JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The rain may have eased up, but rivers and streams in Jackson Hole are still clouded, running high and difficult to fish.

The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1Buc0zz ) that WorldCast Anglers’ guide Mike Dawkins says it will probably be at least two weeks before flows settle enough to make for good fishing.

River levels are high because of melting snowpack that is flooding the tributaries. An unusually high amount of precipitation in May deposited late spring snow in the mountains.

But Dawkins says fly fishermen will be thankful for the wet May later on.

August was originally expected to be tough for fishing, but Dawkins says the spring rains improved the outlook for August and early fall.
