Damn, that’s high water!

Emery Rheam with a beautiful cutty on Fish Creek.

The Tetons continue to shed their massive snowpack and the rivers are still raging.  These conditions will do a load of good for the fishery going forward.  The rivers will, most likely, stay cooler longer (happy trout!) and late summer and fall fishing will be great.  The high water also flushes sediment out of gravel beds, making ideal spawning habitat and healthier future fish populations…yay high water!

Fortunately, if you have the itch to fish we are still having a lot of success on Cottonwood Lake and the Spring Creeks on Snake River Ranch.  A variety of tactics are pulling a variety of trout, and there is a good chance that the warming weather will bring out dry flies.  Come enjoy the beautiful summer weather with us, let’s catch fish!
