Capt. Charles is back from Panama!

Monday, December 17th, 2012

75 cent ice is my favorite thing about Thermopolis

I just returned from 31 days exploring Panama with a surfboard, fishing rods, and a mission to find a winter fishery. A successful trip for sure. I am back for the holidays and for my Sister’s Wedding in New York. I will be doing presentations at a number of hunting and fishing clubs around the Tri-State Area promoting 307 Outfitters as well as Lone Peak Outfitters out of Bozeman, Montana.

Fishing Report from Panama:

SICK. Roosterfish, Trevally, Dorado, Tuna, Big Cubera Snapper, Snook, and as many Bonito as you could ever want. Only one problem. I broke my camera Halloween weekend before I left. I guess mental memories will have to sustain. It doesn’t however make my fishing reports/bragging to clients and friends very easy.

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.

On a serious note. Prayers and thoughts go out to top guide Steve Beazley who is mourning the loss of his son John from Arizona. We will not be running trips this week on the Wedding of the Waters.

spring flush 2011

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

big wyoming cuttbow

Another great week of guiding and fishing on the Wedding of the Waters in Thermopolis, Wyoming.  This past week the Bureau of Rec bumped the flows from 800 cfs to 1260 cfs and then finally up to 5,000 cfs on the 5th to flush the river system. Fishing was lights out at 800 cfs with fish keying into midges and baetis primarily.

We wanted to see how the flush affected the fishing yesterday so guide Steve B. and I did float from the Wedding of the Waters to 8th Street Bridge. Fishing was once again solid. Fish were in SOFT water and eating heavily. We did well on bloodworms, scuds, eggs, beatis, and midges. Lots of big fresh rainbows were out to play and take advantage of the large amounts of food coming down the river. Fishing will only improve as the river settles. Flows should remain at 1260 cfs for the month.  Keep an eye out for rising fish as the BWO start popping more intensely everyday. Don’t forget out $350 Wedding of the Waters driftboat trips! Give us a call!
