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!

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!

wedding of the waters

Monday, October 11th, 2010

was going to float the state park yesterday, but bailed when we saw the rodeo of people up in the park. 3 rec boats, 1 WRWC boat. and plenty of wade fishermen, so we went lower to the wedding of the waters. it was a great choice. there were a few boats on the water, but we let all the driftboats go before us since we had sled. fishing was great in the am for hunting heads. pseudos and a FEW BWO were around. the fish wanted small dries and we did great. fish were rising throughout the day but we nymped and streamer fished in the afternoon. we caught two pig cutbows and lots of cookie cutter rainbows that tugged. the big rainbows were extremely hard to land with all of the weeds that cover the bottom. we lost our biggest fish to the bottom. such is life. the state park is only improving and we will continue to book trips there for the rest of fall. walk wade trips are also available for an affordable price on both the park and the sweetwater. next fishing report will reveal all of the details on our newest acquisition of 6 miles of private water on the sweetwater river… stay tuned.
