We had the pleasure of hosting our good friend and JayScottOutdoors.com contributor Janis Putelis on the Snake River for one afternoon of flyfishing. We floated the Pacific Creek to Deadmans stretch and Janis was able to catch some nice cutthroat. Janis is a very good flycatser and fisherman so it was a pleasure to watch. I rowed, Janis fished and Jeanne supervised. We are very proud of Janis and his recent accomplishments of being named Associate Producer of the popular tv show the Meateater

My friends, Monty and Pam Parsons, floated with me on the Snake River near Jackson. We floated two stretches, from Pacific Creek to Deadmans and Moose to Wilson. Monty caught some real nice Snake River Cutthroats on large foam flies. The views were spectacular and the company was even better.

Monty Parsons and I had a couple of great days of fishing! We fished the Snake River near Jackson and the South Fork of the Snake River near Swan Valley, Idaho. These photos below are from our trip to the South Fork. We fished the canyon section which was a little more than a 25 mile float. That was probably the furthest distance I have ever floated in one day. The canyon is absolutely gorgeous! We saw many golden and bald eagles. Most of the fish in the section of river are Yellowstone Cutthroats and brown trout. Monty caught several of each. He fished caddis and pmd dry flies.
Jeanne and I fished the Hoback River today south of Jackson Hole. It is a small but mighty little stream that meanders through a beautiful canyon. Jeanne turned a pile of Snake River Cutthroats and she fished the same foam fly all day. At the end of the float she said she wanted to retire that fly and place him in the hall of fame of her favorite one. Lots of fun!
