Central Wyoming is giving us a show. Fishing, upland, waterfowl and big game hunting all part of the program and really productive. We still have a couple great lodge package opportunities for 2019 as well as cottage and day trip availabilities. Remaining NPL dates:
Oct 9-12 for up to 4 anglers
Oct 16-19 for up to 4 anglers
Have you heard about the Big Horn Basin upland bird hunting and Cast and Blast? These trips are based out of Thermopolis, WY and provide Chukar, Hun and pheasant hunting with the added bonus of fishing the Big Horn River. The birds are available to hunt through January and the fishing is solid all year round.
TTT aka the Grey Reef Trophy Trout Tournament will go live on Oct 24 when 6 teams will compete over the next 3 days to land the longest trout. The 2019 Tournament is full but keep it on your radar for 2020. Lots of great sponsors, events and stuff, but the real draw is grinding out some long days of throwing streamers and trusting your strategy. We’ll update as we proceed.
Wyoming Fly Fishing: The hopper program is mostly over but Tricos, psuedos, crane flies and caddis all are providing banner dry fly currently and will through the end of October. Nymphing is strong and streamers are moderately productive…by this we mean not all fish will display interest but the fish that count likely will.
Wyoming Upland Hunting: The Sage Grouse season is winding down and it has been very favorable. Sorry to the many folks who requested hunts that we couldn’t fulfill! Lets try to get you on the books for 2020. We have Hun hunters out today in the Big Horn Basin and early season waterfowlers at Grey Reef this AM prior to an afternoon of dry fly fishing. No report yet for the upland guides but the water fowl crew collected a number of mallards and a couple geese. Interestingly the teal were a bit stand-offish for them this AM.
Wyoming Big Game Hunting: Our hunting guests are 100% thus far with elk and antelope hunters tagging. We have several more hunts happening through the first week of November. The antelope hunters added that to their program of hunting Sage Grouse and hopper fishing. What a cool trip and it exceeded all of our expectations.
Cheap Wyoming Fly Fishing: We hate to call it that but that is really what it is. Beginning Nov 15th and running through March 14th we offer reduced cottage and fishing guide rates with a super-cheap packaged option. What do you get? A full day guided fly fishing trip with one of our experienced rostered guide, the best private access available in the state (both quantity and quality) and flies. What don’t you get? Lunch…bring your own! The quality of the fishing does not suffer at all and can actually be more productive on a number of fronts during the cheap season. The weather might not be as stable so if you are a tender foot pony-up the extra cash and fish in July. If you are harty and miserly…the cheap trip is for you.
