Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Guide Report- March Madness 2013

 Whoever coined the saying March Madness got it right! Outside of NCAA basketball the cliche still applies quite regularly this time of year. Here in Jackson Hole the weather can turn on a dime and usher in the spring awakening with remarkable changes in people and local wildlife in just a few days. In the Spring life is anxious to get started, whereas in the fall it is reluctant to lie down.

The weather trends have many anglers hitting their favorite river with amazing catches up and down the  valley on both sides. Midges and streamers are still the prime fair but the dry fly fishing is top notch mid-day. Our trout are podded up in slower riffles, sometimes quite shallow and out in the open. The osprey are showing up so I expect to see the trout dropping back to deeper lies as the charges from above increase. Flows are low and gorgeous, the mud is still weeks away so get out and enjoy the fruits of Global Warming!

Lastly, with great pride and relief, I can say we finally closed our deal with Jack Dennis Fishing Trips! The legendary outfitter has retired and passed his knowledge, expertise, valued permits and fly fishing excellence down to his senior guides, myself and Mark Fuller. We will have an official launch in the coming days so stay tuned...
