October 25th, 2013
The fishing has continued to be excellent in the area. The Snake River is fishing very well with streamers, nymphs, and dry flies midday. We're still getting hatches of blue wings and midges during the day that are bringing the trout to the surface. I was just floating the Snake on Thursday, the day after the government finally reopened the parks, with some fellow guides and we really beat them up with streamers. We caught lots of cutties in the 14-18 inch ranges and I was lucky enough to get one big fat brown that came in at 22 inches. It was excellent weather and an excellent day of fishing. I spent the past four days on our final guide's trip of the year. This is when all of our guides get together for one rowdy fishing weekend and its the last time many of us will get to fish together for the season. We had an awesome trip with great baetis hatches, tons of rising fish, and even some really good sight nymphing. The trip was an awesome way to end the season. I'll be posting a little more about it once I get some of the pictures from the other guys. Here's one picture taken by Jeff Currier (www.jeffcurrier.com) of a nice rising rainbow. This picture pretty much sums up how the fishing was.
