Fly n Ice Fishing Report- Mid Winter
What are the fish biting on today? Check back often for our latest Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report update!
January 12, 2023
The Snake River in Jackson Hole is in a winter pattern. Expect slow activity nearly everyday except the warmest days of the month, not many. As we get into February things can begin to shift and wake up, especially later in the month. Then by March, its on! Any warm day you will see fish rising to midges, winter stones and BWO’s.
If we get a strong warming trend then some rising fish could happen in the late afternoon. Look for runs that see extended sun exposure and less shade. Look us up for a spring adventure!
PLEASE, FISH BARBLESS HOOKS AND TAKE CARE OF OUR PRIZED NATIVE CUTTHROATS!

Teton Park Lakes
JACKSON LAKE: Ice is about 5-8″ nearly everywhere, yet extreme caution should be used! Seeing lots of overflow/slush from snow pack and rising lake levels, so expect some messy ice in areas. Fishing has been consistent on small white tubes and gulp. We like shallow early, moving deeper after 9-10am, up to 50′. Good marks moving through but most are fussy, downsizing helps.
JENNY LAKE: good, safe ice, 12-20″, still use extreme caution and have a partner.
Very cold flows and drifting ice pads. Slow fishing but warm afternoons may produce on dead drifted streamers or nymphs in deep runs.
