The South Fork of the Snake – Fishing well! On the banks try Golden Stones or stop into one of our fly shop’s and try Head Guide, Doug Gibson’s Michigan Hopper. Also try Chubby Chernobyl’s. In the ripples we’re seeing them rise to PMD’s and first thing in the morning and evening try Caddis and flying ants. The water temp has been around 60 degrees, which is a good temp for insects. Once it gets a little warmer we’ll see those prime hatches take off.
Perhaps one of the best ways to fish the South Fork of the Snake is with an experienced, veteran Three River Ranch guide! The canyon section is by far one of my favorite floats. Those who have yet to see or experience it, should put it on your summer bucket list.
