Hard to believe it is already May and conditions are still holding up on many drainages! We had a mini runoff a couple weeks ago that put the fish and bugs down for a week or so but now we are back with super nice afternoons and pretty damn good fishing up and down the valley. With the nice weather however, the snow melt increases and flows should be off color in a couple days.
Don't be too bummed just yet, our hottest lake fishing is here with area lakes icing off as we speak, not to mention area tailwaters are getting better as flows warm and bugs are on the move. Still seeing some skwallas and now some grannom caddis, Mother's Day of course!
|Josh Gallivan and I hitting the water hard this Spring, here on the lower Green in Wyoming.|
Flows are still flat and stable on the Green drainages but this changes as we begin to see warmer nights over the next week or two. Fishing here is good but can be sporadic and flows are cold... think slow and deep, they are in there!
South Fork is reporting cold flows that are around 10K. Rainbows are on redds but the state of Idaho wants them gone so I will hold back my usual mindfulness comments. What a shame, its the hottest fish in the river.
Stay tuned as we hit the lakes hunting morels and trophy macs!
|Way to go mate!|
|Introducing Cutty, my new spaniel mix... his first outing was a huge success!|
|Snake River doubles are common in April, what an epic place and time of year!|
|Tomorrow we are off to Black Foot for some of the best carp fishing on the Planet, so far the weather looks great, stay tuned!|
