Guide Report:

We are well into our runoff season limiting the available water to fish.  If you are trying to stay close to town, the only place to find clean water on the Snake is from Jackson Lake Dam down to Pacific Creek.  Fishing midge patterns or flashy streamers has been working well with some fish coming up for the occasional dry.  Heading south to the Green River will be everyone’s go to during this time and doing so can produce some of the biggest fish all year.  Small San Juan worms in a burgundy color have proven to be very effective during the prime window right when flows begin to drop and the river starts to clear.
