Flows at Moose: 1210 CFS

Flows below Jackson: 1790 CFS

Water temps: mid to high 30s in the am to low 40’s in the afternoon

The Snake River in Jackson Hole has been pretty vacant the past few days due to the storms that have been passing through, which brought some really nice moisture. The Upper Snake snowpack has inched back up to 91%, which is great, considering the Upper Snake Reservoir System is 85% full right now! Starting Friday, look for the midge hatches to really start firing off again in the mid to late afternoons.We’re hoping for some more BWO’s to show up as well. Looking at the 10 day forecast, the temps look to be below freezing every night and only getting a few days in the low 50’s. With this forecast in mind look for the afternoon to be the best action overall.

Nymphing is still your best bet for consistent action but this weekend’s warmer temps we might get some dry fly action too. The fish are sure to be in the heads of the riffles, right where the depth drops off during the feed along with the inner foam lines too.

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, skittering midge or Bobs 5 second midge

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


For our spring specials we’re offering a half day float for $375 from noon to 5pm or a 3/4 day for $450 from 10am to 5pm. To book your trip please call 307.739.7020.
