South Fork of the Snake River

Tip of the week 

Salmonflies are done but you can still have some luck with big foam patterns against the bank. Dry fly fishing on riffles is a better bet with PMD imitations, Yellow Sallies and Caddis. Although the fishing with small dries will only get more technical as the summer progresses. Streamer fishing will produce some surprises as well. Summer is here.

Seven-day forecast 

Keep an eye on the weather with a slim chance of storms throughout the week. With the cooler weather and possibly some overcast days the fishing should be good all week.

The river is holding at 13,300 cfs which is relatively normal but always be cautious because things on the South Fork can come at you fast. Boating accidents can happen to anyone.
