Jefferson River Fishing Report

Current Conditions: 
The Jeff can be an interesting option in the early spring. Once ice clears out, it is best to stop at just one or two early season runs and spend some time nymphing the slow seams that hold alot of trout. The standard spring patterns that work on the Lower Madison also work on the Jeff.

The Month Ahead:
Same as above for the most part. As we see some warming trends and ice moves out the Jeff can produce some good spring fishing. Some good spring fishing over the skwala stonefly hatch can be had in the early spring.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Jeff should produce decent fishing until run off in mid May. It is never a high numbers game due to lower trout counts but it is a nice location to get away and see few other anglers.
