This past week was a little bit of everything on the Snake River in terms of flies; we saw the bite most consistent on flying Ants, both cinnamon and black, but mostly cinnamon for the dry fly action. There are also fall stones out and about and the fish are definitely eating the big bugs! In the cooler morning putting a dropper on below the big bug has been quite productive as well. Swinging and stripping a streamer has been very productive as well throughout the day.
This past week was yet another wild week of weather and fluctuating temperatures both in the water and air. I’ve included this in the report as it is hugely important factor b/c the temperatures have a profound effect on the aquatic insect lifecycle, which affects the feeding pattern of the fish.

The chart below shows the water temperatures from the past few days on the Snake River in Moose Wyoming. When the temps are consistent we find the hatches to be most consistent therefore the trout feed is too.
