Spring Cutty

Spring has sprung, in a huge way on the Snake River! March Madness is fully upon us in every sense of the phrase; Hoops, above average temps and killer fishing! The past few days have been absolutely fantastic action with short sleeve weather to boot. The midges and winter stones are still the flavor de jour, but don’t count the blue winged olives out either as they’re getting more prolific every day. The action has been best from 11am until mid to late afternoon. The fish are still in the typical spots along the seams and rip lines(where the currents meet) and foam lines as well. Look for the fish to be feeding in the middle areas of the pools in mid afternoon and towards the tail outs where the spent midges are. The dry fly action has been best in mid to late afternoon and the nymphing and streamer action have been good most of the day.

Our most consistent flies are:

Point fly: # 14-16 soft hackle pheasant tail or hare’s ear, copper john, black magic

Trailer fly: # 18-20 Allen’s mighty midge, zebra midge, drowning midge or a san juan worm in red or orange

Dry Flies: #18-20 Marvelous Midge emergers, high vis Griffith’s nat, spent midge or Bobs 5 second midge

Streamers: #4-8 white zonker, green weenies, flash a bugger or a green beldar bugger
