Fontenelle Dam Fishing Update

 

6.20.2018

Greetings,

Fontenelle Reservoir is currently at 83% of full capacity with the pool elevation at 6498.20 feet as of June 20, 2018. Fontenelle Dam is currently releasing 6,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), as of 1:00 p.m. on 6/20/2018.

Significant precipitation above Fontenelle Reservoir is contributing to higher-than-anticipated runoff. The previous notification is being amended to cancel planned reductions in releases that would have otherwise occurred on 06/21/2018 and 06/25/2018.

Releases will remain at 6,000 cfs until further notice.

Please note:
The current release schedule is subject to observed hydrology and is subject to change.
This notification supersedes all previously issued notifications and is current until a new one is issued. All times identified in this directive are local time (Mountain Daylight Time) and are not hour ending.

New Fork Fishing Report

Flows near Big Piney: 2530 CFS

The New Fork Fishing Report is the bite has been consistently good over the past several weeks on the nymph rig and we’re seeing a few dry flies out and a few fish keying in on them. The fish are mostly keyed in on the worm bite but that seems to slowing down a bit, depending on what section you’re fishing. There has been an increase in the boat hatch, so give us a call so we can get you out and away from the herd! We’re getting prepared for the Golden Stones and Grey Drakes, which are legendary hatches.

Flows at Warren Bridge; 1630 CFS

Flows in La Barge; 5370 CFS

Our Upper Green River Fishing Report today is we’ve started to guide on the Upper Green River just the past several days now that the flows have slowed down. What comes up must go down, at some point! The flows have been 2 to 3 times the 30 year average so as you can see the charts below, it’s really tricky predicting what, when, why and how since there is not a dam on the Upper Green River. Not having a dam has positives and negatives, but there sure are more positives than negatives, thankfully. The water is still very cold, so nymphing a turd and a worm under an indicator between 8-9ft has been producing the best and most consistent results. There’s caddis out in the late afternoon and into the evening and the fish haven’t keyed into them just yet. We’re looking forward to seeing the golden stones and drakes in the next few weeks.

We’re still going to let the Snake River calm down before we even attempt a exploratory trip. We want and will make certain that you will have a legitimate shot at catching fish before we take a paying trip down the Snake River in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Our goal is for you to be able to enjoy your day on the water as we can appreciate that you’re trusting us to put you on fish!

Our best guess is at least 7-10 days before it’s up to our standards. There are other outfitters who are already out there as they are every year. We have much better options only a short drive away to the Reel Wyoming!

Flows near Big Piney; 3930 CFS

The New Fork River Fishing Report has the conditions being much more favorable with the bite getting better and better every day. At the moment the flows are receding from the peak and the fish are starting to get more active every day. The bite is the classic turd and worm combo under a strike indicator, set about 8-9ft above the point fly and a BB shot in the faster water. The fish are sill in the deep slots and on the inside seams on the bends.
