Fly Fishing Report-Spring
What are the fish biting on today? Check back often for our latest Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report update!
May 31, 2019
The Snake River in Jackson Hole is in our runoff season with the exception of the Dam to Pacific Creek section. The Tetons have a large snowpack (currently 144%) and we expect higher than average flows into July. Be careful if you venture on this river during its runoff as it posses some serious river navigation with little time for adjustments and the flows are very cold well into July. We will be focused on the dam section for the next few weeks and expect it to fish well by mid-June as hatches return. Right now fishing is only fair with nymphs and streamers. Stay safe!
Snake River Tributaries
Currently all major tribs are blown out, except Flat Creek. The refuge is closed until August 1st but other access points through town and to the south are a fair bet for some afternoon action. Caddis and mayflies through June.
Flows are stable and fishing is heating up, nymphing below mid river gravel bars a good bet.
Teton Park Lakes
JACKSON LAKE: The best fishing in the valley! Points and main lake flats to about 12′ are holding a lot of fish. White streamers and jigs on sinking lines.
JENNY LAKE: no report
cold flows, slow fishing, still waiting for runoff to happen, 185% snowpack!
Yellowstone National Park
Firehole River is fishing decent but flows are rising. Good hatches of caddis and flavs early in June. Lewis Lake is near ice off. Yellowstone is clear of ice, use extreme caution here, cold water can kill you quickly! Fishing is good until the spawn picks up in the next few weeks.
