Jefferson River Fishing Report

Current Conditions:
The Jeff is up right now and will be a tough option for a while. High flows will be the mainstay over here for the rest of May and the better part of June. Once flows start to drop, it's go time on the Jeff for chances at some large brown trout.


The Month Ahead:

The Jeff should produce some great fishing opportunities in the near future once flows stabilize and begin dropping.  The streamer bight will be very good in mid June – think big yellow rubber leg patterns. Dragging buggers and beads will also work wonders.  The Jeff is never a high numbers game for trout count.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:

The Jefferson tends to drop fast and can get warm in the summer months.  Generally fishing is good in the summer but it pays off to go very early in the morning before water temps get too warm once July and August arrive.
