Default God blessed Wyoming....again!

We got up to the river around 5pm Friday night, set up camp and hit the water. The water was a little higher than I expected and we couldn't cross to the place we wanted to, so we started thowing with what water we had. Right off the bat a cutt(measured exactly 19") hit a yellow foam hopper, he was in 2 or 3 ft of water. This would be the only fish of the day. We should of payed more attention to the depth of water I caught him in cause we kept moving on trying to get into a little deeper water, oh well.
I was throwing a yellow foam hopper with a beadhead bird of prey in tan as the dropper. The caddis were coming off consistently till dark but couldn't get another take.
Saturday was another story. I Started with the same rig and and focused the on the shallow water before tromping out to deeper runs. Right of the bat my buddy missed a take to his foam army ant, he said he wasn't expecting a take.
To make a long story short, the cutts were in the shallows and the hopper-dropper was the ticket. We wanted to get into some bows and browns and after our full of cutts, we nymphed in a deeper water. It was a great trip and we hope to get back a few times before winter. Here are pics of some fish and the river.
Enjoy,
Clint
