Main Stem Snake River 7-15-10

The main stem from Idaho Falls down to American falls has dropped to normal summer levels. The water is clear and is this stretch of river offers some great streamer fishing and even some caddis and pale morning dun hatches.

Access is somewhat limited if you don’t have a boat but there is some access near bridges or adjacent roads. When streamer fishing we like to use a type VI 15 foot sinking tip or150 to 200 grain 24 foot tip. Fish the deeper runs and and around any log piles or structures. Also fish the slower inside bends that are 4 to 6 feet in depth. They don’t look productive but fish through them quickly because sometimes trout move into these areas¬† to chase minnows.
