Jackson Hole Fishing Report | September 7th, 2023

Home Regional Jackson Hole Fishing Report | September 7th, 2023

Snake

Maybe, consider fishing a different river this weekend. A storm that inundated the area last weekend caused the Hoback River and the Buffalo Fork to blow out. Although it is quickly regaining clarity, lots of pressure this upcoming weekend with the annual One Fly fishing competition might gain you sour looks from guides in the competition, if you find yourself on their section.

Either way, the Snake, at the gauge above Alpine, reads 4060 cfs, dropping after a spike on the 5th from the storm in the region. High water temp yesterday was at 59° F, and 57° F this morning. For the next week weather conditions look great for fishing; Partly overcast, mid 70°s in the daytime, 40°s at night, keeping fish happy with lower temps. 

Salt

The Salt was hit by the same storm that affected most rivers in the area. Flows are currently at 670cfs, coming down from a spike. Water temps are getting cooler as night temperatures have been in the 40°s and are predicted to stay that way for the next week. Mid 70°s in the day should keep hoppera active, so consider fishing big foam. Hopper droppers have been quite successful. 

Green

The Green and New Fork are fishing excellently right now. The Green, at the gauge at Warren Bridge is flowing at 420 cfs. The storm on the 4th bumped flows from under 300, and are just now leveling out. The forecast for the next week looks like fishing conditions will continue to be PERFECT; High 60°s in day, high 30°s at night, partly/mostly cloudy should keep water temps cool, and should absolutely ignite steamer success. Consider fishing streamers especially in overcast, although we are seeing plenty of rises to the surface, and lots of success on the nymph.
