Fly Fishing Report- Late Spring/early Summer
What are the fish biting on today? Check back often for our latest Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report update!
June 13, 2022
The Snake River in Jackson Hole is in full runoff mode below Pacific Creek and the Buffalo Fork in GTNP. Flows at Moose are 10,000cfs and 19,000cfs in the canyon! This is unfortunate for our visiting anglers here now but it does mean we will have fantastic fishing later in July and August. We expect some clearing and dropping by the Fourth of July and its possible fishing will pick up then. Until then we have the section below the dam that is an amazing section and has high numbers of good fish but until the hatches pick up the fish are mostly taking nymph patterns deeper than we traditionally like to fish them, 6′-8′.
Stay safe out there, the flows are high, demanding and cold!
PLEASE, FISH BARBLESS HOOKS AND TAKE CARE OF OUR PRIZED NATIVE CUTTHROATS!
Snake River Tributaries
Runoff region wide.
Lava Creek Ranch- Fly Fishing for Trophy Rainbows with Grand Teton Fly Fishing!
Fishing here has been good with leeches and nymphs. Some days we are seeing afternoon dry fly fishing but nothing too consistent yet.
Flows are high and off color.
Teton Park Lakes
JACKSON LAKE: Good action on white streamers on sinking lines or soft plastics on spinning gear. Try off points in 6′-15′. Clarity is off color and surface temps around 48-53 degrees.
JENNY LAKE: Good in the morning for small lake trout in shallow water, afternoons the cutthroats will cruise for flying ants on the warm, calm days.
Flows on the Green are very high, finally! This area will be in runoff for another 2 weeks before we see a good drop to consider float fishing. Expect worms and stoneflies to be the best flies then.
Yellowstone National Park
Lewis Lake is our best public water option currently with good numbers of Lake trout and brown trout being caught in shallow water on nymphs and small streamer patterns like leeches and buggers.
Yellowstone Lake is fair to good, some fish in spawning mode. As this ends, this lake will pick up in a couple weeks.
