Its a new year here in Jackson.   We've been getting a ton of snow recently so the skiing and snowmobiling have been excellent.  We had been having some decently warm weather but as I write this the thermometer is reading -18 degrees.  As far as the summer goes its looking busy already.  Its hard to say what will happen with the water levels at this point but I've had a ton of people calling to book so if you have a specific date you're interested in please let me know as soon as possible.  A number of clients had been unsure of whether I was going to be guiding this summer or if I was going to be nursing?  I can say that I will be guiding this summer and plan to start working as a nurse in the fall.

    I hadn't posted a fishing report all summer so I'll summarize the fall here.  If you've been following me on instagram, neil.chamberlin is the name tag, you probably saw some of the pictures and got some brief reports.  This fall was one of the best falls I've ever seen.  I was fortunate enough to find a lot of big beautiful fish.  The water levels were perfect and we were blessed with an extremely warm fall right up until thanksgiving.  We were catching nice cutties in the Snake River on dry flies all the way through November.  Hopefully this warm fall will have extended the growing season and reward us with some larger than average fish this summer!
