Fishing keeps improving everyday as we are starting see steady and consistent hatches of pseudos, tricos and a few residual pmd’s as well.  Dry fly opportunities are definitely available just about every morning.   This last cold spell has started to break up some of the moss creating a few more floaties to contend with, but the lower on the river you go the less you seem to encounter.  Top bugs yesterday were tail water tiny’s in rust, pheasant tails, trico and rusty spinners, along with foam post rs2′s.

Another beautiful fall weekend with boats reporting great fishing!  Boats were concentrating from Lusby down to Robertson Road.  We have been greeted with a steady mixture of trico’s, pseudo’s, caddis and a few straggling PMD’s as well.  A nymph rig set up with either an AB or BB weight from 3 to 6ft seemed to be the best rig.  Tailwater tiny’s in rust and black, clouser crawdad, leeches and pheasant tails all caught fish.  Our bird season for pheasants and chukar is in full swing as well.  Give us call and take care advantage of the great weather that is in store this upcoming week!

Fall is in the air and you can certainly start to feel it.  We have had boats spread out from the Mile to town.  The fishing is certainly starting to pick up for everybody.  The lower river below Lusby seems to have the most consistency with crawdads, leeches, hares ears, pheasant tails, and trico and pseudo stuff in the a.m.

Our Upland bird season is just about to get underway next week.  With the upcoming forecast it appears to be a great time to book a cast and blast.  We take you for a memorable bird hunt over seasoned pointers and labs and then treat you to an afternoon of great fishing!  Give us a call to set one up.

Here is a great article in Hatch Magazine about Scott Hunter “Casper Wyoming native and Founder of Vedavoo:

Vedavoo’s existing Tight Lines sling pack is their most successful piece of gear and is beloved by those who own it. Still hand sewn in Massachusetts by Vedavoo founder Scott Hunter and his team, the Tight Lines pack has for several years now been a hallmark in quality and performance. Built with important concepts like balance and center of gravity taken into account, the Tight Lines pack wears light despite its construction out of durable Cordura fabric, stays put without the need for extra, pesky straps and offers easy, well-thought-out access to its contents when needed. It’s a minimalist fisherman’s dream. But for those who like to swing big flies (which get toted along in big boxes) or carry a full load (flies, lunch, jacket etc), it just isn’t big enough.

Enter Vedavoo’s new Tight Lines ‘Beast’ Pack. The Beast builds on all of the successful concepts that its little brother is built on, with the simple added goal of allowing you to carry more stuff. In comes a bigger central pouch, designed to hold a Cliff Beast Jr. fly box (but that will also hold a bevy of smaller boxes), a water bottle holder, a deep, sort-of-hidden pocket for stashing rain gear or other apparel and lots of other thoughtful additions.

Hoping everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend!  The river is now down to 500 cfs.  This weekend we had boats spread from the Reef to Robertson Road.  A small storm this weekend caused some discoloration issues below Lusby, but we should start to see it be on the mend.  The boats that went low came back with reports of great fishing and not much moss to contend with.  The upper river continues to fish with more floating and standing vegetation you just have to move around and find your fishing lanes.  With the cooler temps that we have experienced lately, the fishing should only continue to improve.
