What a cool story Fritz! Thanks for sharing. I love that part of the country. The Tetons never disappoint.

I spent a summer season at Lake Eleanor (YNP). During the heat of summer, fishing is not dependable. But, in fall it's fantastic. Average rainbow is 16" One morning, I was on top of some cliffs on the north side. The lighting was perfect and the lake was totally still. There were dozens of HUGE rainbows visible. in 1994, the record size was 30.5"

Snakes, bears, biting flies and gnats, along with thick brush and tough going, make Lake Eleanor unpopular. Getting to the inlet without a boat is next to impossible.

WTF & Stimbo! Glad you folks liked my story. A free Jackson Hole One Fly was my lifetime lottery win, but of course the weather took some zest out of it.

I haven't fished the Snake in Jackson Hole from a boat since that memorable day, but I did a lot of S. Fork Snake trips on the Idaho side in the 80's & 90's, We usually camped our way down the river below the lodge. Fortunately, I never got bit by those dam flow increases & decreases.

Glad you folks liked my story.

Fritz, that was a great story, thanks for sharing. Here is a photo from last autumn. I was not fishing at the time but rather concentrating on photography (the fishing came soon afterwards on the Henry's Fork). I met this guy on the river and "jones'd" badly watching him fish. He was a good angler and landed many of those "fine spotted" cutthroats, a beautiful trout I hope to go back for this coming autumn.

The other place I hope to return to, and leave my camera gear in the truck, is along the river at the Moran Junction. I photographed an incredible Teton sunrise last year(along with busloads of like-minded photo junkies). While the light show unfolded over the mountains, huge snouts were sipping midges off the top water of the Snake. It would be killer to hook into some big fish with dries.

WTF can give you plenty of beta and stories I am sure for the Idaho side of the S Fork.

That is amazing country up there. Later....

Thanks Fritz! In all honesty, the photo took itself.

Let's get Pyramid on a good day first, then let's drink some brews(or whatever) and talk about a north country expedition sometime. When will the high pressure weather dome move on? We need some snow and Pyramid needs some foul conditions to get the chomp going again.

Sounds good Jim. Iím not sure about the the weather. It looks like we have high pressure for the next week at least. My friend drove up from Livermore and is on the lake Iím sure right now. It will be interested to hear how he does today. I may go out tomorrow if heís getting some fish.

I know I will be on the south fork in late August for a week. I would like to do a couple days on the upper and then float the dam to twin bridges. I would like go back late in sept or early October. We can chat with beers in hand about it when your up this way.

Evel those are some real beauties.

Live pyramid report is fisherman 0 fish 75. Thatís 75 casts without a bite. My poor buddy is paying his dues. I feel for him itís rough going but his enthusiasm to keep coming up and learning the lake is great to watch.

Ill go live report tomorrow from the shores and hopefully we do a little better than he has this morning.
