cold temperatures and changing weather

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

not much has changed in central wyoming. weather is changing. fast. get your hopper fishing in before the cold kills them off. after that it will be back to chasing the bobber. trico fishing is still good if you can wake up early enough. good reports are coming from the canyon. the res is going off still. get out here. 307 is looking into permits on the green….keep an eye out for our expansion across 307

nice wyoming brown on a dry
pink blt hopper does it aqain
biggest fish of the day…over 24″

satellite internet is a joke. i don’t recommend it. looks like I can only upload 2 photos from today. great. had an outstanding day on hoppers regardless of changing weather conditions. the key was to cover water and fish water that other do not normally reach. It was definitely a big fish day. i broke off 2 pigs and had 2 other fish straighten out my hooks. BIG FISH. I couldn’t believe I didn’t hook one of the two. lessons learned every day on the water….even on a guides day off.

wyoming grasshopper fishing and coffee

morning coffee on the pond

not much has changed in central wyoming. the state park, canyon, and wedding of the waters are fishing great. the weather has been grey and stormy with a bit of a chill in the air. on another side note the north platte has been outstanding with hopper fishing. something not many people have experienced. have had reports of 30 fish days all on hoppers. big fish at that. summer is winding down and the fishing will improve.

hoppers on the pond

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

Jamie Dunn with a hopper caught bow

another happy client on the pond

It has been a busy week on the ranch. the parents are in town. hoppers are flying. clients are coming in steady even though the fishing is so so below the dam. the canyon is fishing extremely well on hoppers and chubbys. the wedding of the waters is also a good bet. just keep the fly on the surface and close to the russian olives and you will hook up! enjoy what is left of summer. kids are back in school and the rivers are quite again. give us a call 307.438.0740

nice brown trout from the other day. we were forced to nymph today below the dam. fishing was decent, but we definitely worked for our fish. micah and chris from up the hill came and fished. always a pleasure to have such good clients. we will be seeing them again for sure.

richard’s big wind river rainbow

got out yesterday with richard and steve b of 4 rivers guide service based out of riverton, wyo and ran the jet for the day. threw streamers and nymphs in the am and we were rewarded. we struggled landing most of the big fish due to the weeds. we tried to fish the hopper with a small trailer and got zero interest for 3 drifts. we went back to chasing the bobber until it got too hot. ¬†weeds got worse in the afternoon. saw the wrwc boys hooked up below the dam for most of the am. we didn’t get down into the ¬†canyon, but fishing reports have been hot! streamers in the am and terrestrials after 11. going out again tomorrow below the dam for a trip and will report back…..
