The Snake is on fire!

Big fish are hungry and the fishing on the Snake is awesome. Caddis have been doing well in the mornings and PMDs are working through out the day. As temps warm up you can look to terrestrials to attract nice fish.  Hoppers, beetles, ants and crane flies will all bring trout to the surface.  Riffles, banks and drop-offs are all fishing well, with the fast banks really firing in the afternoon.  There seems to be a bit of an afternoon lull but your arm may need a break!

The Snake continues to fish well as we enter the toasty days of summer. In the early part of the day fish have been rising to PMD and yellow sally hatches.  Soft riffles have been the most consistent spots to catch the fish, and we have been seeing some bigger trout eating in faster water.  Banks and drop-offs have been producing fish as well. The afternoons have been all about the grasshoppers, and a variety of foam patterns have been working. There has been a bit of a lull in the late afternoons, but that may change as more clouds roll in this week.

The spring creeks continue to fish really well…give us a call and we will get you out there!

 

The trout are hungry…get out there!

The Snake has cleared and the fish are looking up. A variety of foam flies have been attracting nice fish, with both grasshopper and stonefly patterns working well. For a sure-fire combo, throw a dropper under that foam.  Riffles, banks, and drop-offs have all been holding fish.

The creeks on the ranch are on fire! Big fish are eating dry flies and it’s a great way to spend the day wading in the Tetons.

The tributaries to the Snake are clearing well, and it is improving the fishing every day.  With increased clarity we are seeing more fish come to the surface.  Chubby chernobyl’s are getting some good looks, and are a great option with a dropper below it.  We have had success below the surface on Pat’s rubber legs, prince nymphs and worms.

The Green is still seeing good drake hatches.  Water temps are warming a bit in the afternoon, so your best bet for big fish is earlier or later in the day.  If the fish aren’t rising to the drake try nymphing with a prince or hare’s ear, or swing a sparkle minnow.

It’s been a mixed bag on the spring creeks this week.  Fish have been caught on a variety of mayflies, foam flies, mayfly nymphs and streamers.  The creek water is cold and the fish are happy!
