Rated as the top cutthroat stream in the West, the South Fork is a tailwater fishery that flows out of Palisades Dam on the border of Wyoming and Idaho. The diversity of hatches, both aquatic and terrestrial, exceeds other rivers of the West, and gives the South Fork the reputation for the best dry fly fishing in the world. Wild populations of native Yellowstone Cutthroat and Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat provide great dry fly action year-round. With a healthy population of browns and rainbows ranging from 15-25 inches, the South Fork is a fly fisher’s dream.

Winter Time – South Fork Fishing Report
December 5, 2019
South Fork Fishing Report – (12.5.19)
The South Fork of the Snake offers great winter fishing opportunities. Flows are now at 1250 cfs. Look for fish to take up home in slower water types for the winter season. Leftover Baetis and Midges can be out and about during warm spells. Nymphing with Rubberlegs, small pheasant tails, zebra midges and BWO imitations will continue to be the most productive method for the winter months.
