Fall is in the air…

What a lovely time of year…the leaves are changing, tourist season has slowed, and the fish are still eating foam!  The Snake continues to fishing well.  Fishing with foam has been really consistent.  Lots of different patterns (hopper, ant, stonefly) and colors (the whole rainbow) have been working, depending on the stretch of water you are […]

Mid-August Fishing Report

It’s terrestrial season on the Snake!  We have seen lots of grasshoppers and crane flies, think foam.  The trusty chubby chernobyl will bring a fish to the top.  In the mornings PMD’s and caddis are flying and a good option.  In general, the fishing has been best midday when the temperatures warm a bit.  Streamers […]

The Snake comes into shape.

  This week on the Snake saw more big fish eating on the surface, and we are excited about it!  Terrestrials are getting the trout fired up, hitting a variety of foam patterns such as circus peanuts and the trusty chubby chernobyl.  We are seeing the occasional PMD and caddis hatch, so these are also […]

August 1 Fishing

Wow, it’s August! We have finally hit flows that are consistent with the historical average on the Snake and the fishing is coming into shape.  We are seeing risers on chubby chernobyls and other foam, think circus peanuts and water walkers.  Starting the day on nymphs (rubber legs, pheasant tails) or with a hopper-dropper is […]

The Snake, the Green, and Spring Creeks

  The Snake: We are getting closer to normal summer levels on the Snake every day.  Clarity has improved and we are right around the corner from some great fishing.  Your best bet is fishing the soft water – riffles, trenches, slow eddies and banks.  That said, we are starting to see the occasional hit […]

Mid-July Fishing

The grey drake hatch is still going full force on the Upper Green.  Days are warming up quickly so head to the river early to catch the hatch.  There are also some fish eating golden stones more consistently (foam!) and a variety of other dries, think caddis, yellow sallies, and pmds.   A dry with […]

The Green is fishing…well.

  The Green is in!  We have had some great days on the Green river as it drops and clears.  There have been HUGE drake hatches and some of the fish are looking up to dries.  Drakes and stone flies have attracted the most interest, with the promise of more stones on the way as […]

Damn, that’s high water!

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 […]

Cottonwood Lake Fishing

The snow is coming down from the mountains and our regional waterways are seeing some of the highest water levels in years.  It’s a great time to fish a lake or spring creek while the rivers get their annual refresh.  Cottonwood Lake has been fishing really well, with cutthroat, lake, and brook trout eating streamers, dries […]

Hot Fishing on the Spring Creeks

  High water has hit the Rockies and the big rivers are running fast. While the fishing is on hold across most of the area, the spring creeks are still great options to get on some beautiful trout.  Fish Creek and Lake Creek on Snake River Ranch are waters that GFA fishes exclusively, and they […]
