The Snake is still fishing great. Dry fly action with stonefly patterns, caddis, and PMDs has been fantastic. The tricos are just starting on both the Snake and Green rivers and should provide some excellent technical dry fly fishing. Most of my trips recently have been on the Snake River with some quality fishing and a few more large fish starting to show up. I haven't been to the Green in the past week but it should be starting to pick up as the water levels drop and both the tricos and yellow sallies get going.

Fishing has been great recently with much of the best action being on the Snake River. It's full on dry fly season at this point with only the occasional nymph dropper. The best combo has been a larger stonefly dry with a smaller mayfly or caddis imitation off the back. My apologies for the brief update, I'll try to get a more detailed one out soon. Thanks to Shelby Stone for sending these pictures from his family's trip on the Snake river with me.

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! I was fortunate enough to have a good buddy in from out of town and my family visiting from Colorado. I was able to take my buddy JB and my father out fishing for a few days, something that we don't get to do as often as I would like. Fortunately our fishing was very good. We had excellent dry fly sight fishing for some quality browns and rainbows. As far as the rivers go, the Snake ans Salt rivers have been fishing really well with both dries and nymph droppers. The fishing has been getting better on a daily basis and we're starting to catch some bigger fish. The rivers flows have been great recently and the fishing should continue to improve as long as the flows remain stable. The Green is still fishing well with a consistent gray drake and PMD hatch, but the water is beginning to warm up later in the day. This means we've been getting on the river earlier in the day and getting off a little earlier after the fishing has slowed down and the water has warmed up. This way we're hitting the prime fishing times and avoiding stressing the fish when the water gets up in the upper 60 degree range.
