Wyoming Summer Fly Fishing: Thermopolis & Dubois Report: Sorry for our limited fishing reports, but Dunoir Fishing Adventures’ guides have been busy in Thermopolis and Dubois, Wyoming guide drift boat and wade fishing trips on the Bighorn, Wind River, and its tributaries. The Bighorn is now at steady summer flows of between 1200-1350 cfs. The fishing last week on the Bighorn was about as slow as we see it for fishing. Now that flows have stabilized we will see “Bighorn Good” fishing again. The Wind River below Boysen Reservoir and the Wind River and tributaries in Dubois, Wyoming are all in perfect summer form. We are focusing on dry fly fishing, terrestrials, and dropper nymphs. Keep posted for more to come!
Just because the Wind River and some of its tributaries are blown out with early season run-off doesn’t mean anglers cannot take the opportunity to fish the many other waters located near Dubois, Wyoming. We have been fly fishing with Teresa and Jeff this week in snow, sun, rain, and wind and have had an absolute blast. Both Jeff and Teresa caught several nice trout despite these conditions. The SoCal couple definitely “cowboyed up” and kept tight lines and reaped the rewards. The best part of fishing in variable conditions is that we had the water to ourselves! The Bighorn River and the Green River flows are coming down but still remain high. We love to fish the big water, so don’t let it worry you should you be considering a trip to Wyoming to fish.
The Dunoir Fishing Adventures crew has had a very busy week fly fishing on the Bighorn River. The fishing has been good to down right outstanding! Hats off to Tim (see photo) and his mother Pat for a fantastic couple of days. Nick, Spike, and I were guiding yesterday and we did not experience the streamer bite that Jeff put his guests on. Fish were keyed in on baetis, annelids, and sow bugs. River flows are still up, but it looks like the Bighorn River will not see the 4000-5000 cfs that they were predicting. Personally, we like big water! The Wind River in Dubois is still blown out, but the lakes are fishing great. Nothing beats a day or two of still-water fly fishing!
