October 25th, 2017


With the recent drop in temperatures and the flows from Jackson lake slowing to their winter levels, fall fishing is in full swing for the valley. The Jackson Lake dam has reduced their flows to their winter levels and will level out around 500 CF.S. by October 17th.  Also, plan on the floats taking longer.

Trout are migrating down from tributaries to their wintering grounds in the Snake river. Mornings are slow with the cooler temperatures but as the afternoon warms up the dry fly is very good. BWOs and Mahoganies are still the staple for dry fly and there are great chances to sight cast to nice fish. Parachutes, emergers and comparaduns are very productive. Midges will get into the mix as well. Prior to afternoon hatches small mayfly nymphs can good.

Streamers are another option and can produce during the day.

The Brown trout fishing will start happening as the days get shorter and cooler. The Green, upper Snake, Salt, Lewis and Firehole will have browns moving up to spawn.. Keep your eye on weather and get after them!
