Snake River Fishing Report – (10.12.21)
The Wyoming Game and Fish will be conducting two population estimates on the Snake River this year during the following times:
Week of Oct 11 (tentative dates: 11, 12, & 14) 5 miles of river Upstream of Moose
Week of Oct 18 (tentative dates: 19, 20, & 22) approx 3 miles Downstream of South Park Bridge
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, Diana Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Darren Rhea (email@example.com)
The Snake River drawn down is complete and flows are stabilizing at around 280 cfs by October 5th for the rest of the fall and winter season. That will shorten some of your float options substantially. Now that this river is stable, we should see some great fall fishing. With the cooler weather on the way, our main bug hatches are going to be the end of the Hecubas and Mahoganies and prime time for Baetis/Blue Wing Olives. As water temperatures continue to cool, look for fish to start moving out of their summer water types and into more slower water types. Fishing hours are going to transition to the warmest parts of the day, not necessarily early morning and late evening. Streamer fishing has been ok and will continue to be productive as water temps cool. Fall is a great time on the Snake so don’t miss it.
