The Shoulder Seasons of Jackson Hole

June 18th, 2009

A frequently asked question during the busy summer fishing season is: what do I consider to be the best time to fish our rivers in the area?  I generally have to laugh as the angler up front hooks yet another nice fish on a large dry fly and the person behind me is so awe struck by the scenery and cobalt sky that he or she is not too concerned about the catching.  My initial thought is what most everyone prefers, the peak summer months, which are July, August and September. Then I begin to recall truly incredible excursions almost every month of the year, so after releasing a solid 15inch trout from the net I look at the guy and comment that April and October are the best times in my opinion.  Again, I laugh as he looks back and says “but is it not snowy and cold then,” as everyone assumes.
