We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas holiday and we’re looking forward to a very Happy New Year! So far, our snowpack in Wyoming is continuing to increase and we hope this trend continues for the duration of the winter. The Snake River Reservoir system is currently at 31% of capacity so we’re headed in the right direction after the system was darn near depleted last summer. Please see the diagrams posted below.
The Jackson Hole Fishing Report on the Snake River is; the action has been limited to a several hour window in the afternoons from approx. 2-4pm when the temps are above 25 degrees. Your best bet is to nymph a 7-9 foot leader with a flashback pheasant tail (#14) as your point fly and drop a small zebra midge (#20) about 18″ below the point fly. Make sure you add some split shot above the point fly which the weight amount will depend on the depth and speed of the water you’re fishing. The fish seem to be concentrated either in or near the riffles.
