Congrats to NPL guide Rick Aune and one of his Two Fly Anglers Scott on a 25.5″ rainbow. That is the largest fish in 10 years of Two Fly competitions. Always proud of our boys. They are either top guides for cumulative points or biggest fish year in and year out. Obviously, competing in fishing is a questionable practice BUT we can toot our horns a little before getting pounded back to humility!
Fishing is still nuts at 2300cfs. Grey Ref 2300cfs, Miracle Mile 1000cfs and Fremont 1450cfs. Baetis, midges and red have been the hot topics. The Two Fly Competition is over and it seems the beneficiaries will do very well this year. Water is in spectacular condition all the way through Casper. A boat might make things a touch easier but wade fishing is still super productive off of the main seams. If you are thigh deep you are standing where the fish want to be.
