Fall on the Snake

We are having some gorgeous Fall days in Jackson Hole lately, and the fishing is great.  It has been warming up nicely mid-day and we’ve seen some bugs hatching.  Blue wings are out in force and the fish are looking for them.  Mahoganies and October caddis are also flying around and can get a look […]

August fishing is hot, hot, hot!

    We’ve had lots of warm days this summer in Jackson Hole, and grasshopper fishing is in full swing.  The mornings have seen consistent PMD and caddis hatches.  As the day heats up and the hoppers start buzzing, it’s been good to switch to foam.  There have been a variety of patterns working, so […]

Summer, summer, summertime

The Snake is clear (finally) and fishing! We have been seeing bigger fish as the flows stabilize and trout settle into their summer homes.  The chubby chernobyl has been eaten consistently, but the color they prefer depends on the day and the stretch…try out purple, black and tan, yellow…don’t be afraid to throw a dropper […]

July on the Fly

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 […]

It’s Getting Good…

The rivers are starting to take shape in Jackson Hole and the fish are biting.  The trout on the Green have been eating big foam flies and drakes.  The worm is always a good bet if you want to fish a dry-dropper.  The spring creeks have seen the fish rise to similar flies…foam and mayflies […]

June Fishing in Jackson Hole

We are still in high water season in Jackson Hole, but the fishing is starting to shape up as the water drops.  The Green has been a go-to spot for floating.  Our guides have been catching fish on dries, nymphs and streamers.  A few salmonflies have been spotted out.  The fish haven’t completely keyed into […]

It’s Spring in Jackson Hole

Spring is in full effect here in the Tetons and the rivers are high. We had another year of big snowpack, which will make for a great fishing season. If you need to scratch your angling itch, we have some good early season options. Cottonwood Lake is a great place to knock the rust off […]

Fishing on The Snake River is still going strong

Fishing on The Snake River is still going strong.  Unseasonably warm temperatures and sunny days this mid October have provided us with some phenomenal fall fishing.  The water releasing out of the Jackson Lake Dam has settled to our wintertime flows, and the fish are fired up, putting on the pounds for our long winter […]
