South Fork of the Snake River fishing report 5.19.15

The South Fork of the Snake River in Swan Valley, Idaho has reached it’s peak of Spring flushing flows and is beginning to drop. Flows out of Palisades Dam reached 17,000 cfs this past weekend and is flowing at 15,300 cfs as of today.  We expect flows to be reduced to Summertime levels of 12,800 cfs by this weekend and should hold steady for the duration. This is great news for consistent fly fishing on the South Fork! Despite high flows, there was still some good fishing to be had this past weekend.  Nymphs and streamers are the way to go and look for the soft water and side channels. Trout will move to these spots in high flows and gobble up Stonefly nymphs and worms that are washed down. Spend some time in these spots and you will find fish, especially Brown trout, feeding. We are running fishing trips on the South Fork and our guides are excited for what’s to come on this special river! Give us a call at 307-690-1139 to book your trip.
