Fished the Snake this same week last year and had a great time catching Cuts on hopper patterns. Was hoping to go back to Idaho Falls and do this drift again. The Snake River through the Swan Valley is incredible. I would recommend camping in the canyon. This is a great time to fish the Snake because the kids have gone back to school and the fish are still hitting the hopper patterns. We tried fishing nymph patterns as well but we would end up catching 5 white fish for every cutthroat that we caught. This is a bucket river must drift. If you like the Green River in Utah, you will also like this drift!
