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...

Wyoming Grayling, August 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:46 PM by mcnerney

Last summer I went out after Wyoming Grayling only to fail, I had three strikes, missed them all, then got ran off the lake by a thunderstorm. Today I went out for a little revenge, the valley is full of smoke, not sure if it is the Upper Green fire or something blowing in from the west, but at any rate it is the first day this summer we have had smoke filled skies. I made it out to the lake early and found that it was way down from last year and the weed growth on the south side made it almost...

Chasing Bonneville Cutthroats, August 2013

Posted 05-28-2014 at 05:44 PM by mcnerney

I just returned from a two day trip down into the tri-basin area of Wyoming. My goal was to land a Bonneville Cutthroat as I'm trying to complete the Wyoming Cut Slam program where you need to land and document each of the four species of cutties that reside in Wyomng (Yellowstone, Colorado, Snake River and Bonneville).
Wyoming Game & Fish Department
I already have a few Snake River cutthroats and I think Yellowstone cutties from fishing in the Wind River Range last summer,...
