The Jackson area waters have come down nicely and are quickly clearing up. Area
streams are fishing great, and especially our local stretch of the Snake. We have been having great success with small to medium foam patterns, yellow sallies, caddis, PMD’s, and the good old trusty Parachute Adams. Hopper dropper rigs are a great way to cover the water right now. Just tie a PMD Emerger, Prince Nymph, or a Duracell below your foam fly to fish both the surface and subsurface water. As things heat up, watch for bigger bugs, we should be able to throw big foam patterns very soon.
Pinedale area streams are still high and cold, but should be fishing great any day now as the water drops and clears up. Streamer fishing has been produtive, as well as nymphing in the soft seams on the banks and behind structures. Copper Johns, Batman, and pheasant tails all work. The fish aren’t too picky on the pattern if you get a good drift. Watch for dry fly action to heat up with the weather. Green Drakes should be popping up any day now.
The South Fork of the Snake below Palisades is running at 11,500 as of July 4th. The big bugs seem to be a bit behind schedule but are beginning to show themselves. Nymphing with rubber legs is going to be effective, but when you see rising fish and salmonflies ... tie on that foam!
We still have a few spots available for this month ... give us a call to reserve your spot!
