Snake River Fishing Report

July 31st, 2016

The Snake River here in the Jackson Hole Valley is in prime summer form, the water levels have dropped and the fishing is great. The fish are looking up for dry flies and are aggressively chasing streamers. While fishing the banks has been a successful  tactic, throwing small foam patterns and dry flies in the riffles has without a doubt produced the most fish. PMD imitations are a great go to in the riffles as well as the E/C and E/Z Caddis patterns in both Olive and Tan. Classic flies like the Parachute Adams,  Royal Wulff and Humpies all get the job done. We are starting to hear the hoppers along the bank get louder and louder every day, so be sure to have a few big foam hopper patterns in the box as well. Stripping streamers from the banks has also been a great way to move bigger fish, Olive is great for sunny days and Black is perfect for when the clouds roll in.

Also, a reminder to everyone that the highly anticipated Flat Creek opener is tomorrow, the fish should be active and looking up.  Expect hatches of caddis and PMDs  throughout the morning.  Big foam attractor patterns will be a go to for the first week or so. Hope everyone can make it out!  See you on the river.
