South Fork of the Snake River Fishing Report April 27th, 2017

South Fork of the Snake River Trout

Thanks for checking in on this week’s fishing report.  Well, we woke up to several inches of snow on the ground here in Swan Valley.  Early reports today out the mountains report up to 3 feet!  It’s the winter that never ends. The weather is forecasted to dry out over the weekend so with some nicer weather rolling in fishing might be pretty good.

Not much to report different from last week as far as fishing and flies go.  The water is up from 14,000 cfs to 15,000 cfs which isn’t enough of a change to affect the fishing at this point.  Once again, as with previous reports this spring, focus on nymphing slower moving water.  Look for “soft spots” behind islands, riffles, logs, big eddies, backwaters, etc.  Top producing flies will be stonefly nymphs, san juan worms, egg patterns, and various small bead heads.  Don’t be afraid to throw a big dark streamer in a slow eddy or backwater.
