Wyoming Fly Fishing 1/23/12

We still have some great options for an April lodge trip. and availability for early May. This is arguably the most productive fishing of the season.

Fishing is strong on both a nymph rig and a slowly maneuvered streamer. Trick is to fish between windy or snowy days.

The past 10 days we have had very strong winds along the entire eastern slope. Colorado and Montana are getting it just as bad or worse than we are. We have had a couple calm days and significant snows in between gusts. Yesterday we were greeted to 4″ of new snow on the ground in Alcova. That translated to 12″ on our mountain and nearly 2′ in Southern Wyoming. That is great news for the North Platte River drainage.

Trent, Katherine and JJ all attended the Tom Harpstraith Memorial Youth Hunt in Torrington,WY Yesterday. Tom was a great guy and one of JJ best friends and mentors. He left us suddenly last year. His legacy will be remembered in a great event to get young folks into the field and experience bird hunting.
