Eastern Idaho Fly Fishing Report – December 2018

South Fork of the Snake River Flows: ~ 900 CFS at Irwin,  ~1300 CFS at Heise Winter has settled in, but with the current Winter flows on the South Fork of the Snake River it has opened up the river to really accessible wading opportunities. Remember to look for your Winter holding spots for trout and not the places you would fish in the summer. Long flats after large bends are some of the best winter fishing spots to key in on.  Nymphing has been the most productive application. You will see midges coming off during the temperature variances of the day, especially if its overcast/cloudy.  Nymphing small rubber legs, zebra midges, small tactical nymphs, and egg patterns will be the most productive patterns.  Remember that getting down to where the fish are holding is paramount so you may need to use a more substantial point fly or split shot in combination with your small nymphs.  If you enjoy streamer fishing, make sure to use a slow retrieve in Winter instead of a more active strip that you would use during spring, summer, and fall.

Eastern Idaho Fly Fishing Report – October 2018

Late fall is in full swing here in Eastern Idaho.  The weather has changed & the Indian summers have given way for October fishing. The key to having a great day is to dress in layers and bring your baetis box. We’re targeting little fall bugs on the  Henry’s Fork,  South Fork of the Snake, and  Teton River. Baetis & October caddis are both being targeted on all three rivers.  If you’re fishing the South Fork of the Snake River we’re also using the occasional grasshopper using the hopper/dropper technique. Subsurface is also highly productive using Zebra Midges #14-18 (black, red, & chocolate), and little pheasant tails (#18-20) for nymphing.  We’ve been having the most success with black & olive colored streamers. Have fun & fish on!

Henrys Fork, SF Snake, & Teton Fly Fishing Report – June 27, 2018

WE ARE HERE! The fishing season for 2018 has kicked off in style and timing. Most watersheds are right on schedule for the middle of June and reports are coming in very positive. Let’s discuss a few of the favorites. The good news is that The South Fork of the Snake has finally started fishing (remember last year? We are an entire month early!) The SF Snake River has experienced ups and downs, regarding the flows, and as of a week ago, they dropped the river to 13,000 CFS. The Palisades Reservoir is hovering at 100% which is why they bumped the flows up to 17,000  CFS (cubic feet per second) yesterday to do some damage-control. I have heard of many guides and private people seeing a ton of Salmon flies on the lower section and up through Conant, so we should see them up top within the week. Golden Stones will also follow this hatch during the next three weeks. The great thing during the next several weeks is that the green drake will also be busting! The Henrys Fork of the Snake River has been the name of the game during the past month. It has been fishing wonderfully

New City, New Water: an angler moves to Boise, Idaho

After living, fishing and guiding in the front range of the beautiful state of Colorado for 16 years the family and I thought it was time to leave the craziness of the Denver metropolitan area. Time to leave the crowded waters of the South Platte drainage. Time to leave the crowded race track and endless traffic jams of the I-70 and I-25 corridor. We thoroughly enjoyed the Colorado lifestyle and have cherished memories and friends there. We set our sights on something a little slower paced. As a family, we decided on the Boise area. It was smaller than Denver, and we had visited a few times and believed it would be a great place to raise our family of 3 kids. Plus we had friends who already lived here that had moved from Denver 6 years earlier. I was excited about our new family adventure and to be hitting new water! The moving truck came and went, and we found ourselves settling into a friendly neighborhood in Eagle, Idaho. Very close to the north channel of the Boise River. The river winds its way west from Lucky Peak through downtown Boise, thru Eagle and eventually running into the Snake
