Most of us have been complaining about the terrible weather our region has been experiencing lately. That weather includes rain and snow, all blown around by cold, strong winds. But this cloud has a great silver lining in that snow pack in the Snake River drainage is now over 100% of normal. Here’s why we discuss this good news in the fishing report. If you are planning a visit from outside the immediate area to fish the South Fork, 100% of normal pack this late in the snow season greatly increases the chance that the river will have flows adequate through the summer to keep water cool for good fishing. Of course, this must be combined with a temperate springtime that keeps water in the reservoir system longer. It is our practice to keep on top of flows in the river and report them here when significant changes occur. But adding good snow pack news this time of year gives you even more information for making plans.
