Walk Wade Jackson Hole Fishing Report – (10.5.20)
The Jackson Hole and Teton Valley area offers some incredible DIY wade fishing opportunities during the early fall. These wade fishing opportunities are finishing up as fall takes a firmer grasp on Teton Valley and Jackson Hole.
South Fork and Palisades Reservoir Tributaries: Open – Fishing ok. Look for Pine Creek and Bear Creek to be getting cold and low. Look for dry droppers and attractors to be productive on warm sunny days. BWOs, Hecuba Drakes and Mahoganies will be out on cloudy and overcast days. Better angling opportunities can be found on the Snake, South Fork, Henry’s Fork and Teton River.
Jackson Hole/Snake River Tributaries: Snake River tributaries are stable and fishing well. Flows are getting low and water temps are cooling down. Terrestials are finishing up. Attractors, Hoppers and Terrestrials paired with droppers will be productive as summer continues. Snake Drakes and Mahoganies are making their presence known. The Snake is prime for wade fishing with low flows.
Teton River Tributaries: Open – Look for Bitch Creek and Badger Creek to be finishing up their angling season. Water levels are getting a bit low and cold, so be stealthy. Hopper/Droppers are the way to go as summer ends and fall begins.
