big water, big fish

Had the opportunity to get out with Steve Beazley, owner of four rivers inc, another guide service based out of Riverton, Wyo on Sunday. Flows were ramped up to 5200 cfs and the wind was brutal in the morning. out of ignorance or stupidity we fished thru the winds and managed a few nice fish on streamers. once the wind died down in the afternoon the fishing heated up. I would say it was one of my best day of sreamer fishing ever. we boated ten fish over 20 inches all on big streamers. I even got to fish a little bit and was able to land one nice brown and another nice bow. I lost the biggest fish I have ever seen on that stretch on a big streamer. I had an awful hookset due to having to clear all my line that was somehow wrapped around the reel, after clearing the line the fish was still on for a while. she rolled on the surface once near the boat and she easily pushed 28 inches. fishing was so good we left early at 3:30 and decided to leave on a high note of steve hooking and landing a nice wild wind river bow. fishing is hot right now, I didnt even break out a nymph rod. a 300 grain striper line and an 8wt were the means of delievering the streamers down deep.

I have this week open without any bookings and the fishing is on fire. Flows will remain up for a few more weeks with the way runoff is going. If anyone wants a discounted streamer fishing trip for trophy trout CALL 307.438.0740 NOW!
