Snake River fishing report 3/29/12

March 29th, 2012

It is hard to believe it is the end of March and we are already experiencing good dry fly fishing on the Snake River.  The weather for the past couple of weeks has been perfect for our early spring fishing.  With temperatures in the 40’s and low 50’s the fish are active and looking for food.  Streamer fishing has been surprisingly productive with smaller, sparce streamers retrieved slowly.  Everyone has their personal favorites, but, wooly buggers in size 6-10 in a variety of colors, black and olive, will get the fishes attention.  We are seeing a large number of dries that the fish are keying in on in the mid day hours, between 12 – 4.  Midges and the small winter black stonefly are what you will find, and you will find fish podded up lazily sipping them during the warmest part of the day.  There is easy walk in access at the Wilson and Sout Park bridges.  As the weather stays nice the fishing should continue to be good.  Come by the shop and we will show you some patterns.  Have fun!
