|The last week brought beautiful spring days to the Tetons. This weather kicked the spring runoff into full gear, trashing area waters and putting fly fishing the Snake and its tributaries on hold for a few weeks. Because it's been so sunny and warm, I'm thinking rivers will clear and start fishing earlier than first thought. Despite this, there are still plenty of places to wet a line; the most obvious being area lakes.
Many of our lakes fish best in the spring and offer anglers the chance to sight-cast to cruising trout. In fact, while we were fishing a sand flat last week, I couldn't help but feel like we were fishing for bonefish; casting in front of moving fish and getting their attention with a twitched fly. Very cool! Expect the lakes to fish well for a while, with smaller, higher altitude lakes becoming a destination once snow melts and ice comes off.
