Fall conditions rushed into the region earlier in September and has not yet released its grip to allow for any pleasant Indian Summer cycle to settle in, therefore our nice days have been few but the clouds and cool weather have encouraged some strong hatches and the trout are happy and relaxed. Flows have dropped on the Snake River over the past two weeks and are now at low winter levels(300cfs). The best window locally here in Jackson Hole is from about 11am to 4pm with BWO's and mahoganies making up the primary bug du jour. This will give way to midges as temps drop sharply in the next few weeks. Before and after the hatch small PT's and slow streamers will get the job done.
Thanks for tuning in, more fall pics and notes soon!
