Fishing Report - July 23, 2019
With clarity picking up around the region and tributaries slowing to a summer pace, fishing is shaping up and looking better as the summer settles in for 2019.
Tributaries such as Pacific, Buffalo, Spread and Gros Ventre river flows are close to matching historical averages and the Jackson Lake dam stays steady for almost two weeks at 2340 CFS. All markers for settling waters and good summer conditions!
As always, the weather, time of day and water temps will play key roles in productive days.
Be ready for a hatch with elk hair cadis, stimulators, yellow sallies or an Adams variant. For prospecting try a Water Walker, mini Circus Peanut or Chubby Chernobyl with a dropper such as a lightning bug, copper john or bead head nymph pattern. For the streamer fans try a mini dungeon, woolly bugger, leech pattern or a JJ’s special.
The Green has seen a rollercoaster of water this season. Productive days have been hit or miss considering the fluctuations in flows. The grey drakes on top have been the story for the past few weeks. Girdle bugs, wiggle worms or streamers work in right conditions if the top-water action slows.
