Rockin’ M Ranch fly fishing report. We are coming off a winter with an above average snowpack. The Snake River drainage is currently at 112% of the 30 year average. We have seen several years between 150% and 200%, therefore this run-off with be large but nothing crazy. The Salt River which runs along the Rockin’ M Ranch western border typically see’s the river peak on average about June 4th. We are typically able to find some fishing opportunities in the 3rd and 4th weeks of June on some of the smaller creeks and tributaries of the Snake and Salt River. McCoy creek in Idaho (7 miles from Rockin’ M Ranch) is always my favorite early season destination, along with Steer creek on the Little Greys and Salt Creek at the South end of the Valley. The Salt River is almost always fishing well by July 1st. The largest hatches are typically in the first few weeks of clarity. The Salt has been fishing great the last few years, I am sure this summer should be no different. We have also been seeing some very large fish being caught on our onsite Rockin’ M Ranch ponds.
