Jackson Hole Fishing Report | August 31st, 2023
As it begins to feel a little more like fall, the fishing on the Snake has been good. Water temperatures have begun to cool, we’re seeing highs of 63° F, and lows of 58° F. The gauge in the canyon above Palisades Reservoir is reading 4000 cfs.
On the surface, fish are liking big foam like Water Walkers and Circus Peanuts. Tie on a beadhead nymph if you’re not seeing rises to the surface. Streamers have also been seeing a lot of success (think Sparkle Minnow or Dolly Llama).
The Salt is fishing great right now. Water is cold, and flows have been around 645 cfs at the gauge near Etna. Recommended flies include Hoppers, beadhead nymphs, Duracell, and Hopper John. Bites on the streamer have been slow.
The Green is low currently– around 330 cfs at the gauge at Warren Bridge– but has also been cooling down. With colder nights water temps are better than they have been recently. As temperatures continue to cool we hope to spend more time fishing the Green.
