The Snake River has really turned on the over the past few days! We are now offering our float trips, which is the best way to enjoy the spring action. Our trips are from 10am to 5pm and are $450 which includes; rods/reels, waders, lunch, non-alcoholic beverages, flies and leaders. Excludes: Wyoming License and gratuity, if you feel so inclined.

The best action is in the afternoon, as the water temps warm up. We’re seeing midges, winter stones and a few bwos too. The larger fish are in the deep pools in the back water sipping the emergers. Be mindful of your false casting as these fish are super spooky. When nymphing, the best action is right below the riffles, at the drop off so you don’t need more leader length than the depth you’re fishing. We recommend using floro when fishing sub surface. For the dry fly set up 5x with 8-9ft is key. The dry dropper combo has been really consistent as well. After the bite on the surface slows down slowly stripping a streamer can produce a few fish as well.

The spring fishing conditions are really quite volatile and can change very quickly so we understand if it’s necessary to change dates or cancel. We have no cancellation policy and are very flexible. Case in point, I just looked up the weather report just now and here’s what it says:
