Snake River reports

nate bennett (tetonflyfishing) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Fishing from 12-3 is best on the Snake right now thanks to cold, short days. Right now fish are found primarily in deep, slow runs. Nymphs and midges are best. Streamers can also produce when water temps warm a bit... (11/16/15)
Jason Balogh (fish the fly travel) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Snake River
The Snake River through the Jackson Hole valley has remained consistent dry fly fishing since our last report.  Our fall stonefly, Claasenia Sabulosa, has begun to emerge in all sections and has kept the cutthroat looking up for big bugs, especially early and late in the day. Look for these to continue into September and twitch those flies! 
PMD’s and Little Yellow Stones are still popping around 11am and fish key in on them in those riffles where they are present in good numbers. Grasshoppers, Beetles, and Flying Ants are becoming more important on our warmer afternoons.  Rhyacophilia Caddis are out and about and give you another option for dry flies.  We will start looking for Timponoga Hecuba mayflies to emerge in the last part of this month on our cloudy days…
Best Flies: #8-10 Olive, Tan, Purple Water Walkers, #10-12 Red Fat Alberts, #16 Q’s Sparkle Stacker, #12-14 Lime PMX, #12 Yellow Stimmies, #12 Tan, Green Grand Hopper

Mmmmm, I love stoneflies!
Jason Balogh (fish the fly travel) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi held his annual fund raiser yesterday and Fish the Fly was proud to host the fishing portion of the event.  We had 14 boats spread out through the entire length of the Snake river from Grand Teton National Park all the way down to the whitewater section south of town.  This is our 4th year hosting this event and we look forward to next year!
Everyone had great time and fishing reports came back very solid for all stretches.  Our fall Claasenia Stonefly has begun its hatch on the whole river and this has the cutthroat chasing big bugs on the surface.  Localized PMD and Yellow Sally hatches are still important and fish will focus on them in certain areas where they are hatching.  A few pickier fish are eating Caddis and Beetles as well. Look for a more detailed report soon….
WY Senator Mike Enzi enjoys his fly fishing event in Jackson Hole!
Jason Balogh (fish the fly travel) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Snake River
Fly fishing on the Snake has been very good since our last report.  The Goldens have made their way upstream and can still be found between Pacific Creek and Moose.  PMD and Yellow Sallies hatches remain solid and keep the fish rising throughout the system.  Caddis have been important, especially early in the morning on our guided trips.  The nymphs of all three of these bugs have been the droppers (2′) under bugs like the #10 Chubby Chernobyl or Melon Belly.

Snake River descriptions

Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The Snake River flows from Yellowstone through Jackson Hole and Snake River Canyon and into Palisades Reservoir. Fly fishing on the Snake is excellent and anglers prefer to fish the large stream via floating although wading is doable. The Snake River is home to the awesome Snake River Cutthroat Trout which is indigenous to the river and naturally reproduces. Fly anglers enjoy the Snake because of the dry fly fishing action. The Snake River is a great place to bring a newbie because the large dries will catch fish. It is scenic and almost always produces. (08/20/08)
