One Fly 2013

We just finished up the One Fly tournament here in Jackson. The fishing was tough due to water conditions, the Buffalo fork turned the water muddy. My groups did quite well. The first day's group did decent but the second day's group killed it! I was lucky enough to guide one of my fellow guides, Trey Sharpe, who had a great day and fished a streamer amazingly well. In the end Trey ended up getting 3rd place overall. Here are some pictures from the past week. Hopefully it won't rain too much tonight and we'll have another great day tomorrow.

September 1st

Fishing has been picking up on the Snake River. Snake drakes, mahongany mayflies, and september stonflies are the name of the game. The water is still relatively high for this time of year but the fishing has been quite good. Just today we caught one of the largest cuttthroat trout I've even caught in the snake river. This fish was 20.r inches long and probably weighed in the range of 4 lbs. The fish ate a large stonefly dry fished in about a foot of water. Most of the other rivers in the area are fishing poorly. The Green river and new fork rivers are too low to fish and the south fork, while fishing well in the mornings, is not fishing well later in the day. Fall is arriving and lower nighttime temps should improve the midday fishing.
