steve b with a big wyoming brown

decided to get out today and fish with steve b. fishing was solid on streamer regardless of no cloud cover. today was warm and sunny. we saw lots of yellow sallies and big caddis. nymphing would have produced more number, but we chose to huck meat. we landed 2 browns and one bow. we lost 5 more rainbows that threw the hooks, including the biggest fish of the day. life is good in central wyoming and i am too tired to write a fishing report. more to come tomorrow. book your trip now.

307 outfitters is pleased to announce that our lunches will now be provided by Lander’s famous Gannet Grill. we are really looking forward to teaming up with them and look forward to enjoying their great food stream-side. Lander, Wyoming is a great summer town with a lot of activities for all to enjoy. we have great rock-climbing, hiking, and did I mention the fishing. I am going to take the weekend off and fish for myself with a few buddys from Casper. we are going to get out on the jet and see how the wind is fishing. we haven’t been over below the dam in 2 weeks due to water conditions and calving on the ranch. should be a blast. more to come. be sure to book your end of july, august and september hopper trips.

wildflowers and brown trout

we still have clear fishable water on some of our local tail-waters. I was able to get out today and fish for myself and check out some different water around central wyoming. streamer fishing was outstanding when the cloud cover was present. a thunderstorm rolled in and the i caught three of the biggest fish during that storm. the biggest was 24 plus and also caused me to dunk my Nikon DSLR into the river. so after 3 plus years my camera finally took its last photo of the first brown of the day. the fish was a tank.

it is going to be a great summer with all of the water we have this year. hopper season will be here soon and i had one big brown come up and take a Wilcox’s VW Hopper. I blew the hook-set not expecting to see a fish eat such a big dry this early. life is good. be sure to get out and enjoy this weather. call us to book your hopper trip.

big water, big fish

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Had the opportunity to get out with Steve Beazley, owner of four rivers inc, another guide service based out of Riverton, Wyo on Sunday. Flows were ramped up to 5200 cfs and the wind was brutal in the morning. out of ignorance or stupidity we fished thru the winds and managed a few nice fish on streamers. once the wind died down in the afternoon the fishing heated up. I would say it was one of my best day of sreamer fishing ever. we boated ten fish over 20 inches all on big streamers. I even got to fish a little bit and was able to land one nice brown and another nice bow. I lost the biggest fish I have ever seen on that stretch on a big streamer. I had an awful hookset due to having to clear all my line that was somehow wrapped around the reel, after clearing the line the fish was still on for a while. she rolled on the surface once near the boat and she easily pushed 28 inches. fishing was so good we left early at 3:30 and decided to leave on a high note of steve hooking and landing a nice wild wind river bow. fishing is hot right now, I didnt even break out a nymph rod. a 300 grain striper line and an 8wt were the means of delievering the streamers down deep.

I have this week open without any bookings and the fishing is on fire. Flows will remain up for a few more weeks with the way runoff is going. If anyone wants a discounted streamer fishing trip for trophy trout CALL 307.438.0740 NOW!
