September Fly Fishing in Thermopolis

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!

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

“She’s Alive!”

We took the jetboat out for the first time this season this weekend. She is running great and ready to go for the season. Give us a call if your interested in changing up your floating experience. We often take the jet out on the lower Bighorn River to throw streamers and dries to big un-pressured fish. We can fish lots of different water than the driftboats! 307.438.0740

horses on the ranch

fishing reports from the weekend were varied. from our guides we keep hearing midges, worms, and eggs are producing. baetis are showing up slowly and they were producing. the key to this river is changing your pattern often until you find what works. it can vary day to day fly to fly. stay smart. they are just trout! give us a call about our $350 spring special for driftboat trips on the wedding of the waters.
