Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report
What are the fish biting on today? Check back often for our latest Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report update!
September 11, 2017
The Snake River in Jackson Hole is in its prime season and the fishing is becoming more consistent daily as tributary flows slowly drop and the main river settles into its late season form. Our cutthroats are responding well to a variety of dry flies, nymphs and streamers. Late season hatches of Western Brown stoneflies, hecuba drakes, tricos and mahogany duns are common, especially on cloudier days. Terrestrial flies are also on the main menu near grass lined banks. Small ants are tough to beat on the Snake late season, get out there!
Flows at the Dam: 2000cfs, Moose: 3400cfs, Canyon: 5000cfs
Snake River Tributaries
Local tribs are in great shape and the fishing is good to excellent. Try attractors and small streamers or nymphs below the attractor fly in the deeper runs. A good tip is to be mobile and cover a lot of water, getting further away certainly helps as well.
Fishing has really heated up on the South Fork after a slow start due to the high water this year. We hear large dries and pmd’s are working well, Go check it out!
This river has been consistent since July. The best reports are on pmd cripples trailed behind a hopper or ant. Droppers are a good bet early in the day as flows here are cool and need time to warm a bit. Some tricos and tiny BWO’s.
Teton Park Lakes
No recent report. Try beetles and ants for cruising cutthroats early and late.
Fishing is good and the flows are still very good for this time of year. Seeing hatches of tricos and the hopper bite is very good some days in the afternoon.
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!
Take good care of our trout!
