Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report

 

What are the fish biting on today?  Check back often for our latest Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report update!

October 4, 2017

Snake River

The Snake River in Jackson Hole is currently dropping as flows from the dam at Jackson Lake are being minimized to winter flows. By the weekend we should see flows from the dam at 400cfs and Moose will hold in there around 1000cfs. The flows are dropping but the fishing is very good, best once it stabilizes in a few days. Seeing BWO’s and a few mahoganies after 1pm. Early try droppers along slow seams and streamers in holes seem to be working well.

Snake River Tributaries

Local tribs are still running high for this time of year due to recent snow and rain. Flows have cooled and fishing can be very slow until late afternoon. Streamers and nymphs best.

South Fork

No recent report

Salt River

no recent report, cold flows.

Teton Park Lakes

Jenny lake is good for cutthroats; on the calm days look for rising fish on the western shoreline. Lake trout are spawning in areas but can be tough to entice. Jackson Lake closed until November 1st.

Green River

Fishing is good with streamers but can be spotty. Flows running high for this time of year and cold. Cloudy afternoons best.

Yellowstone National Park

Lewis Lake is our best fall venue for brown trout, most 17″ to 20″! Recent trips seeing staging males in lake corners near outlet and inlet. A variety of streamers work well including: zonkers, kiwis, leeches and buggers. Yellow, black and olive are best.

Take good care of our trout!
