Fishing Report 6-11-2019
The Snake river is in peak run-off condition with seasonal waters topping out in the next few days. Water flows dropped twice from the Jackson Lake Dam since June 3rd and then recently bumped back up June10th to 3050 CFS. This adds a temporary slow in run-off conditions but can offer some unique fishing conditions in a few days. This floatable section from the Jackson Lake Damn downstream to Pacific Creek offers the slower, clearest, fishable water with no major tributary to add turbidity to the stretch. As of late, this section will clear sooner than others in the area still offering favorable conditions once flows stabilize from the Dam.
Look initially to a sub-surface approach to key in on feeding fish. Streamers can be productive with a mini dungeon, JJ’s Special or Sculpin pattern. Try a Nymph rig classic pairing a Flash PT and Ju Ju Baetis to target those sub surface takes.
For a top water approach go with a trusty size 12-14 Parachute Adams or Purple Haze variant.
