Winter Midges – Snake River Fishing Report
December 17, 2020
Snake River Fishing Report – (12.17.20)
The Snake is low and clear. Flows have been dropped to winter levels of 280 cfs being discharged from Jackson Lake Dam. Expect those flows for the next 4-6 months. Most of our fall hatches have finished up. Expect to see some Midges as the dominant hatches for the remainder of winter. These bugs can create some dry fly fishing opportunities in slow water types including pools, eddies and recirculations. Conditions are going to have to be warm and calm. Look for fishing to get going later in the day as nights are getting cooler. Anglers can also find some good fishing opportunities up by Jackson Lake Dam by throwing streamers on intermediate and sink tip lines.
