Wyoming Spring Fishin', March 2014

Posted 05-28-2014 at 06:35 PM by mcnerney

Last week I got the chance to do some fishing with forum member qacwac who lives in Jackson, WY. On the first day we decided to do a float on the New Fork river, but unfortunately we got on the river at 1 pm and it was a 10 mile float so basically it ended up being a sight seeing trip as I had to keep the boat moving to be able to hit the takeout by 6 pm. The boat ramps still had plenty of snow but we were using my pontoon boat so dragging the boat across the snow was no problem, but when we got...

A Wyoming Cure for Cabin Fever, March 2014

Posted 05-28-2014 at 06:28 PM by mcnerney

I'm getting pretty tired of shoveling snow off the driveway! Today I got a chance to get out fishing, boy did it feel good to get back on the water and the temp is starting to come up some, so being on the water was almost pleasant instead of some of the brutal cold we have been experiencing. I started out nymphing, but that was pretty slow today, caught one nice Brown and that was it, so I switched over to streamers and had a blast. Nothing really big, but lots of action which made for a really...

Wyoming Fishing with Dorian, Nov 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 06:25 PM by mcnerney

A few years ago we had an active member Dorian.Ducker here on the forum and at one point Davo and I were all set to do a float with Dorian on the South Fork of the Snake, but Dorian had to back out at the last minute as his wife was expecting any day. Last week, I received a surprise PM from Dorian, he had moved from Idaho to Utah, changed jobs and now was looking to go fishing in Wyoming, so we decided to head down to the Green River and see what we could dredge up. We have been having winter...

Wyoming Fly Fishing in the Fall, Oct 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 06:03 PM by mcnerney

With the recent warm spell here in Western Wyoming, I have been taking advantage of the nice wx and getting out on the water. Over the weekend I had a friend from Casper (Rick) come over and we fished together on the Green and a small stream to change things up.

South Fork of the Snake River, ID, Sept 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:56 PM by mcnerney

Yesterday I did a float trip on the South Fork of the Snake River, what a wonderful experience that was. This was a first for me to get on that water this late in the year with the water flows cut way back. I know over the years that Kelly has said how good this river can be in the winter with the low flows, but I had never experienced it. Palisades Reservoir is primarily intended to provide irrigation water to the Idaho farmers and ranchers downstream, so they cut the water flow way back in...
