Snake River

The Snake River in Jackson Hole is quickly coming into shape for the season! Flows are clearing daily and dropping to a fishable level in the last few days. Fishing is good on the upper section below the dam but only fair below the Buffalo Fork, this should improve dramatically in the next week or two. Look for good sally and PMD hatches with some golden stones mixed in. Enjoy, it should be a great summer on the Snake!

Flows at the Dam: 2500cfs, Moose: 7000cfs, Canyon: 9000cfs and dropping!

Snake River Tributaries

Many of our local tribs are dropping and clearing. The best are Flat Creek and Pacific Creek. The GV, Buffalo and Hoback are fishable but need a week or so to settle, it looks good for late July!

South Fork

The South Fork is slowly coming into shape as well as flows drop to around 16,000cfs but clarity remains off. Clarity is improving and when she clears expect this to fish incredible!

Salt River

This sweet little river has dropped and we are getting some good reports. Flows are around the magic 1000cfs mark and dropping. Try sallies and attractors for it’s hungry cutties.

Teton Park Lakes

Jenny Lake has been fishing very well with flying ants and beetles. Jackson Lake is full and clarity is much better. Fish hard from 10-30′, they are there! Having good luck with white sparkle minnows and jigs.

Green River

This river has been fishing well but running high with decent clarity(2′). As it settles and drops below 1800cfs in the next week it should be fishing very good. Guides are reporting good fishing with large dry flies but spotty. Nymphing with worms and rubber legs still getting the best action as flows clear a bit more.

Yellowstone National Park

Fishing is holding up but no recent reports from the guides. The lakes are best early and late in the day, look for callibaetis and terrestrials. Check it out!

Be Patient this Year, the late summer and fall will be fantastic!!
