Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report- August 2, 2016

Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Report- August 2, 2016 
Currently our local fishing is in its Peak season and all our guides are reporting good consistent activity with only exception being afternoon slow downs due to hot afternoon air and water temps. Flows are stable on the Snake but area tribs are dropping to very low levels, this also includes regional rivers like the Green and Salt. The small rivers are floatable but marginally fishable for two anglers and afternoon fishing is not advisable, again due to warm water often reaching 70 degrees.
Hatches are fairly thin but several terrestrial options are happening, it is ant, hopper and beetle season! One hatch worth mentioning is our summer stone fly, aka the mutant stone or western brown stonefly. These stoneflies are active crawlers early in the day and the males are wingless and quite fast... twitch and skate your bug early for some fun grabs!
The South Fork has had a great July, here PMD's are stealing the show along with the mutant stone happening here as well.
Enjoy your summer fishing but remember to keep the water temps in mind, best to stop fishing from 2pm to 6pm until our weather changes, hopefully next week.
Always great to see friends fishing together, having a great time! This was our 4th Annual trip with the Crew from Livingston, MT- George & Jamie Anderson, Skip Herman, Carl Hiaasen, Dave Grusin, Michael Keaton, Tom Mcguane and Breon Robertson.
