Hi guys been a while
Would like to try some fly fishing in the snake river for smallies.
Can anybody give me any ideas of what flys might work for this river. I live just across the road from it and fished with crawlers but want to get into some fly fishing. Would be grateful for any help.
Thanks the ddawg.

Haven't fished the snake for a year or so, but the smallie action is great, isn't it? The forage base is mostly crayfish, so crayfish imitations are your best bet. use enough weight to get the fly down a bit; up to a 1/8 oz. split shot placed 1-1.5 feet above the fly does the trick. You can fish 'em dead drift or with a quick retrive (depending on the day and the fish mood). Twitch your fly a few times when it finishes it's swing. That's usually when they take. You might also want to try some minnow immitations (muddlers in yellow, white or black, or clouser minnows..they tend to work better later in the season).

Good luck!
