South Fork Fishing Report: Early August

The South Fork of the Snake has been showing it’s true colors for the past few weeks. From the Dam all the way to Rexburg there has been outstanding fishing day in and day out. The trout are looking up for golden stones, mayflies, caddis and hoppers. They are also eating a long list of bead head nymphs. The fish are just plain eating and most days there are a number of things that will work to produce large numbers of beautiful trout. The water in which the fish are feeding is as diverse as what they are eating. The riffles are stacked with feeders. The banks have browns lined up to smack a dry as well as suspended cutthroat that will sip one down, and the back waters are full of hungry little buggers. This is the time to fish. Most people look to the salmon fly hatch as the best fishing of the year, but these past few weeks and the rest of the summer ahead may very well be the best time of the season.
