After what has been arguably the nicest fall in history, it’s finally starting to turn a little here in Central Wyoming. The past week has given us some pretty big wind, temperature swings and a little snow mixed in. Like it, love it or hate it…it is about time. Well then, how’s the fishing? It’s been good! Our crew has been spending a bulk of their time on Grey Reef. Water conditions on Grey Reef are excellent, with fishable water from the Dam to Glenrock. That’s a pile of water! Streamer’s have been the name of the game as of late. We love throwing an intermediate line(airflow fast intermediate) this time of year. It’s our go-to line for the low/clear water in the fall and winter months. A single articulated streamer or two smaller single-hook patterns seem to be the ticket. Our go-to streamers have been a rusty-t, petunia, goldie and/or a kreelex. Keep in mind with the colder weather and water temperatures dropping, you might need to slow down your strip.
In other fishing news, Kortes road from Alcova to the Miracle Mile is open. As far as the fishing goes, it has been really windy but the fishing has been pretty good. Our nymph rig has been 5-6ft with a worm, olive scud and/or a pheasant tail. Streamers have been working as well. A floating line with a 7-8ft leader, tethered to something white has been the ticket (I.E. goldies and white dungeons).
Well, winter is coming. With that in mind, make sure to check both the weather and road conditions when venturing out. Especially those of you headed to the Mile. Stay safe and don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you have any questions.
