Apply these techniques to improve your fly fishing experience.

As a fly shop manager, guide and avid fly fisherman for Three Rivers Ranch, I get asked countless questions on how to improve the experience of fly fishing in our area and beyond.  I have always loved sharing local knowledge as well as my own experiences regarding the illustrious sport of fly fishing for trout in our region.  I have also loved imparting information that helps the regular traveler and the professional alike.  Here are 10 ways that I have improved my own life when it comes to fly fishing.  I hope these aspects expand your own experience, I know they have for me: 1)  First and foremost, I think the best advice is:  Think for Yourself! I meet so many fly-fishermen and women that ask the most fundamental questions and they then start to tell me what they think.  Why?  Most fly fisher-people know more than they give themselves credit.  You have spent countless hours doing what we all love, take that experience and build upon it.  There is no “magic fly” and your knowledge of your local water is more important than any ‘shop guy’ telling you what to buy. 2)  Diversity:  “Have the kitchen sink” means less

South Fork of the Snake River Fishing Report – Sept 20

The latest South Fork of the Snake River fishing report was yesterday from Wolf to Heise & it was great news!  There were lots of fish between 14 and 19 inches.  We had big brown trout coming up and sipping dry flies as well. You could focus on: Pink Alberts, PMD’s, terrestrials were ok but the conditions were pretty cold.  There was a little Baetis hatch, but not for long.

Henry’s Fork Fishing Report – Sept 20

The Henry’s Fork has been fishing well, considering the weather.  The last few days have brought a light dusting of snow to the upper sections of the Henry’s Fork.  The main issue is wind.  The lower section of the Henry’s Fork (below Ashton) is more susceptible to wind than in the canyon section (Osbourne Bridge to Ashton). As for fishing, BWO’s are around!  Terrestrials are still crawling, but are waining, due to the weather.  Try a rusty spinner, or go with a streamer.

Teton River Fishing Report – Sept 4

The Teton River has been fishing great. We are right in the middle of dry fly heaven, so everything underneath the sun. Sulpher & pink mayflies are out in force. Mahogany mayflies are starting to show up as well. We still have caddis still bouncing around & of course, the terrestrials are all working awesome (ants, beetles, hoppers, etc.). For those of you that are not dry-fly anglers, streamers have been working as well. You pretty much need to take the kitchen sink with you. The fish are getting a lot of pressure, and they are getting a little picky. The water temperatures on the Teton River are lower than previous years due to the snowpack from last winter; this translates to better fishing for longer. Still, focus on fishing early in the morning (until about noon), then after 4-5pm to avoid the mid-day heat.

South Fork of the Snake River Fishing Report – Sept 4

The South Fork of the Snake River has been hanging in there, but it’s a little bit tougher than previous years. The river has been holding at around 9000cfs for the past week. The average at this time of year is around 7700cfs. Water clarity is excellent, and the flow forecasts are expected to stay put for the next week. Focus on the typical and obvious places; riffles, grassy banks, side-channels, etc. Hopper droppers are essential to success. They are still eating the top bug, but you’ll see more action with the dropper. Use: Split Backs, Jighead Pheasant-Tails, Jighead Hares-Ear, Zebra Midges, Micro-Mayfly; All colors of Chubby Chernobyls, & Waterwalkers. Also, use big & nasty streamer patterns; anything articulated in white, yellow, brown, etc. South Fork of the Snake River near Irwin SF Snake near Irwin - River Forecast The post South Fork of the Snake River Fishing Report – Sept 4 appeared first on TRR Outfitters.
