9/6/11 – Snake River, Fish Creek, and Buffalo Fork

Beauty w/ a beast!

The fishing the past week or so has consistently gotten better.  The water in the Jackson Hole area is clearing by the day and water levels are dropping to ideal fishing levels.  Hatches have also increased with heavy emergences of PMD’s, caddis, and BWO’s starting up.  Rowing the Snake has kept me on my toes because as the water levels drop some channels are becoming hard to float down.  Fishing all around has been great and many fish in the 20″(measured) category have been brought to net.  There is nothing like stalking a actively feeding monster cuttie in less than a foot of water!  And we have had quite a few opportunities to do so lately.  This is the kind of fishing that really puts your presentation skills to the test.  This coming week I will be back in Michigan for a week of trips but then back to Wyoming for another couple before Salmon and Fall Steelhead kicks in back in Michigan.  Too many fish too little time. -Jay Allen
