Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited Clean-up Day

June 11th, 2012

Test caption

In May 2012, members and friends joined the Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited (JHTU) board in giving their time to clean up Flat Creek during the Town of Jackson’s Spring Clean Up.

It’s hard not to make friends when you are walking along your town stream and straining to find trash on the shores of Flat Creek. This stream project takes place once a year; the banks were relatively clean. The water ripples by, almost imperceptibly rising with spring run-off. However the current is ripe with foam, places where trout will break the surface for a dry fly come July. » More: Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited Clean-up Day

Three days TAIL…

March 5th, 2012

Written By Captain Don Gable

Feb 28, 2012

Day 1: After spending the last three days on the water fishing Permit I think it’s safe to say the 2012 Permit season is off to a great start!

Angler Alex Maher from Jackson, Wyoming, took his spot on the bow of my boat Wednesday hoping to catch his first Permit in the Florida Keys. We set out early on the falling tide, under partly cloudy skies, wind south 5-10 miles per hour with water temps around 74 degrees. I slowly polled up to our first flat to find four or five fish tailing and working in very shallow, slick water. They were so shallow their backs were exposed and we even watched one fish swim on his side as he worked to cross a shallow bar. We worked through the slack and then rising tide for about two hours throwing at tailing fish and managed to get one solid eat that never came tight. The fish turned and ate the fly while quickly traveling down current, towards the boat making it almost impossible to get a solid hook set. “Let’s find another.” I suggested.

Alex and I continued to fish through the top of the high getting a dozen or so shots, it was now 2pm. After a brief roll over, the tide started to drop…fast! It wasn’t long until we spotted a good sized Permit slowly moving across the flat and slightly away. “Eleven o’clock, 70 feet going away…You got him?” I yelled.

“GOT HIM!” Alex said. I made another push and Alex launched his cast placing it about a foot in front of the going away fish and slightly left. The fish turned…Alex gave a long slow strip…another….and then the fish inhaled the fly! “YES!!!!”

Fifteen minutes later…Mr. Permit is in the boat.
