Substantial visibility on all reaches of the Snake is making dry fly fishing the standard way to go at the moment.  PMDs and caddis dominate the surface, although there are still yellow sallies and a few golden stones about.  Large to moderately sized attrac...

Good to solid fishing on just about every reach as the Snake continues to gain more visibility each day with more than enough to offer decent dry fly fishing on the entire stream.  Not a lot of bruiser fish quite yet, but that should be coming in the next co...

With the Snake in runoff, the tailwater reach from Jackson Lake Dam down to Pacific Creek is the obvious choice, and it just opened to fishing this past Monday.  Flows are at a little over 3,000cfs and visibility is at three to four feet.  Cold water temps,...
