January Thaw= January Fly Fishing

The roller coaster weather continues as we have gone from sub-zero temps to near 40 degrees and valley rain. This can be hard on the avid skier's mindset as we prefer the dry powder snow but the ardent winter angler can cash in big during mid-winter warming trends.
If water temps pop up a few degrees its possible to see sparse midge activity in the early afternoon and if you can find winter lies that are still you may see a cold nose or two break the surface.
Teton Park is a visual paradise in the winter but is largely off limits to travel for winter wildlife habitat. The best venues for consistent winter angler in and around Jackson Hole can be found on the Henry's Fork and South Fork of the mighty Snake River. You generally can have the river to yourself and catch a ton of whitefish and maybe a few hefty trout!
