Jefferson River Report

Current Conditions:
The Jeff is low and warm with lots of algae now.  Best to wait on this one. 

The Month Ahead:
The Jeff isn’t the best summer option due to algae drifts and also warmer temps.  Later in August when we get some cold snaps it can be a decent option but it won’t turn on again until September for all practical purposes.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The Jefferson is a nice fall fishery.  In mid September flows bump up just a bit when irrigation subsides which helps quite a bit.  The trout count is low on the Jeff so don’t expect a big numbers day but this is a nice location to see few boats and an occasional heavy trout.
