Fall has arrived in the Western Wyoming mountains with a gorgeous blanket of white over the Tetons, Wind River and Gros Ventre ranges. The recent rain and snow have recharged many tribs and smaller rivers of the area and fall fishing is in full swing. With cooler flows we are seeing fair BWO hatches and many days the streamer bite is hot. The Snake River is scheduled to drop over 1200cfs in the next week and another 1200cfs the week after, reaching winter flows around 4oocfs by October 11.
On top of some great fly fishing the wildlife viewing on or near the river has been excellent. Bears, moose, bison and elk are spotted regularly, time to get out there!
|This grizzly took his time strolling along the park road near Pacific Creek... if fishing in GTNP's small creeks it is recommended to carry bear spray.|
|This handsome brown fell for a late season hopper on the Green River just after a thunderstorm passed through.|
