South Fork of The Snake Fishing Report 7/9/16

Fish The Fly guide Mike Uritus with a nice Rainbow trout on the South Fork!

The South Fork is on fire right now!  The South Fork of the Snake is flowing at 14150 cfs near Irwin, Idaho, with a water temperature of 53 degrees fahrenheit below the Palisades Dam.  If you are a dry fly fisherman than fly fishing the South Fork should be your next fishing spot, because the fish are eating everything!  Bring along your Salmon Flies, Golden Stones, rusty or yellow color Water Walkers (sizes 4-8), and Chubby Chernobyls. The Salmon Flies have been fishing very well throughout the South Fork, particularly in the canyon and upper section. Golden Stones have really been turning on below Irwin, Idaho. If you get tired of fishing big foam bring along some size 14-16 PMD Cripples. There are a lot of good riffle spots along the South Fork and these smaller dry flies work perfectly for them! PMD’s have been fishing well all the way down to Lorenzo.  If the fish are not rising, Rainbow Warriors are a good nymphing option to pick up some bottom feeding trout. The South Fork of the Snake is a very popular fly fishing spot for Jackson Hole and has lived up to the hype these past few weeks!
