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!

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

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!

“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

Weather has warmed up here in Central Wyoming. Calling for a high of 41 today in Thermopolis. All week looks perfect for fishing on the Wedding of the Waters! Get out after them. We certainly will be out. Standard tailwater bugs under the bobber will produce. Keep an eye out for risers and have midges and baetis on hand. Get out and enjoy this warm spell!

wind river fishing report

another big brown

Capt C and top guide Steve Beaz took the jetsled out yesterday to see how the wedding of the waters was fishing. Streamers were the ticket with black, brown or olive articulated streamers working best. Fish were holding tight to the bank, however a few fish were picked up mid river in shallower spots. Buffalo Creek is still dumping in mud, but the river remains very fish-able. Floating moss is starting to become a problem and will only worsen. Subsurface fishing will become more and more difficult as the summer passes. Tricos should start popping on the Bighorn River soon. Until then get out and enjoy the few rivers that are fishing well. Enjoy!
