Weather in the area has taken a turn for the worst here in the past week or so. We had a serious winter storm roll through this past week that deposited 48inches of snow in the tetons. Despite this weather, fishing has continued to be good when the weather is right. Recent trips to the south fork have been decent, with only a few fish being caught but the average size being excellent and many of the fish still eating dry flies. Here are some pics from the past week or so.

I've got some buddies who have recently started a fly fishing company that you guys might be interested in. The company is called Cheeky Fly Fishing and they're soon to release a great looking large arbor fly reel. These guys have spent a ton of time designing this reel and I'm excited to see the finished product. Check out their website at www.cheekyflyfishing.com and see what ya think.
I spent the weekend of October 9th fishing with my dad. He drove up and we did some fishing in the jackson area. The weather was rainy and nasty on saturday but the fishing was pretty good with a solid baetis hatch coming off. Most fish came on nymphs but a number of the fish ate smaller dry flies in the riffles. The second day was sunny and beautiful with the fishing being excellent early in the day and a little slower later in the day. The fish were eating dries but were tucked amazingly far up into cover. We did manage some good fish on baetis and hopper patterns though. It was a great trip overall and it was nice to do some fishing with my dad.

The weather has been wonderful up here recently. I found a new place to fish over this past week... it doesn't have many fish but it does have some really big fish. Greg, Brad, and I spent two days over there and caught some pigs. The big rainbow in the picture weighed in at 5.5 pounds and wasn't even the biggest fish we caught. Greg managed to catch the biggest cutthroat trout I've ever seen but dropped it as we were getting ready to take some pictures. I didn't get accurate measurements but on the net measurements it looked like about 27 inches and extremely fat. It was all streamer fishing but there were some decent hatches of baetis and tricos around midday. I hope you are all enjoying the great fall weather where ever you are.
