I'm sorry to make this brief but I haven't had much time to post recently because I've been so busy. Fishing in the area has been stellar, we've had great dry fly activity and I haven't had to use an indicator nymphing rig in quite a while. Most rivers are fishing well at this point, the Snake has been very good up near the dam and is clearing up further down. Here are a few pictures from the past week, some of the larger fish are up to 21.5 inches long.

Fishing in the area is finally starting to catch fire. The South fork is fishing very well,The Salt is excellent, the Green is on fire, and the Snake is finally starting to clear and fish. There are some many options at this time of year... its truely one of my favorite times to be guiding. We've had some excellent fishing days recently and caught some great fish. I was on the Salt with Lew Ofstein and caught some amazing fish entirely on dries. I've also had some excellent fishing on other rivers the past week or so. Take a look at these two pictures and the scar on this 21.5 inch rainbow's tail... think it's the same fish? This same client also landed a 23.5 inch rainbow, the second time I've landed this fish, but unfortunately droppped the fish before a good picture was taken. I've included a picture of the fish being netted, Kirk trying to lift the fish, and what the fish would have looked like. Its a shame we didn't get a good picture but with was still and amazing catch! I hope to have the next day or two off here so hopefully I'll get to go spend some time fishing with friends. Hopefully I'll have some good new pictures in the next few days.

Things are picking up here in the Jackson area. The Green and south Fork have both been fishing very well with good hatches of just about everything. The Green has yellow sallies, grey drakes, golden stones, caddis and PMDs. The South Fork has all of those same hatches but also has salmonflies. Unfortunately the South Fork has been fishing better with nymphs than with dries and has been very crowded. I just had a great two days with some folks that flew down from Big Timber, MT. They were great company and some very good fishermen. Here are a few pictures from the past few days, the largest fish is a rainbow that was a little bit over 21 inches, caught on a greay drake dry fly pattern.
