The smaller, shallower holes below Ashton are a lot easier to deep nymph. Also, it is often warmer at midday over on the lower Henry's since you are out of the mountains. It can be nice and warm on a sunny day with southwesterly air coming up from the Arco desert. But, it is miserable cold up there when a northerly breeze is coming down from Monida Pass.

    Oh believe me I know all about the South Fork ramps, our place is right across from the the Palisades Creek (I still call it Huskys) boat ramp. I am lazy and dont want to drive all the way over to the Hank, although a nice sunny day on the Hank sounds pretty good now that you mention it. Believe it or not, I have had some amazing days on the South Fork in some brutal winter like conditions. And the bonus is, you pretty much have the river to yourself, a rarity on that stretch. Plus I am only 10 minutes from the take out to a warm fire and a hot toddy!

    I guess you would have better position to work the big holes from a boat. So far this season, with the bulk of the snow falling in the high country, ramp access at 5400 elevation in the Swan probably isn't any worse than that photo. There is just 1 to 1.5 ft of settled snow up here at 6400 on the Valley floor.

    I will keep my fingers crossed that the snow stays high and the temps stay mild. Otherwise I will be on the skis, and that isnt all bad either

    As you can see, not a lot of snow across the street from your place.

    No indeed! That looks prime. If those conditions continue I will definitely get out on the water a day or 2. Thanks for posting that up!

    No problemo. Thought that would be a useful linky if you did not already have it.

    This is a great one for the upper Teton. It's focused on the duck blind for now but in summer its focused on the island hole below the lodge. You can tell when the hatches are on because you can see the risers and watch people fishing. Very useful for deciding if the slough is dry fly prime time or just too damn breezy to bother with.

    ND - Thanks for the reminder to toss waders/rods in with the ski gear! Been above freezing in the Teton during the day?

    Yeah. It's a warm ocean cycle so it flips back and forth. Last saturday, the Valley was mid-40s by 1pm. Two weeks ago it was -20 at sunrise and never broke 25 degrees all day. FYI, the water in the upper slough is the last to freeze. Open in the slough doesn't mean its open downstream.

    If you catch a fish without a flat brim, does it even count?

    It would have been warmer at the Hank. It was cold, like really damn cold. The weatherman, as usual got my hopes up with lies. That being said. Water was floated, beer and brown water was consumed and fishes were caught.

    I can take it as well as I can dish it out, so Iím not worried about the shit talkers.
    And Iím secure in my skiing. I dipped a few knees the other day. The fresh snow had me feeling frisky.

    Hereís the last of my 2018 action.
