950 CFS (South Leigh Creek)
The Teton is still in runoff mode. So, its high and off color. Streamers and nymphs will still work in the right spots.
Henry’s Fork of the Snake River:
725 CFS (Box Canyon) 1960 CFS (below Ashton)
The Henry’s Fork has the best dry fly opportunities right now. Up in Box Canyon, a Golden Stone dry with nymphs below it will produce nicely. Try a size 8 or 10 rubber legs or small tactical attractor nymphs (bullets and quills). There will be PMD’s the bottom half of the float. And Caddis. Below Ashton, there have been Goldens, Caddis, PMDs, Yellow Sallies, and Green Drakes. Also, dry/dropper rigs are producing nice fish; Golden drys to small tactical nymphs.
South Fork of the Snake River:
11,700 CFS (Irwin) 5,650 CFS (Lorenzo)
The South Fork is very clear for this time of year. Nymphing has been the best vehicle for catching fish. A Rubber legs to a small tactical attractor has been the ticket. The fish are on the drops, ledges, tailouts, etc. There has been some dry fly opportunities; mostly Midges and Baetis on cloudy days. It’s a great time to fish the SF because the clarity and lower flows are rare for this time of year. It’s a great time to fish!!!
