Tom H. with one of many on top!

We have been all over the place guiding. The Bighorn River in Thermopolis remains fishable but the floating moss is becoming a serious problem for all anglers. Be prepared to clean your hooks every cast.  Capt. C spent three days guiding Tom H. and his son Colin last week and fishing was steady. Tricos in the am and terrestrials for the remainder of the day. Come out and enjoy!

bighorn river in wyoming spring fishing report

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

We have been busy guiding in Thermopolis this past week. Both Steve and Capt. Charles were out. Fishing has been excellent on the Wedding of the Waters. Our clients stayed hooked up throughout the day and most afternoons were spent hunting heads. In terms of tactics everything has been working!

Nymphing:  Has been steady.  Most of the fish are done with spawning and are back in the river eating. Baetis nymphs, emergers, worms, eggs and leeches are all producing under the indicator. The “short- leash” has been affective in the afternoons when fish are suspended in the water column. This past week with the bright sun the fish were in the faster, heavier water hiding from boats and predators.

Dries: This week looks perfect if we get cloud cover. Even without clouds the fish were still podded up eating dries. Keep an eye out for them in the riffles. BLUE WINGED OLIVES are the name of the game. Duns, spinners, and emergers are all catching fish. Keep it simple. Point fly should be a big paracahute adams and drop a smaller more realistic BWO off the back for the picky fish. Keep an eye out for single fish along the banks. The dry fly fishing will only improve! Get after it.

Streamers: For those that hunt the one. Streamers have been producing. On the sunny days tone down the size of your streamer and you will be rewarded. Olive/white articulated streamers and small black buggers have produced best for us. Remember you will be casting a lot but it is entirely worth it.

thermopolis fly fishing report

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

guide steve beazley back at it

Lot’s of fishing reports coming in from this past weekend and week. The Wedding of the Waters have been busy on weekends but the fishing remains very consistent. Most anglers are nymphing under an indicator with a number of different flies. Midges, worms, eggs, and larger point flies such as leeches are all producing. If one pattern isn’t producing be sure to change until you find one that is. Keep an eye out for fish in shallower water 1 to 3 feet keying in on emergers. Mini-rigging can be deadly! GIve us a call for your spring fishing adventure! 307.438.0740. Also if you have any photos or videos that you would like to share shoot us an email.

Keep an eye out for risers. Midges have been hatching most days. Lots of the fish podded up are the smaller fish in the river, but keep an eye out for the big single fish keying in on midges.

Remember to keep an eye out for spawning fish and please don’t walk thru the redds or fish them. Thanks!

Sorry for the lack of updates, we have been busy on the rivers. Fishing remains excellent. Runoff is in full effect which means all of our freestones are toast for now. The Wind River below Boysen is the best bet for clear water in our area. Flows are high and are at 3,940 cfs as of this morning. We have openings for STREAMER fishing on the jetboat for the next two weeks. This is one of the best shots in the state for big browns and bows on big streamers. Give us a call if your interested in our $400 discounted June Jetboat trips.

good fishing, interesting weather

Monday, April 26th, 2010

here are a few photos from the week. it has been a great past few days. the weather has been uncooperative for the most part, but if you can handle the constant wind and weather this fishing is really solid. I have had the opportunity to fish for myself this past week and its been a lot of fun. lander is a great town, the people are friendly, the views are spectacular, and the fish willingly take a fly. I have met a lot of very receptive people so far and look forward to this upcoming summer.  one contact in particular, ron hansen, of Wind River Outdoors Company, just solved my biggest problem of living in lander, last minute fly fishing supplies that are close by. his shop is going to opened up by the end of May and if you are ever in the Lander area be sure to stop by and say hello. the wind is supposed to pick up tomorrow and ill be on the river. standard. this time I will bring a camera. I managed to stick a big hen a few nights ago. I taped her out at 26.5. life is good.
