Wind River Fly Fishing Winter Report: Dubois, Wyoming is experiencing full on winter conditions right now. Tributaries are frozen and the Wind River on the reservation is mostly frozen or has floating ice coming down the river. There are areas near Dubois that are still fishable if you are willing to brave the cold conditions and iced guides. I had the opportunity to fish with our good friend Leon today on some private water of his. Brown trout were hungry! He has been busy guiding fishing trips. and I was fortunate enough to catch him on a day off. I am blessed to call him my friend, and experience such a great day in Wyoming.
The tailwater of the Wind River and the Bighorn River will remain to be good fishing. Midges, sowbugs, and baetis will be go to flies. We are looking forward to guided trips this next month on the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. Guiding on the Bighorn River in the winter is one of our specialties and favorite things to do. Warm lunch, affordable trip, and killer good fishing. Keep posted for more fishing reports to come!
