We have waited a long time to have a good report for the mainstem Snake River.  Water flows have dropped to near normal levels, so we can recommend that one should consider the river for streamer fishing.  There are many places to access the river.  We can make recommendations as to which might produce and we can recommend streamer patterns for this time of year.  Get in touch or come to the shop for information on how to approach this great and often overlooked fishery.

Flows are down to where there are a lot of choices for walk-in fishing.  Streamers and woolly bugger types are your best bet.  Come and talk to us about easily approached locations and choosing effective streamer patterns.

Streamers remain the most effective way to encounter the large ‘bows and browns here.  Remember, the river remains open to fishing all year, and during winter months can be a great location to get out on bluebird days.

This is the place to be if you enjoy presenting streamers. With flows dropping to low levels and the abundance of low light conditions, ‘bows and migrating borwns are active during daytime. Rely on your favorite patterns and streamer tip lines.  There are several great walk-in locations along the river from Idaho Falls to American Falls Reservoir. Come in and visit us to learn the best of these.
