A Saturday in September: Fishing on the Snake River

September 21st, 2011

By: Macye Maher
Today Beckett (5) and I went with Scott Smith and fished from the dam at Jackson Lake to Pacific Creek.  It was epic.  A chilly wind and powerful sunshine created a decadent fishing atmosphere.  Beckett caught three cutthroat on a dry fly, all of which just surprised Scott and me to no end.  The cast grew better and better.  The first cutty took on a skating fly and the other two we watched very visual trout “takes”, and when we told Beckett to set, he did urgently.  He fought them well, and afterwards gave thumbs up and a smile.  He is a patient and happy angler, loves the boat and went barefoot the whole day.

Legacy Spring Creek Ranch  – Springfield, Idaho

This 671-acre ranch is arguably the finest waterfowl property in the entire state of Idaho. It is located 2.5 hours from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, 2 hours from Driggs, Idaho, and 2.5 hours from Salt Lake City. Legacy Spring Creek ranch has over 3 miles of spring creeks located next to the 56,000-acre American Falls Reservoir in Springfield, Idaho. This combination coupled with a productive agricultural component and with the ability to grow key food crops, creates the perfect storm for record numbers of ducks and geese. It is not uncommon to see thousands of mallards and Canada geese loafing on the spring-fed creek systems and grain fields. An array of both game and non-game birds frequent the ranch including Widgeon, Teal, Gadwall, Canvasback and diving ducks. The ranch harbors a robust wild pheasant population to keep any bird hunter occupied after a morning in the blind. For the angler, large trout in excess of 30” cruise these waterways and provide a size class of fish rarely seen in a wild system. The most prominent species are rainbow and cutt-bows, and massive brown trout have been caught on the property. This turnkey operation offers a 5-bedroom home, a garage/shop with gunroom and bird cleaning facilities, plus equipment necessary to enjoy the Legacy Spring Creek Ranch immediately.

Journal Entry from Brian Hartley – 2/13/2011

 

My just rewards for a 14-hour workday on the Sabbath…

 

I had 2 considerably larger fish on but lost them as I had to steer the fish around big hunks of floating ice – quite the challenge.  Good times.  God bless 50+ temps in February.

Riffle Candy

The last Tuesday of August was a great day on the South Fork.  We try to hit this famous fishery during the week.  Less boats.  Less competition for the riffles.  We used emergers, basically anything with a pinkish hue, and found the riffles a winning place to be, especially the ones in the middle of the big river where the live water runs across the rock in a mezzanine structure.  The flies floated over the drop-offs where larger trout were salivating and ready to nip, tuck and run with them.  Alex hooked into a big rainbow and just lost it after a battle to the flats.  His big brother was lingering downstream in a side channel and waiting for Alex to find him. » More: Riffle Candy
