South Fork of the Snake River fly fishing report 7.8.12

The South Fork of the Snake really picked up with some clouds and weather this weekend.  Reports are good from the Canyon, where the trout are up eating Salmonfly adults and Yellow Sallies.  There are also good numbers of PMD’s flying, especially in Section #3 below Cottonwood.  Both riffles and banks are producing, so now is the time to get to the South Fork! We expect that the dry fly fishing will only improve for the next month, with fish eating off the surface all day and not just in the afternoons. Best Flies:  #6 Salmonfly Adults, #14-16 Yellow Stimulator, #16 Pink Film Critic, #14-16 Tim’s Pink Sally, #6 Water Walker Golden

Sue Haun loves catching brown trout on dries!
