Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Guide's Report- Firecracker fly fishing!

Super nice conditions lately with epic fly fishing all over the region, its time to get out!
Hatches are strong on every river within the greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, north-south, east-west. The bug soup is a mid-late morning mixture of caddis, pmd's, sallies, drakes(green and grey) and golden stones... if you are on the South Fork, there are salmonflies in the lower canyon(just below Heise on the 26th).

Our centerpiece fishery here in Jackson Hole, the Snake River, is dropping daily and is now clear enough to find sporadic action with wet flies and possibly a few dries in the riffle zones. Isoperlas(yellow sallies, little olive stones) and golden stones are the primary bugs found on the river this past week and likely into the early part of July-- yellow and olive stimulators are hard to beat, #12/14. Grey drakes are on the increase to the south in Sublette County and flows there are shaping up to be near perfect for the 4th.

Always keep a watchful eye for the daily bug, this nice sedge was found on the truck window while prepping the boat.
