Wyoming Fly Fishing is always a good time but the past couple days have been a party at Grey Reef. Monday was 75* and yesterday we had a pop-up blizzard event that pounded us with a couple inches of heavy, wet snow. Today the roads are clear but snow is on the grass and should be gone by day’s end – 50*. Conditions, hatches and fishing have been awesome at Grey Reef, solid at Miracle Mile and good at Fremont Canyon. Our favorite spring activity is suspended trout eating baetis ( blue winged olive ) emergers with a light rig and a reasonable representation of said bug. Foam Wings, PAL, Mayhem and All Days. wd40 etc all very effective choices. Small red is also producing with the popular pine squirrel leech.
The first week of May is turning out to be very quiet around here so I would make plans! Cottages, RV sites and DRIFT BOAT RENTALS available. Rent a boat and you have access to fish all that water that is unavailable due to being private. Of course, you can’t get out of the boat, beach or drop anchor on private but you can still fish through. The Reef Fly Shop is open all day every day and ready to help with gear, bugs or advice. Swing in for a fresh cup of joe and book a shuttle.
Please stay off of the redds, pinch your barns and ditch the beads!
