Both the South Fork and Snake rivers have fished very well lately. Good hatches of PMD’s have had most of the fish looking up. Cloudy days have been best, but fishing on sunny days has been equally good at times. We should see some of the best hopper fishing of the season over the next […]
Hoppers are Here, fish are looking for them, and we’re excited about it. Hopper fishing is almost like a second salmonfly hatch – big foam dry flies bringing up big, hungry fish. Splat them, twitch them dead drift them, just figure out what’s making the fish tick on that particular day and you are in […]
We are seeing very healthy flows on The South Fork, Henry’s Fork, and Snake rivers right now. The Teton is still in great shape and fishing very well. On the South Fork, we have been seeing good hatches of PMD’s, Golden Stones, and yellow sallies; hoppers will be a good option in the days to […]
Dry fly fishing on the South Fork is kicking off with a bang this week as salmonflies, golden stones, PMD’s and Yellow Sallies are all hatching in good numbers. We have seen very good fishing with big foam dry flies in the canyon this week, and there are some fish moving onto the riffles to […]
We’ve finally gotten some good news on the South Fork. Flows have begun to drop and it appears that The Bureau of Rec will continue to drop flows daily. They are forecasting the river to be down to around 15,000 CFS by next week and will drop the flows to between 12 and 13,000 where […]
Flows out of Palisades Dam have jumped to 17,500 to accommodate for the massive inflow of water above the reservoir. This is going to make fishing on the South Fork a challenge, but hopefully flows will stabilize soon. In the mean time, the Henry’s Fork continues to fish extremely well. Nymphing in the Box Canyon […]
WCA Guide Pat Bennett fished the Box last Saturday and Sunday with some clients new to flyfishing and hooked more than 40 fish on on both days. The best flies were the size 6 Pat’s Black and tan rubberlegs with a purple flash prince or red copper bob dropper. The seagulls were picking up bugs […]
WCA Guide Mike Medvecz shows off a huge rainbow from the Henry’s Fork. Nothing better than catching big trout on dries!
Brown Hobson, Orvis Store Manager and his brother, Hunter Hobson, show off a 27 3/4″ brown trout from the South Fork. Hunter caught the fish on a Sex Dungeon Streamer, it was his first fish of the day!
After the Bureau of Land Reclamation decreased flows on the South Fork last week, we have started to see some better fishing days. With warmer temperatures forcasted, fishing should only get bettter. Check out this pig rainbow from WCA Guide Trevor Wine yesterday on the Upper South Fork.
