South Fork of the Snake fishing report – 6.13.13

The South Fork flows have leveled out at 12800 cfs and look to be right around there for the remainder of the summer.  The Bureau of Reclamation was not able to fill Palisades Reservoir, so water temperatures at Irwin are already at 52 degrees daily.  This bodes well for an early Salmonfly hatch, most likely in the next week or so. The water is a great green color that we love to see this time of year! Currently trout are gorging themselves on Stonefly nymphs and are sporting some large bellies, especially between Byington and Lorenzo. Some Yellow Sallies and a few Green Drakes are starting to show below Heise.  The Upper stretch continues to produce with Rubberlegs, Mysis Shrimp, and your favorite beadhead trailer. Game on!
