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!
