Fishing Report 6-27-2019
The Upper Snake River drainage is seeing a change in water flow intensities throughout the area.
Surrounding tributaries such as Pacific Creek, Spread Creek, Buffalo Fork and the Gros Ventre river have shown a recent drop in volume. Jackson Lake Dam remains steady at 2450cfs after slowing water output twice since June 17th. This continues to make the Dam to Pacific Creek stretch favorable for its clarity and lack of major tributaries to muddy the waters.
A sub surface approach with soft hackles, snow cones zebra midges or lightning bugs.
The Green River and New Fork has been off color and improving for the persistent angler in recent days despite the high water conditions. Gaging stations in the drainage show a decrease in overall flows recently. Most reports claim a San Juan Worm or Pat’s RL to produce bites.
The Henry’s Fork, South Fork, Madison, Firehole and Gibbon rivers remain the most productive fly fishing in the region with continued reports of caught fish and happy anglers.
Weather outlook as of today show a steady increase in temperatures over next week. Barring any weather anomalies or cooling trends, we can look forward to seeing improved fishing conditions soon.
