Walk Wade Jackson Hole Fishing Report – (10.8.19)
The Jackson Hole and Teton Valley area offer some great DIY wade fishing opportunities during the fall months. All tributaries are now clear and stable. Afternoons are going to be your best bet as daytime temps are cooling off.
South Fork and Palisades Reservoir Tributaries: Open – look for Bear Creek and Pine Creek to low. Big Elk Creek and others are the best options but cooling off. Dry droppers will be productive as well as shallow nymph rigs. Be on the lookout for Baetis and Mahoganies.
Jackson Hole/Snake River Tributaries: The Hoback, Gros Ventre, Greys and Buffalo Fork are all in good fishing shape but getting low and cold. Dry dropper rigs will be king as well as small attractors and streamers.
Teton River Tributaries: Open – Bitch Creek is clear and the fishing is well. Look for these tributaries to continue to fish well until water levels get too cold and clear.
