Wyoming Fly Fishing Spring Report: Bighorn, Green, Wind River
Bighorn River Fishing Report: The fly fishing on the Bighorn has been great this early spring. Guide Todd Helms had a great day fishing with The Coaches and caught their share of nice trout! The river is flowing at 2000 cfs while work is being done. Traffic is picking up and people are excited to to float. The Spring Flush is projected for March 28th. We will keep you posted as more information is available from the Bureau of Reclamation. In April, the river will be up to 3500-4000 cfs in order to help compensate for our large snowpack/runoff. It is melting by the day at a reasonable rate, and Boysen Reservoir is currently at 85.4% full. It seems like we are in for a great year with plenty of water. Our guides have some of the best experience for big water and know how to find the sweet spots! Hot flies right now are: annelids, sow bugs, midges, and the occasional streamer.
Green River Fishing Report: The Green River below Fontenelle is increasing the water flow this week. Fishing will be a little finicky until the river flows stabilize at a consistent flow. It is going to be a big water year, but our guides’ experience and being in drift boats make all the difference for a good day on the Green River. We have caught some of our largest trout on big water years and look forward to what this spring and early summer will bring.
