Re: Beginner at Gros Ventre
It's your lucky day...I have been there the past two days, and it has been on fire. In 6 hours of fishing i landed 30+ cuttys. Several large fish for that watershed, in the 18-19" range.
Be sure you have a net with you. Lost the biggest one cause the net was in the truck today and i couldn't get downstream fast enough.
Yellow Sally Stonefly through riffle tails and merging seams, and baetis/march browns in the slack water and back eddies. Saw a few golden stones, but only a few (5).
Seek out the water you are comfortable with, and be patient. There are risers from the bridge off of the highway to Kelly. Also, watch out for moose. they are everywhere in the cottonwoods. Have FUN! Benji
