One More Week Before Closures | Oct 23, 2022

The weather has changed to a normal late October pattern of cold mornings and cool afternoons. There is still some excellent fishing for our native cutthroat but fishing hours are limited. Most activity is from 2pm to 5pm. Small grey Baetis/BWO mayflies are hatching and bring nice cutts to the top. Small parachutes like Lexi GED, Two Tone BWO and HiVis Adams are good in size 18. Also carry some suspended emergers: Sanchez Split top, Smoke jumpers and Quigley Cripple. Also expect to see

some midges. Flat Creek and the Snake are still great options to fish. Nymphing is very productive - both indicator and Euro style. Perdigon style jig nymphs sink quickly when you are fishing small flies. This is a great time to try Euro nymphing.

We're down to winter flows on Snake which makes it easy to wade. Jenny Lake is also a good option to catch lake trout on flies or lures. Leech pattern
