Green and New Fork Fishing Report

 Green River Fishing report New fork brown trout

Pinedale WY New Fork Brown Trout

Our Jackson Hole fly fishing guides report current Pinedale Wyoming fishing conditions.  The Pinedale fishing report includes Green River fishing conditions, as well as New Fork River fishing conditions.

The Pinedale, Wyoming area is home to many streams and lakes. Highlights are the  Green River and the New Fork. The Green is a great river for all, while the New Fork is for the more seasoned angler, 12 hour days are not uncommon. These smaller and lesser known fisheries offer some of the best Brown Trout fishing in our region.   The Green River is a much smaller river than the infamous Snake River, what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with with the quality of the fishery.  The Green River originates in the Wind River Mountain range and flows all the way through Wyoming until in enters Utah in the Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The Green River flows through ranch land and sagebrush fields that are home to moose, mule deer, antelope and birds of many species. It offers a variety of species of trout, including cutthroat, rainbow, the hybrid cutt-bow, brown and brook trout. The season on the Green usually begins a month prior to the water clearing on the Snake, in mid-June.

  Snake (Jackson Hole): Hold the phone, cause its dropping!! Since our last report flows throughout the snake river system have been dropping and clarity continues to improve. Flows out of Jackson Lake Dam are 2500, which is the target flow for the summer, very similar to 2016 flows in July. We have been floating from the Dam to Pacific...... read more

Stillwater: Our area lakes are still fishing well, and can provide an exciting day on the water. The surface water is getting warmer and fish can be found near the surface eager to eat dry flies. Lewis and Yellowstone lakes are great options if you are willing to drive. Closer to home, Phelps and Jenny lake are both fishing with dries and small...... read more

The fishing on the Snake here in the Jackson Hole Valley continues to be the best fishing in the area. We have had a few nights of weather below 32 degrees which has kept the water temperatures between 55-60 degrees, great news for the fishing. With these cooler days we have been seeing that the fishing isn't really picking up until about 9-10am,...... read more

The fishing on the Snake has been very productive this past week with both beginners and experienced anglers having great success. While many of the fish are smaller in size, they more than make up for it with their numbers. With that being said, we are beginning to see more and more big fish landed every day. At this point in the summer the fish...... read more

Memorial Day weekend turned out to be a good one. Plenty of nice weather, and a lot of good fishing for Yellowstone’s opening weekend. Some of our guides headed up to Yellowstone to fish the lakes, and the Firehole River opening day. We had great reports from both water systems.  The Firehole was a little late with bugs hatching due to the cold...... read more

  Summer is here and in full force. All area rivers in Jackson Hole are fishing and the boat ramps are busy.  Temperatures in the valley have been warm and mostly stable in the high 80’s during the day peaking at around 94 in some areas and cooling down in the evenings to low 50’s.  This has gotten the bug activity in action...... read more

After a long May with much needed moisture, summer feels like it is finally here. Most rivers in the local Jackson Hole area are high and muddy, but we still have some decent reports from other rivers within a short drive.  The Lakes in Yellowstone, high mountain streams, and the South Fork of the Snake have all been fishing pretty well, while...... read more

Jackson Hole Fishing Report 5/26   The Snake's run off is well on its way with flows being measured at 6930 cfs in Moose this afternoon.  If the weekend forecast holds true flows should increase even more as warmer temperatures will speed up the snow melt process. There are still fishing options in the area. The South Fork of the...... read more

Trout Fishing South Fork of the Snake River

July 9th, 2014

The last couple weeks have been very warm, but looks like we could get some cooler temperatures with some afternoon storms in the forecast. This has accelerated the snow melt, but has also made current fishing conditions tough. Just under the Jackson lake Dam flows have increased up to 2520 CFS. With the increased flows and warm weather the...... read more

The Season is upon us. Clear skies and warm weather is expediting the snow melt. We have still got a couple of weeks till the Snake is ready, but by the end of the month it should start fishing. We've had some positive feedback from some of our guides recently.  Although clarity is not optimal, we have had some success with tandem nymph rigs...... read more

The Snake River is still high, and muddy while our run off is still in full swing. The best stretch on the Snake would be our tail water stretch dam to Pacific creek, where the flows out of Jackson Lake is at a steady 1,800 cfs.  The water is not clear, but is certainly not muddy, making it a decent option in the Jackson Hole area right...... read more

The Green River has been fantastic! Dry flies and nymphs can produce some real nice fish.  We are coming up on the time of year when the flow on the Green is dropping consistently so the window of opportunity is dwindling. Early mornings are best to beat the heat. ... read more

July 11th, 2013

The Green has been fishing great lately, but we are starting to see the water level come down, which means there is not much time left this summer for it to be fishing well.  Our guides are reporting that the fishing has been great in the morning, but usually slows down in the afternoon around 1:00; however, cloudy afternoons have allowed for...... read more

June 29th, 2013

Over the past few days, we have been watching the flows on the Green rise once again, with the current reading as of 9 AM at 1160 CFS and rising.  We have had reports that the river has muddied up a bit, but on the bright side, the new surge in runoff triggered by the recent heat wave  will hopefully allow for a longer season on the Green....... read more

The Green River in Pinedale has continued to drop from the recent spike and now flows at a manageable 726 cfs (4:38 pm). We are currently running trips on most sections of the river with success, both dry flies and wet are appropriate for these conditions, dependent on the daily hatch. As of now, grey drakes and goldenstones seem to be the bugs in...... read more

June 15th, 2013

As of this afternoon, the Green River is at 1580 CFS, which is down from the 2000 CFS reading we saw a few days ago.  This is great news for anglers who are anxious to get back out on the Green, as it should be worthwhile to fish in the next 3-5 days!  If the river drops the way we are predicting it will, get ready to see some grey drake,...... read more

June 11th, 2013

The warm weather we are having has brought up the water levels on many of our area rivers, and the Green is no exception.  Flows as of 6/11 at 1790 and appear to be rising.  It should stabilize soon and return to fishable levels in the next couple of weeks.  Check with us at the shop or our fishing reports for changes.  This is a picture of...... read more

July on the Green was a blast.  We had good water levels, hungry fish and a lot of happy clients.  As we enter August, the fishing is still productive, but you may encounter a lull in the hottest part of the day.  The hoppers are out and the fish are looking for them along the deeper cut banks.  Find some shady cover and you will likely find...... read more

July 14th, 2012

This hot weather has done both good and bad things for the green river. On the good side it has really helped to wake up the bug life in the Pinedale area. There are many different hatches that the angler has to choose from. Most fish are still keyed in on grey drake patterns as well as big foam while we are seeing that others are moving towards...... read more

June 16th, 2012

It is going to be a fun year on the Green River.  This year we have more normal water conditions than last year and should see the Green fish very well after a few years of high water.  Currently the flows at Warren Bridge are 1,340 CFS, this is up a couple hundred cfs since earlier in the week.  The clarity is relatively good for this flow and...... read more
