South Fork of the Snake River Fishing Report 10/17/2019

south fork guide josh jablow

If you’ve been checking in on our live river cam then you’ve certainly noticed the drop in the flow, down to just over 2,000 cfs. This getting close to last year’s winter flow.  This opens up all kinds of wade fishing opportunities but can be painfully slow to float, so plan on short floats if you’re boating.

Standard fall fishing and techniques apply.  Streamers or BWO nymphs in the morning and then be ready to find rising fish in the afternoon on BWO’s, Mahogany’ss, and Midges.  The fish will be podded up with the flows like this so focus on deepwater with riffles, foam lines, and structure.  If the river is shallow and wide, keep pushing or wading to find deeper runs and structure where the fish will be.  The nasty weather headed our way this weekend will keep the fisherman away but the fish and bugs will love it, so dress warm and get out there!

We’ve got guides available for fishing, waterfowl hunting, or both so don’t miss out on this special time of year.

Our dining room will be open for reservations this coming Sunday through next Sunday.  Come join us for our last week of dining and enjoy a FREE appetizer with your meal.  Call 208.483.2222 to make a reservation.
