South Fork of the Snake River Fishing Report 6/27/24

Flows this week have been a bit up and down as water managers try to match the inflow and outflow to keep Palisades at 100% for as long as possible. As of right now, the flow sits at 13,300 cfs with a scheduled drop of 600 cfs coming today. We are starting to get our first whispers of dry flies hatching on the lower river below Heise. A few Green Drakes and PMDs are hatching in the afternoons, which means the big Salmon Flies are not far off and will be here any day now.

Big stonefly nymphs are producing some aggressive eats, so we all know what is coming. Be prepared with your size 2 and 4 black or brown rubberlegs trailed with your favorite dropper to imitate a Green Drake, PMD, or Little Yellow Sally nymph. I’d also pack some big foam Salmon Flies and some unweighted rubberlegs to trail those bad boys.

When the “big bugs” do fly, remember to pack your patience, as boat ramp and river etiquette will require it. It’s a big river, and we’re all out there to enjoy it together. Have fun out there, be safe, and be kind.
