Comments:

The Bureau of Rec has completed its drawdown of the flow out of Jackson Dam, and the river is running low and clear, which means lots of wading access and good fishing. Continued mild weather has also helped, and the best fishing on the Snake and area tributaries is typically being found late morning through mid-afternoon.

Fishing on the lakes in Grand Teton National Park is improving again as cooler water temps move fish back up into shallower water. Streamers are the way to go, targeting drop-offs. Get out and enjoy it while it’s still open!

We are offering reduced rates on our 1/2 day and full day guided trips for the rest of the season. Please give us a call to book a fall float on the Snake River – (307) 733 – 7210.
