Want an experience that combines good fishing and gentle water with spectacular scenery? Float the Teton River in Teton Valley. There are several public boat launch sites along the river here, so you can plan a trip based on how much time is available for you. Terrestrial and PMD life cycle patterns will get you into fish throughout. Don’t forget a camera!
The Blackfoot River above the reservoir is producing now, especially for those presenting terrestrial patterns. The river is at base flow, and slower moving water warms up most quickly. Also slower water here tends to hold more weeds making wet fly fishing a bit tricky. So concentrate your efforts along riffles and runs where trout have better oxygenated water. Chances are the larger trout will be holding here.
Want to get that youngster into some fast fishing before going back to school? Birch Creek in the family area above Lone Pine is the ideal place to try. Traditional attractors and dry caddis patterns in sizes 10-16 will bring action for sure.
