We had all done the AIS registration beforehand, and I stopped once for the inspection and drove to Jackson. Another one of our group came in a different route, stopped at the first inspection station she saw, got checked and cleared and drove on. When she drove past another station later, a ranger chased her down and told her she was supposed to stop at ALL inspection stations.

I drift boat in a Vanguard raft and was thinking about heading up to the Snake, but I move it rolled in my truck and have no interest in unpacking and showing it every 100 miles or so.

What's the real rules?
I have no idea. I live in Pinedale and just hooked the drift boat to the truck and drove over to the Bighorn, didn't see any check stations so I didn't get checked. I guess I need to run down to Game and Fish and see what the rules are. I know they have check stations on Fremont lake and Boulder lake, but I have never used them. Last year when I went over to Boulder lake, I just put in on one of the beaches and fished, didn't go down to the boat ramp as I was using a pontoon. I'll let you know what I find out.

Another successful Bighorn trip! I recognize a few of the spots from the pictures. Looks like you guys got some nice fish. I just got back from the upper Encampment area. We hiked in and fished two days there and hit a bunch of small streams and beaver ponds on the way back for bookies. Caught almost every fish of the trip on a big foam hopper or big bushy dry. Pics to come!

Chase: Thanks! Looking forward to seeing your Encampment trip report! Great to hear you had some great dry fly fishing.

I will find your results interesting. All the state website says is you have to register and be inspected.

We are indeed blessed, this is a great place to fly fish! You are more than welcome to drive over and fish with me once you get back in country.

I finally have some time to get on the forum. The trip to Wyoming was amazing and it was awesome to meet Larry and fish with him. I'm going to put together a fishing report on the trip in the next couple of days. We had an amazing time.

Thanks again Larry for making our day on the Bighorn really special.

You're welcome, but you guys also made it a really fun float for me also, I had a blast, just wish the hoppers were a little more active, I love that top water action, but we landed some really nice trout anyway. I hope we can get together sometime in the future and do another float together! Looking forward to seeing your trip report.
