Big News

I just recently accepted a job with the Teton County School District as a special education paraprofessional. This means that as of August 25th I will be unavailable to guide during the week, but will still be available on weekends. I'm very excited about this new job position but I still love guiding and plan to continue to guide during the summers. I've spent the past few days guiding and doing some fishing on my own. The fishing continues to be excellent and should continue this way for a long time to come. Here are a few pictures from a day on the south fork with some buddies...

Day Off

Here are a few pictures from a day off that I had recently. A buddy and I just did a quick little fishing trip here in the valley and caught alot of nice cutties rising to PMD's and some eating PMD nymphs right below the surface. With the current temperatures , Fall should be coming to the valley soon and this should kick of some great stonefly and mahogany hatches.

Fishing has continued to be excellent this past week. The bite has turned into more of a morning bite with it tapering off a little bit in the late afternoon. This may change though with a recent cold snap we've experienced. I've been guiding primarily on the snake in the park and most of our fish have been coming on a variety of dry flies. Very little nymphing this time of year. I'll be on the South Fork tomorrow so I'll let you know how that goes. Here are a few pictures from the past week.

Fishing continues to be excellent on the snake and the south fork. The snake in the park has be fantastic recently with lots of nice fish being caught, usually on big dry flies. Sorry to make the report short but I've got a trip in the morning. Here are a few pictures from the past few days...

Well fishing on the snake is really picking up, the south fork is slowing down a little bit, and a number of our other rivers are fishing well. The snake in the national park seems to be the place to be right. The big fish are showing up with increasing frequency and the dry fly fishing has been excellent. I did have a trip on the south fork on Aug 2nd and it was good but just not up to the level that it was in mid july. The pmd's were still around but not in full force. Here are a few pictures from the past week.

Flat Creek Opener

Check out this pig that my client Bob Barone caught on a big dry fly on the opening day of flat creek. The fish weighed 4.25 pounds and was somewhere around 22 inches. This was the biggest of the day but we did stick a number of other good fish in addition to this one.
