The fishing on the Snake here in the Jackson Hole Valley continues to be the best fishing in the area. We have had a few nights of weather below 32 degrees which has kept the water temperatures between 55-60 degrees, great news for the fishing. With these cooler days we have been seeing that the fishing isn’t really picking up until about 9-10am, so no need to get a really early start. In terms of the quality of the fishing, not much has changed from our previous report, it has continued to be great. Fish are feeding on all types of mayfly imitations, size 14 and 16 seem to be the best sizes. Foam attractor patterns and hoppers are still working, wait to use these when the temperatures heat up in the middle of the day. When the clouds roll in look to use a dark colored streamer in those deeper holes and along deep slow banks. The forecast looks like we are going to see a few days of cool cloudy weather with some rain here and there. Don’t hesitate to tie on a hopper-dropper rig with a pheasant tail, prince nymph or pat’s rubber legs as the dropper. All in all the fishing has been and continues to be great. Look for conditions to change with the unsettled weather over the next few days.

I moved to Jackson Hole in 1995 from Morganton, NC and began working with Westbank Anglers in 1996 as a shop employee. I worked at Westbank as a shop employee and guide until 1999 when I got a 'real job' and worked in a local bank and a short stint as a investment advisor. In 2002 I purchased Westbank Anglers and in 2004 Katie and I had our first child, Lucie, next came Mason in 2006 and Colter in 2010, the rest is history!
