September Fly Fishing in Thermopolis

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Thermopolis Brown Trout

Ashley  with one of many big brown trout from the week

Finally  back from Montana and guiding on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. It feels good to be back on the homestretch. After guiding all season on the fabled blue ribbon trout stream outside of Bozeman, Montana I realize how unique this one fishery in central Wyoming is. I am really looking forward to guiding all of September here and we do have some openings. Steve B will be on hand guiding most of the month as well.  Give us a call at 307.438.0740. 

Now for a fishing report:

Bobber: You cannot go wrong subsurface. The fish are eating nymphs in the deep runs and thru the shallows. Scuds, caddis, small yellow pmd nymphs have all been producing. The shallow 2 to 4 foot sections are stacked with rainbows.

Dry/Dropper: Deadly. The Hopper/dropper has been deadly and our main way to attack the river.

Dry: Commit to the hopper or cricket and you will be rewarded. Certain sections of the river are better than others. It has been hit or miss with the terrestrials. Some of the biggest browns are looking up for the hopper!

jetboat trips for the spring

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Capt. Charles is wrapping up his 30 day fishing and surfing adventure in Panama. The 2012 season was amazing in both Montana and Wyoming. The Bighorn River produced some great fish and amazing days for our anglers. We are looking forward to the upcoming 2013 season with great anticipation. Spring is right around the corner for us here in Thermopolis, Wyoming. We usually get cranking around the last week of feb or beginning of March if the weather permits. This early fishing is some of the best we have. Steve Beaz is ready and pumped for another season as well. Remember we offer Jetboat trips in both Montana and Wyoming which is truly a fun and enjoyable way to fish our fisheries. Let us know about your 2013 trip!

Panama

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Polos Beach, Bocas del Toro, Panama

Sorry for the lack of posts, I will be the first to admit the last thing I want to do while in Panama is write fishing reports while on the beach. I have been in Panama for the past 2 weeks and will remain down here until Mid-December. Fishing has been incredible with Tarpon, Snook, and Amberjacks on the Atlantic Side. Now I am off to Pedasi which is a fishing town on the Pacific Side. Tuna, Marlin, and all other Pelagic fish will be chased!

Guide Steve Beaz remains hard at work chasing ducks and fish around Thermopolis. Weather is bearable as is the fishing. We have been booking up a storm for the 2013 season in both  Montana and Wyoming. Give us a call if your interested. 307.438.0740

Thermopolis Wyoming Fly Fishing Report 9.22.12

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Paul B with a beautiful streamer caught rainbow!

Cold nights and warm days have made for some incredible fishing on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. We have been out everyday since the 3rd of September and will continue guiding into November. Fishing on the river has been great. Streamers, Nymphs, and of course Dries have all been catching fish.  The Hopper bite has started to slow down, but it is still producing some big fish if you stick to it all day. We have been out chasing heads most mornings and nights looking for the “ONE.” Give us a call if you would like a day with one of our amazing guides. We guarantee you will catch fish or you will get your money back. Give us a call. 307.438.0740

Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming Fishing Report

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Another Bighorn River Brown Trout falls to the purple chubby!

We are getting lots of complaints about moss on the river. We agree it is a pain. You will have to clean your fly every drift even when fishing big dries. Nymphing is out of the question, as is streamer fishing. The Trico hatch remains consistent and fish are keyed in on them! If you are willing to deal with the moss and floating salad it can be rewarding.  When fishing blind fishing terrestrials change up your pattern until you get on that works. The bigger and bulkier the better at least for us. Give us a call! 307.438.0740.

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!

andrew byron throwing streamers for the big one

We are already looking forward to warmer weather and big fish. Its very cold in central Wyoming! Brrrr. We are busy tying flies and booking trips for the upcoming 2012 season in both Wyoming and Southwestern Montana. Give us a call and we will be more than happy to take care of your fly-fishing needs. It’s going to be a busy spring in Thermopolis area as the fishery is really starting to get popular. Weekends can be hectic so be sure to try and come out mid-week. Guide Steve Beaz got on the river yesterday and had a great day of fishing. The male rainbows are starting to color up already!

big browns, bigger water

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

laramie with a big streamer brown

another big streamer eater

The Wind River is currently flowing high at 5200 cfs. Nymphing has become difficult but streamers with enough work and dedication have been producing big time for us. We usually catch some of our biggest browns this time of the year. High water pushes the big fish to the bank and we saw enough big chasers and had enough hooks ups to confirm it. Wedding of the Waters has mud coming in at Buffalo Creek but it remains fish-able. Our recommendation is to float from WOW to the Hot Springs State Park. Give us a call we have openings until the 16th of June! 307.438.0740
