Fishing around Jackson has come into its own lately. Just about every river and stream is fishing great right now, with clear water and eager fish. I've been out with folks, fishing numerous places.
The Green continues to fish well with grey drakes and yellow sallies. Mornings are best, but fish have been rising throughout the day to well presented dries.
The Snake is clear and full of rising cutthroat trout. We're currently seeing lots of smaller fish (6-12") take PMDs, golden stones and yellow sallies in the riffles. Hot weather has also brought the first of many hoppers out, and it won't be long until we are fishing bigger patterns. I suspect that larger fish will start feeding on the surface shortly....
The Dubois area is also coming into it's own. The Wind river is clear and fish can be fooled with nymphs and hatch appropriate dry flies. Tributaries in the area are all good options for the adventurous angler (just be sure to pack your bear spray and mosquito repellent). Look for some great hatches in the evening.
Here are a few pictures from the past couple weeks:
David caught a beautiful rainbow on the green; fooled it with a well placed rusty spinner.
