Snake Below American Falls Reservoir:

flows out of the dam are sitting around 315CFS and the reservoir is sitting at 45%. Fishing has been consisted over the last month and water clarity is looking great. Mid day bite has been the ticket with small midge patterns and nymphs. balanced leeches and worms are always solid option for point flies. Don't be scared to throw some streamers in tan, olive, and black.

South Fork Snake River :  Flows out of the dam are sitting at 928 cfs and the reservoir is at 22%. Water is low and its cold up there! Fishing has been fair with small nymphs and seeing a few midge on the warmer afternoons. 

Henrys Fork: Lots of snow and cold up in this neck of the woods. Most of the reports we are getting are from folks fishing really small bugs in slower pools. 

Portneuf River:  The water is in great shape and the fish are happy. Small streamers and scuds have been good on the upper above lava. 

Still waters & Lakes: Most of our southern lakes have good ice and folks have been fishing. Fishing small spoons and tying some #10 and #8 duracells, frenchies, and scuds.
