Main Stem Snake River 8-10-09

Even though the river is a bit higher than normal, fishing is really picking up here.  Whether you walk in or wade, terrestrial insects are becoming more important each day in trout diets.  Caddis, some PMDs and sallys are emerging.   But if you want chance at the rlly big fish this river offers, go to streamer, wooly bugger on San Juan worm types.  Have you heard of the new Idaho record rainbow ( 20 pounds and change) caught in the river below Tilden Bridge?  It was probably an American Falls Reservoir fish escaping the reservoir doldrums for moving and therefore more comfortable water.  True, it was caught on worms, but fly tying fly-fishers, being an innovative bunch, can surely come up with a worm cluster pattern.   Who knows: one such fly presented properly could come up with another Snake River trout of such proportions!
