Fly & 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 24, 2022

Snake River

The Snake River in Jackson Hole has been running at low, winter flows since early October. The current fishing is very weather dependent and even on the best days there is only a small window of fair activity, about 1-3pm. On sunny days you could find a few fish rising to midges in calm riffles and tail outs. Slow retrieved streamers are also a good bet in deep runs or inside turns.

Current Snowpack for the drainage: 103%


Snake River Tributaries

Cold flows are slow activity, check regs for some closures.

Lava Creek Ranch- Ice Fishing for Trophy Rainbows with Grand Teton Fly Fishing!

Ice depth is about 16″ and our recent trips have had excellent success on small marabou jigs and soft plastics. An average day draws about 30 looks, 15 eats and about 6-10 fish landed to the ice surface. Most of the fish are between 20-25″, 3-7 lbs, so far this ice season we have landed 3 fish approaching 10lbs!! Be sure to reach out and book this unique and popular winter venue.

Salt River

Flows are very low and cold.

Teton Park Lakes

JACKSON LAKE: Good, safe ice recently reported all over the lake, some thin areas could remain on the main lake so proceed with extreme caution. Ice 6-10″, try white jigs near points in 10-20′ of water. Fish are spread out, so being patient is key. The morning bite has been the best.

JENNY LAKE: Good ice, 10-12″

Good Luck!

Green River

Flows are very low and cold. Expect shelf ice and limited access.
