Winter Midges – Snake River Fishing Report
March 30, 2021
Snake River Fishing Report – (3.30.21)
The Snake is still low and clear. Wilson, South Park and Astoria boat ramps have all been plowed and are boat accessible. For those floating South Park to Astoria – BE CAREFUL. There is a new rapid on river left. It is a large wave train so be sure to push through it.
Flows have been are hovering at 545 cfs being discharged from Jackson Lake Dam. Expect some increases in flows as warmer days and nights start to melt some of our snow pack. With the recent warm weather, we’ve seen an uptick in our fishing opportunities on the Snake. Expect to see some Midges and Capnia stoneflies. These bugs have been creating some great dry fly fishing opportunities in slow water types including pools, eddies and recirculations. Look for fishing to get going as our days lengthen and warm up. Anglers can also find some good fishing opportunities up by Jackson Lake Dam by throwing streamers on intermediate and sink tip lines.
