Jackson Hole Fall Fly Fishing
My guiding season has finally started to slow down here and I've been able to fish a little bit on my own. We've had some crazy winter weather in the area recently with cold temps, lots of precipitation, and lots of wind. I was fortunate enough to go out fishing with some good clients a few days ago and we had some excellent fishing. The weather was incredibly windy but we did find some fish, including some large fish, podded up. The fish were eating both large and small dry flies and nymph droppers. One of my guys, on his first day every fly fishing, did catch a true 20 inch cutty on a dry fly. It was an awesome fish and amazingly fat. Congrats Alex! That was the last guide trip I've taken. A buddy and I did go fish a special river on tuesday and had an awesome day! The water was so low that floating was a lot of work but the fishing was pretty darn good. It was all nymph fishing but its tough to complain when you're catching fish from 14-22 inches. I'm currently visiting my folks down in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and plan to do some fishing with my dad. We're gonna fish both tomorrow and Saturday even though the weather looks awful at the moment. Hopefully I'll have some good pictures to post after this trip!
