Jefferson River Fishing Report

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

The Month Ahead:
As days grow longer big ice shelves will start melting quickly making the Jefferson a great choice for the Spring Months.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
March and April offer good spring fishing until runoff hits. Skwala stoneflies can be targeted in early spring months on the Jefferson.
