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

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

it’s no biggie, I’m just the king now

i have been back in CT since the 9th. i came home to a monster snowstorm and serious winds, you would have thought you were in Montucky. i will be spending the next week in nyc taking a course and catching up with old friends that call the big apple home. i love ny but i don’t think I could live there full time. in fact i know i couldn’t because I would be broker than I already am. it should be a good time minus going back to school again! austen, my web and design guy has been busy with the logo and the site. i had no clue how difficult it would be to design a logo. i am pretty sure austen wants to kill me after turning down so many comps.
