The Jackson Hole Fishing Report for the past few weeks on the Snake River has been as good of dry fly fishing you could ever ask for in nature! The skwalas were abundant and the fish were eating them on a very consistent basis. We saw 40-50 fish between 15″-20″ every day eating the skwalas! All of the cutthroats we saw were healthy, strong and plentiful; just in time for the spawn.
The juvenile trout populations in the regional waters are abundant, which is explained in the quote below;
The following quote is from the Wyoming Game and Fish Supervisor Mr. Rob Gibson:
“The high runoff from 2011 has resulted in a very strong year-class of fish. The high water makes more spawning habitat available and improves the quality of spawning gravel by removing silt. Population estimates on several of the larger rivers in the valley were higher than in recent years. Fishing will continue to get better as these fish get larger in size.” Reel Deal Anglers is super excited about this news and hope you come experience some great guided fishing this season with our professional guides.
The Snake River and most of the regional waters are now in full runoff mode and will be for awhile. However, Reel Deal Anglers still has quality water to guide on; we’re guiding on the Upper Green River and the New Fork as well. Please click on the link to learn more: http://www.reeldealanglers.com/
