Central Wyoming fly fishing is awesome. The guides are reporting excellent dry fly opportunities with the trico spinners in the AM and casting attractors with droppers to likely spots thoughout the day. Grey Reef trout are settling in for their dry fly infatuation which will continue through the end of the baetis hatch in late October. Yes, Grey Reef is in great shape with 2000cfs of cool, clear water and it is a dry fly fishery. Nymphing the runs has been very good and the streamer game is well worth doing. Basically, be prepared to use all available techniques. Miracle Mile is fishing well at the flows are at 1200cfs. It is a bit bit tannic which is the norm. Nymphing is solid with leeches, worms soft hackles and foam wings. Dry fly and streamer isn’t really their gig right now but never say never. Fremont canyon is also fishing well with cool caddis and trico fishing.
It is a great time to rent a boat as the flows are very conducive for fishing the banks with streamers and drys. The Reef Fly Shop has the biggest, newest and best fleet in the region…plus we are only 1 minute from the ramp at Grey Reef. Makes it pretty easy. We can do last minute rentals but you need a 2″ ball and 4 way flat plug to tow the trailer. See you on the ditch!
