Wind River, Bighorn River, Green River, Triassic Lake Wyoming Fly Fishing 2020: Thanks to all of our friends and family that joined us for the 2020 fishing season in Wyoming. It was a stellar fishing despite all that happened this year. We are grateful for many fine days on the water. We are looking forward to another great season in 2021! Join our Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Outfitter Guide Service today!
Wind River Country Fly Fishing Dubois, Wyoming Fishing Report: The rivers and streams are really starting to shape up nicely. Our guests have been having great luck dry fly fishing. The Wind River is just turning on for fishing and water quality is looking good. The weather has been marvelous, but with the heat it has brought breezy conditions. It is Wyoming so you must always be prepared for some wind.
The Bighorn River has also been fishing really well despite moss. Our guests have had some stellar days in the drift boat catching many large rainbows and browns. Dry droppers and streamers are producing! It is getting hot in Thermopolis so we have been getting early starts.
The Green River is fishing very well with dry fly fishing in the morning and then nymphing and streamer fishing later in the day. It is starting to warm up on the Green as well. Early morning starts are a must to avoid heat and afternoon wind.
We are giving Triassic Lake a rest due to water temperatures heating up. In addition to resting trout, we are going to be stocking more trout and want to be sure they have a chance to get acclimated and grow a bit. We will be opening back up on the lake near the end of August.

Wyoming Fly Fishing 2020
Wyoming Fly Fishing 2020: Dunoir Fishing Adventures is pleased to be going on our 10th year of guiding fly fishing on the Wind River, Bighorn River and Green River. We are looking forward to another great season with a great crew of guides, and fun times on the water with guests.
Sorry for our lack of reports, but the summer and fall seasons were packed with guests and guide trips leaving little time or energy to type up reports. We also had a big film project with Tom Rosenbauer of Orvis and Mark Melnyk of The New Fly Fisher. Keep posted and we will let you know when the shows will be aired. It was a wonderful opportunity to get to film with the crew, and have Dunoir Fishing Adventures featured.

Keep posted for updated fishing reports, news, and info for the 2020 season!

Bighorn River Fishing: Thermopolis, Wyoming is dropping water flows each day, and the clarity is starting to improve. Fish are definitely starting to feed. We are taking out several fishing trips out on the Bighorn this week, so keep posted for more to come! It will be great to get back to the Bighorn knowing that the fishing should only get better each day! The Wind/Bighorn River is flowing at 5106 cfs with only 4300 cfs coming in. Boysen Reservoir should be out of flood stage tomorrow! To see current water flow data on the Wind River and Bighorn River please click HERE
Dubois, Wyoming Fishing Report: The past few weeks our guides have been busy in the Dubois area fishing the many tributaries. The streams and creeks have been fishing extremely well with dry-dropper setups. We have been honored to work with Casting for Recovery Wyoming and Project Healing Waters Long Beach Program over the past few weeks. It is always a very special treat for us to spend time on the water with some of the most amazing people! Thank you!
The water is dropping quickly in Dubois, and we have all been looking forward to fishing the Wind River. Unfortunately, the Wind River is low enough to fish, but there was a huge landslide that is sloughing in dirt and debris into the river. We are not sure when the river will clear up, but we will keep you posted. To read more about the landslide in the Wind River click HERE
Green River Fontenelle Fishing Report: The Green River below Fontenelle has been fishing well through high water and through the dropping of river flows. Guests have caught some beautiful trout and it is great to see the river fishing so well! High water years and plenty of precipitation have really helped the fishery! As the summer temperatures heat up, we will spend less and less time on the Green River to help protect the fish. The river flows are currently at 4770 cfs.

DUBOIS, WYOMING FISHING REPORT: The fly fishing and the river conditions are slowly starting to improve in the Dubois area. The Wind River is still blown out and a lot of that is due to our afternoon storms that have been rolling in. The high mountain tributaries to the Wind River are slowly starting to shape up, but are still running big. We advise anglers to use caution wade fishing and not try to cross too swift of currents. That being said, there are a lot of productive channels to fish. We have been doing well catching some beautiful Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout, and been busy scouting all water in the area. We are honored to be able to fish with a group of excited anglers from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing for the next three days.
BIGHORN & GREEN RIVER CONDITIONS: The Bighorn River is slowly starting to drop. The current river flows out of Boysen Dam are still at 8432 cfs and water is still off color. We are hoping to see some improvement this week as inflows have dropped significantly.
Green River fishing conditions are remaining good and we have had several trips go out the past few weeks below Fontenelle Dam. A lot of big fish are eating and our clients have been enjoying the great weather and solid fishing. The Green River is currently dropping river flows to 4000 cfs. Fishing has remained good through the drop. We have more trips going out in the next few days, so keep posted.
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!
