Anyone ever fished Jackson Lake this time of year? What should I expect? I'm heading up there next week and will be cruising around on a boat for three days. Species? Tactics? Thanks.
Below the dam is fantastic fishing.We use to take the kids there after school let out. Camped at Signal Mountain a lot. Fished in a small 12-foot aluminum boat usually from the launch at Signal to Donoho (sic) over into Spalding Bay. Later we got a bigger boat and just camped in it out on the lake at one of the designated boat camp sites.
Used pop gear for nice cutthroats ans small macs. Used mostly 1/2 oz white jigs with sucker meat for bigger macs. The fishing below the dam is really good especially if you have some heavy duty tailwater gear or use big slip bobbers.
I don't boat there anymore; too crowded, too many tourists. Signal Mountain and Colter Bay were "bear proof" camp grounds last I knew.
Years ago National Geographic was filming a segment for a video/TV series on the National Parks at Jackson Lake (Grand Teton N. P.) My wife and kids were filmed swimming and wading in the icy June waters of Jackson Lake around Colter Bay. kinda cool
