The 20012/2013 ski season has come to an end in Jackson Hole! The best part about that is the fishing season is ramping up in local and regional waters! It was a great winter for Grand Fishing Adventures guides whom are all employed in one capacity or another within the local ski industry in Jackson Hole.
Many guides take time during the quick off-season to sneak away and fish in both warm and cold climates. Guide Clay Moorehead went down to the Bahamas and had great success chasing big bonefish.
GFA guides Andrew Byron and Thad Stavn took to the open roads of Wyoming in searched for big browns, rainbows, and the majestic cutthroat! Although they did some fishing in the snow they were lucky enough to get some nice weather and catch many trout of all shapes and sizes.
Early season fishing on the local Snake River is excellent! Fish are being found in pods in slower lazy water. If you can catch a warmer day they have been very active eating on the surface during the warmer time of day. BWOs have been productive along with the occasional skwala if you time it right! As always the nymphing this time of year is great due to the fishing being eager to eat after a long winter. Standard nymph patterns are working including small rubber legs, prince nymphs, crazy charlies, and robotic rib busters. Make sure to drop a size 16-20 copper john off the larger fly to imitate the smaller nymphs in the water column.
Guided trips are booking weekly!!! Please call 307-734-9684 to book a trip or with any questions about fishing in and around Jackson Hole during the spring!
