Late fall is in full swing here in Eastern Idaho. The weather has changed & the Indian summers have given way for October fishing. The key to having a great day is to dress in layers and bring your baetis box.
We’re targeting little fall bugs on the Henry’s Fork, South Fork of the Snake, and Teton River. Baetis & October caddis are both being targeted on all three rivers. If you’re fishing the South Fork of the Snake River we’re also using the occasional grasshopper using the hopper/dropper technique.
Subsurface is also highly productive using Zebra Midges #14-18 (black, red, & chocolate), and little pheasant tails (#18-20) for nymphing. We’ve been having the most success with black & olive colored streamers.
Have fun & fish on!
