Springtime on the Snake
4/17: Greg VanGilder and I spent an afternoon floating the Snake from Wilson to South Park today. The fishing was great on streamers throughout the day with a number of nice fish in the 12-18'' range being hooked and landed. Dry flies were also fishing well early on in the float. We fished gnats and small renegade patterns to small pods of rising fish, primarily during the first few hours of the trip. These pods of fish were easy to catch and would usually take on the first or second drift. All in all it was a great spring day with excellent weather and some great early season fishing.
