Even fishing guides need a vacation: Owner, Jeramie Prine and his family, are currently in Mexico for a brief vacation before the busy summer season. He will be returning to the United States on June 5th. If you are looking to book a fishing trip during this time, PLEASE CALL OUR HEAD GUIDE JEFF AT 307-349-9433 and he will take care of your fishing needs on the Bighorn River, Green River, or Wind River in Thermopolis, Fontenelle, and Dubois, Wyoming. We apologize for any inconvenience, but hope to help you out with your guided fishing adventure! Sorry for the short notice but my international cellphone service is not working like expected.
Bighorn River & Wind River Fishing Report: Last week with the sudden heating up in the weather, the Bighorn River was chocolate milk from Buffalo Creek to north of town. This weekend the Bighorn River cleared up and the fishing was pretty good. Standard winter, spring flies are pulling fish right now. Think annelids, sow bugs, and midge patterns. There is the occasional blue-wing olive hatching, but the big hatch has not started just yet. The Wind River below Boysen dam boat ramps are super hairy right now and the fishing is only so-so. The cold temperatures seem to be putting the fish down and has them holding in deep water. Heads up that there will be a Bighorn River Cleanup Day this Sunday, February 19, 2017. There will be lots of boats and clean up crews on the water.
Green River Fontenelle Fishing Report: The fishing on the Green River below Fontenelle has been pretty darn good for mid-winter. Fishing has been lights out in the mornings and then slowing up in the afternoons when the air temperatures begin to drop. We had several great days over on the Green River last week with long time guest, Ed. Hot flies were: annelids, sow bugs, and midges. We definitely got luck with little to no wind and clear, sunny skies. Boat ramps are still really tricky and just plan on getting stuck a time or two. There have been lots of wade fisherman out trying to shake cabin fever. What a great place to do just that. Get out and enjoy some winter Wyoming fly fishing!
Bighorn River Fishing Conditions Wyoming: Good news! The warm weather this week helped to defrost the river. The ice dam between Wedding of the Waters and Hot Springs State Park is now gone! There is little to no ice floating down the river and conditions are in good shape for winter fly fishing. This weekend is the last to hunt waterfowl. We had a great weekend this last week with good luck with both the cast and the blast. There was never a dull moment in the boat. Hot flies right now are worms, midges, sowbugs, and streamers. Our guides love fishing in all conditions and seasons, but winter is a whole different special. Not much traffic on the river, nice backdrop, and stellar fly fishing. We are still offering our winter special for $350 (one angler or two).
Bighorn River Wyoming Fishing Report: Temperatures have been cold and we have been receiving some snow. It looks like warm weather is on the way in the next few days. The river is floatable and fishable, especially on a little warmer day. Should the river become iced up on the Bighorn, Dunoir Fishing Adventures is one of three guide services that are permitted to float the Wind River below Boysen Dam. There is always someplace for our guides to float and fish. Hot flies include: sow bugs, annelids, and midges. Streamers have been pretty decent too. We have guided trips coming up and boats going out in a few days. Keep posted for more fishing reports from the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. The river is definitely not crowded right now, and it is great to shake the cabin fever!

Merry Christmas from the Bighorn River, Green River, & Wind River: The Dunoir Fishing Adventures family would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! We would like to thank our friends, family, and guests for making our Wyoming fly fishing guide service what it is today. We are truly blessed!
Dunoir Fishing Adventures has finally joined Instagram and we are looking forward to keeping our followers up to date on fishing conditions on the Bighorn River, Green River, and Wind River. Our goal this year is to keep our fishing reports current with the latest information in Thermopolis, Dubois, Lander, and Fontenelle. We are planning on a day on the Wind River in Dubois, Wyoming tomorrow with our dear friend and legendary guide, Leon Sanderson. Nothing beats a day on the river in December. We currently have a storm making for a white Christmas. Living the dream!
Green River Fishing Report: The Green River below Fontenelle is starting to pick up. Weather can be a factor this time of the year, but as we get closer to late spring the fishing is only going to get better. We had a beautiful day on the Green River recently catching a few really big rainbow and brown trout. Trout were keyed in on midges, nymphs, and streamers. Congratulations goes out to Frank with this beaut of a brown. Migratory birds and moose are being seen on the Green right now. Not a bad way to spend a day on the river getting to see such amazing wildlife and catching big trout! To see more photos check out our Dunoir Fishing Adventures Facebook Page
Bighorn River Wyoming Fishing Report: Guide Todd Helms has been hitting the Bighorn everyday this week. Fly fishing since the spring flush has really improved. Big brown and cutthroat trout have been poking their heads up and feeding on hatches, making the dry fly fishing outstanding. The Wind River basin received a record amount of precipitation for the month of March. This will all trickle into the the Bighorn River and only help fishing conditions for this summer. Keep posted for more Bighorn River Reports to come later this week. To see more photos check out our Facebook Page.
Bighorn River Wyoming Fishing Report: Fishing on the Bighorn River is back to “Bighorn Good.” We had a great day with our friend Chad on Sunday. It looks like spring time is in the air with great fishing and more boats on the river. It was nice to see all of the couples floating and fishing together on Valentine’s Day. A family that plays together, stays together! The rainbow trout are starting to spawn and stage on their redds (spawning beds). Dunoir Fishing Adventures asks anglers coming to fish the Bighorn River to please not fish, wade, or walk across the redds found in shallow riffles in the white gravel patches. There are plenty of nice fish to be caught in the deep runs beneath the riffles without disturbing spawning fish. They are the future of keeping the Bighorn the fishery strong and healthy.
Bighorn River Fishing Report Thermopolis, Wyoming: Dunoir Fishing Adventures’ guide, Jeramie, fished the Bighorn River yesterday. The fly fishing was great and the weather very cooperative for January fishing. The river is free of ice and boat ramps are not too slick. Trout are holding in deeper slower water with annelids and sow bugs being the ticket. There was about a half an hour of a blue wing olive hatch and a few heads poking up giving opportunity for dry fly fishing. Dunoir Fishing Adventures will be guiding several days this week, so keep posted for more fishing reports to come. We are currently offering discounted drift boat fishing trips for $400, one angler or two. Give us a call or shoot us an email for more details. For more photos of yesterday’s trip check out our Bighorn River Facebook Page.
