Sunny days and skwala hatches on the Snake.

After a long and snowy winter, it is Spring in the Tetons! Sunny days have brought out dry flies, with skwala at the top of the menu. Starting the morning out with a dry-dropper rig will get you on fish before the big bugs hit the water. Fish are eating on top as the day warms up, so throw on a brown, black, or purple chubby for afternoon fishing.

Streamers have been moving fish throughout the day, with the best eats on brown/olive/tan sculpin patterns. The river is moving well and the water temps are still pretty cool, so look to the slow and soft riffles to hold fish. Water clarity has been good, but we could see some changes as the week continues to warm and some of our record-breaking snowpack hits the Snake River drainage. Get out soon and enjoy the fishing!
