Post St. Patty's South Fork

Just fished the south fork for a day on thursday. We got on the river by about 11am and were met with some pretty poor weather conditions. It was cold and windy for most of the day which made the fishing pretty poor. Nymphing was the name of the game and when the sun came out later in the day our fishing did pickup a little. Some buddies of mine went over to fish the Henry's Fork and met with pretty similar results to us. One of the guys did get a 21.5 inch brown that made the day though. With the current snowpack and weather conditions fishing should really be picking up here soon. We're probably gonna have a very early season with june being exceptional. I look forward to seeing you out here

Spring Fishing

I spent Thursday and Friday of this week digging my boat out and taking a fishing trip with my buddies the VanGilders. It was great to be back in the boat again. The fishing was good, the weather was great, and i can't explain how much i missed floating the rivers. I also ran into my buddy Marty, who i hadn't seen since his new zealand trip, on the river. It was great to catch up with marty and hear about how his new zealand trip went. Most of the fish we caught were rainbows with a couple nice browns. It was almost entirely nymph fishing as the water temp is still very cold. The best flies were san juan worms and small BWO nymphs. Its good to be fishing again and i'll try and have some more fishing reports in the near future.

Its March

Well spring is starting to show in the valley. the temps have been very high recently and there has been alot of snowmelt. The snake has started to fish very well midday but as of right now the skiing is still good at upper elevations. Based on the current snowpack i would expect fishing to start to pickup in late may and really start to come into its own in June. I'll be fishing this wednesday and thursday so i should have some new pics from the trip to post later this week.
