We fished East Bank to Jerry Creek two days ago.  Beautiful day with river at about 3,000 cfs with great clarity for the Big Hole.  It was tough fishing.  Managed a nice Brooke, a very small bow, a smallish white fish and a nice brown.  That was it. 

Looks like the rivers are getting ready for some flow growing soon with warmer weather and then maybe it will be done and the fishing will get cranked up!

Def a fattie.  Those grassies are well fed.

2017 – 45

Catching up...

This is the 18th year of the semi-annual Psycho Fly Fishing gatherings, I’ve been to a lot of them over the years, missed too many, so I made an extra effort to be there all four days this year, but when Rhody called and said “lets chase some cicada eating carp” I headed a little further west.

We saw plenty of carp, but most weren’t interested in eating naturals or our imitations. We both hooked into some large commons that took us to the trees and broke us off. The wind picked up and that didn’t help, but we had beer!
Maybe we were on the wrong part of the lake, but finally I hooked into a large grassie, thirty-six inches long with a Buddha belly, it weighed in at thirty plus pounds.

With thunderstorms popping up we called it a day and I drove on to the PFF in Shady Valley.

I tied these up on 1/0 Mustad C70s D Big Game Light 2x heavy / standard which are about the same size as a #2 B10S which we were bending on the last outing. Jason thought they would be too heavy but this was the fly that worked for me...

Brewpub is a must stop.  I probably drank more pakos my first hour in town than I drink beers in any other given week.

I'm in Ashton now and we're still waiting on the fish to start taking dries but we've been doing pretty well with rubber legs late in the day. Floated yesterday and gonna float everyday til Thursday. Rented from Miller drift boats which I highly suggest. I'd take the Idaho side over Jackson all day.

We passed through Ashton on several occasions and I saw the rental place you were talking about. I considered it, but I don't trust my rowing abilities enough to go for it. Good luck duder. If you're looking for a nicer dinner and happen to be near Driggs, head to Forage. We went twice and both times were excellent.

When we got there in the morning it was dumping buckets. We pushed through it. Rain was on and off all day. About 1:30 the skies opened again and we called it a day

I'm not quite ready to totally write off Jackson but yes it is like Disney land for cowboy loving Asians.  D.O.G. burritos however make me want to keep it.  Conveniently they are also available at Pass Gas in Wilson so you don't have to brave the Jackson traffic.

I was being rather dramatic. Snake River Brewing, Cowboy Coffee, and Snake River Angler, were all good (of the places we went in JH). We went to Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for the experience, and an experience was all it was. We just enjoyed the Victor/Driggs area more because it was a little more low key but still enough to keep us occupied for the week.
