Early Winter Season – Snake River Fishing Report
January 31, 2020
Snake River Fishing Report – (1.31.20)
The Snake is stable, clear and can fish well during the winter months. Discharge from Jackson Lake Dam has been settled to winter flows of 280 cfs. Expect those flows for the next couple of months. For the early winter season expect leftover Baetis and Midges to be the go to bugs. Small dry fly fishing can still been good with fish now being found in slower water types, eddies, seamlines and tailouts when conditions are right. Look for nymphing to be very productive with rubberlegs, small pheasant tails, zebra midges and baetis imitations. Throwing streamers low and slow can produce some surprises.
