big browns in upstate new york

Big brown trout from Upstate New York!

It’s almost time for our annual steelhead outing in upstate New York with the boy from the Great Lake Steelhead Company. Cold weather, good friends, whiskey, and most importantly lake-run chromers. Our buddy Elrod will not be joining us for the first time in 5 years due to a poorly timed wedding….oh well he landed quite the catch. You will be with us in spirit. Looking forward to it but not the cold… We will deal it. Happy Holidays!

Give us a call for spring and summer bookings.

another one into the net

Fishing has been solid on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. Baetis are now present on the Bighorn and will remain a key player in terms of insects for the next month. We have been getting them on all techniques, pick your weapon. Nymphing, Streamers and Drys have all been producing. We just had our Spring Flush of 2012 and the rainbows will benefit. Please avoid the rainbows in the shallows! Give us a call for a day on the Bighorn River. 307.438.0740

winter flies

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!

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!

big browns, bigger water

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

wedding of the waters double

Larry M. with one of many

We have been busy out on the river this past week. Steve Beaz and Capt C. spent the week guiding on the Wedding of the Waters. Midweek fishing has been the best with far fewer boats on the river. Wednesday we were the only boats on the river. Saturday was a boat show but the fishing was outstanding. We have been chasing the bobber until the fish are up eating baetis or baetis emergers. Dry fly fishing has been great even without cloud cover. However it is far better with cloud cover. Get out after it and you will be rewarded. Give us a call at 307.438.0740 for your spring fishing adventure.

spring flush 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!
