Reports from Area Lakes and Streams
Snake River Decent fishing upstream of Wilson Bridge but better and more consistent results are being found below Wilson and down to Sheep Gulch most days. Expect to see a smattering of PMDs and October caddis on warm, sunny days and BWOs and mahogany duns on cooler, wetter days. Surface action begins around 1pm most days regardless of weather, although moderately sized attractors will get into fish as early as 11pm in intermittent fashion. Target ledge rock pools (particula

This is especially the case on the lower reaches from Wilson Bridge down to Sheep Gulch.
