Winter Season – Snake River Fishing Report
December 7, 2018
Snake River Fishing Report – (12.7.18)
The Snake has transitioned into winter fishing mode! Anglers should concentrate on the warmest parts of the day. Look for fish rising to midges and maybe a leftover baetis on cloudy overcast days in slow water types. Nymphing remains productive. Streamer fishing has been ok, remember to keep them low and slow. Throwing streamers below Jackson Lake Dam on an intermediate line or light sink tip can be very productive this time of year.
Remember flows are low, cold and clear. Fish will now be in the winter habitat. Concentrate on slow water types: seams, tailouts, deep holes, slackwater and recirculating eddies.
