South Fork of the Snake River

Tip of the week 

Nymphing will be your most productive method during the winter months. Look for slower water types than what you would fish during the summer. Stripping Streamers while moving from spot to spot looking for rising fish is the most productive way to spend time on the water this fall. Remember to keep them low and slow.
