Streamers and large nymphs are working well on the river between Quake and Hebgen lakes. The same is going on for the river below Slide Inn. Don’t overlook BWO and caddis patterns. Beaverhead browns are moving and taking streamers.
Many of these waters will close the end of November. Some will not be accessible soon because roads will not be maintained as winter moves in. Some that should be accessible through November include lower Teton River, lower Fall River, Birch Creek, and the middle and lower parts of the Portneuf River. Consult with us with respect to fishing conditions and access for these.
Fishing closes Sunday, so only a few days are left to get and enjoy some terrific streamer fishing on the Madison, Gibbon, Gardner, Lewis and Snake rivers. Stormy weather is predicted so watch the roads, and if you are in the Park be sure to have some BWO and caddis life cycle patterns in your fly box.
Everything seems the same here: flows, weather (really nice)streamers in low light conditions, few BWOs during the same conditions, big nymphs. But this weekend a change is coming to put us closer to winter with the clouds and rain/snow. Look then for streamer fishing to pick up daytimes, and if the wind is gentle BWOs will bring fish to the surface.
