Fishing Report - 6.23.21
JD High Country Fishing Report 6-23-21
Flows are settling on the Snake and showing more signs of clearing. Water levels are down to around 7,000cfs in town. It is staring to fish but we're thinking in the next 5-10 days it should be good to go! Although water temperatures are still in a healthy range, look to fish early in the morning or later on in the afternoon to leave the hotter parts of the day for the fish to cool off! On the Snake there have been some caddis and goldenstones out and about or try small ants in purple and pink, they should do the trick. Don't forget about the Upper Snake above Jackson lake, it is another great spot to check out this time of year.
Down on the Hoback, fishing is very good right now! Salmonflies are still going strong, caddis flies, and yellow sallies are all over. The water is still a bit high but target the softer water and you should convert!

Smaller tributaries, like Pacific Creek are in great shape and gin clear. Try throwing drakes, small ants, or cripples.
Good fishing is to had down on the Green river as well. Look for grey drake spinners and PMDs mid morning, and yellow sallies and goldenstones mid to late afternoon. Green drakes have started to show on the lower sections. The river has about 4ft of visibility right now. Also FYI, Somers boat ramp is not accessible for the sumer season.
