Bighorn River Float Trip, July 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:40 PM by mcnerney

Mike (mridenour) and his good buddy Rick are currently doing a nine day fishing trip in the Cody, WY area, so it was a good opportunity to get together for a float on the Bighorn. We meet up yesterday at the boat ramp and had a great time (finally getting a chance to meet Mike in person) and an epic day of fishing even though the hoppers weren't out as we had hoped for, maybe we were a little early or they just aren't out in force this year. Here are a few photos from the trip.

Wyoming Float Trip, July 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:37 PM by mcnerney

Last fall we attended a local fund raiser for animals and the GF bid and won a float trip for two, the trip being donated by a long time fly fishing guide friend of hers. She didn't really want to go (she would rather go trail riding in the local mountains). We have a friend in town from Florida that wanted to go fishing so it was a great opportunity to get him out on the water. We have been getting some much needed moisture in the form of afternoon thunderstorms, the forecast was calling for...

Western Wyoming Float Trip, July 2013

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

Yesterday I made it out for another local float, it was an early get up, I wanted to be at the boat ramp at 5:30 am at the latest, this is a long stretch of water and I had to be back home for a 6 pm dinner engagement, besides in the back of my mind I wanted to be off the water before the late afternoon thunderstorms started brewing. Lately we have been getting hammered with the late afternoon storms, but I can't complain as the hay farmers are loving all the moisture. The night before I got the...

Fly Fishing Western Wyoming, June 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:32 PM by mcnerney

Here is a report on a couple days of fishing, the first day was an afternoon wade on the Green up above Warren Bridge, I like that spot as I can bring the new dog and let her run while I fish. As the camping season gets into high gear, that spot won't be an option, but for now there usually isn't anyone up there. The second day was a float on a local stream, and a maiden voyage for the dog. Ard had mentioned awhile back that he bought his dog a doggie PDF, so I looked online and found one. Seeing...

Wyoming Fly Fishing, June 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:27 PM by mcnerney

Well the winds have finally subsided, I thought I was living in a wind tunnel for the past couple of days. Yesterday I did a float on one of the local rivers. I had no real idea of the float distance (upwards of 10 miles or more), so just to be safe I decided to leave the house by 5:30 and get on the water early in case those heavy winds come roaring back in the afternoon.
I started off nymphing, but that didn't work well as the water levels are already pretty low and sitting low in the...
