the most rewarding adventure of the day.

The streamer bite is only going to get better and better as the mornings get cooler and cooler, cloud coverage with some precipitation is also a great time to throw on a streamer.  The Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat love the olive and white combo, maybe throw a cone head or a pair of eyes on there and you have a tasty meal for a big cutthroat.  Remember when fishing streamers you set the hook with a strip set rather than lifting your rod right away.  Give the fish a nice strip once you feel that bump on your line, then lift your rod once your line is tight.  Floating line with a nine foot leader is a good setup for streamer fly fishing on the Snake River.
