South Fork of the Snake River Fly Fishing Report 1.23.11

Good fly fishing reports have been coming in from the South Fork of the Snake River recently in Swan Valley, ID.  Midges have been popping in good numbers on the warmer days where temperatures reach freezing and above.  Trout are rising to them between 2-4 pm.  Best flies are #20 Zelon Midges and Skittering Midges, #18-20 Griffith’s Gnats, and Black #18-20 Zebra Midges or Rainbow Warriors.  Flows out of Palisades Dam have been increased to 1900 cfs to make room for the upcoming spring runoff.  No boat ramps are open as of yet, wade fishing is still the best option. Stay tuned for more information.
