Well, it was a bit of a long winter here in Jackson Hole

The Tetons received over 400 inches of snow this year, which is really good news for our western rivers.  Lots of snow in the mountains leads to better habitat for both aquatic bugs as well as trout!  Pre-runoff, we had some really great days dry fly fishing on The Snake.  Midges were out in full force throughout much of March, and with some beautiful days in the 40s and 50s, there wasn’t a better place to be than the river.  Although the water became muddy about a week ago, cooler weather over the last couple of days has cleared the water up a bit, allowing us to get back out on The Snake.  If you are looking to get out and do some dry fly fishing, don’t be afraid to throw some big foam, skwala patterns between 1 and 5 pm, or during the heat of the day.  Remember, skwalas aren’t flyers, they swim.  Get that foam twitching and be ready for some nice cutties looking up!  If you are looking for a guide to get you out on the water, don’t hesitate to call.  Our staff is more than excited to be up and running for the season!  Tight lines!”
