Fly Fishing Report


It's October and we're seeing smaller dry fly hatches on the Snake. At this time of the year, it may be around 2pm before we see any dry fly action and it may only last a couple of hours. Both Blue Winged Olives and Mahoganies will work, but the BWO's are taking over. It's good to have some nymphs and streamers if you want to have a more full day of fishing.

Yellowstone is still open and will remain so until the first weekend in November, unless the weather or Covid-19 changes things. Both Lewis and Yellowstone Lakes are open.

Jackson Lake is closed to fishing until the beginning of November, but if you want to lake fish, the others in Teton Park are still open.

Tributary rivers are low indeed and only the deepest spots will hold any fish.


Even though there are reduced hours for several stores in Jackson Hole in October, if you want to buy a fishing license you can do that online and have it on your phone. Use this link to buy a fishing license:
