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...

Fishin' Kelly's No Tellum' Spring Creek, Sept 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:55 PM by mcnerney

Last week Brian (Liphookedau) was up in Alaska salmon fishing with Ard, then he flew into Jackson and I drove up to pick him up and go fishing together. At the time I was really undecided on where to go. I was really thinking about going into the NE section of Yellowstone NP, but when I saw the mob of tourists in Jackson (after Labor Day) and the progression of cars headed north into the park, I talked it over with Brian and we decided to head to Idaho and invade Kelly's No Tellum' Spring Creek....

Henry's Fork Fly Fishing Trip, Sept 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:52 PM by mcnerney

My friend Pete (from Laramie) and I just got back from four days fishing in the Island Park, ID area, mainly fishing the Henry's Fork. We took Pete's Air Stream up and camped at the Buffalo Run RV park in Island Park. Day one we hired a guide from Trout Hunters to float the north section of the railroad ranch. We found out quickly how difficult the fishing was going to be. Before we launched the guide told us that they measure a good day by each angler getting two eats (not fish landed). We...

Wading on the Green River, WY, August 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:50 PM by mcnerney

Yesterday I ran up to one of the tributaries off the Snake River above Jackson, WY to catch a Snake River Cutthroat to complete my Wyoming Cut Slam, so today I took the photo into Game and Fish, but the two fish biologists were out, so I will try again tomorrow.

This afternoon I ran out to the Green River just outside town for a little wade fishing, throwing dry flies. It was perfect wx and the fish were looking up, very enjoyable day on the water. Here are a few photos of the...

Chasing Colorado Cutthroats, August 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:48 PM by mcnerney

In my pursuit of the Wyoming Cut Slam, today I went after the Colorado Cutthroat. Back in 1999 the Game and Fish started a restoration project on this area of Wyoming where they installed a dam, and then poisoned the fish above the dam, if I recall correctly it involved 2 years and a little over 53 miles of tributaries. Then in 2002 they started to re-introduce the Colorado Cutthroat back into their native waters. So today I got up early, headed out and soon found out I left the map back at the...
