Re: Age of folks on the forum

52. Every year is a little harder physically, but easier mentally. I know what to do, where, and when, if I can get there and fish long enough! Started when I was under 10, but got "serious" in...

Re: Above Freezing! Finally!

Yep, Green at Little Hole. Two cars besides mine! That bug is easy, one grizz. hackle tip, and one cdc puff. I don't bother with the dubbing on a #20. It floats very well, especially with "Frog's...

Above Freezing! Finally!

I've been waiting for a calm afternoon above 32 degrees for what seems like forever, but in actuality its been since the week before Christmas. Yesterday was sunny, mid-30's, and very little...

Re: DIY Fly Fishing Float Camping Trip

Its been quite some time since I've floated and fished that country, so I'm sure land ownership has changed. I suspect you will need a shuttle for any section though. The issue I see with the...

Re: DIY Fly Fishing Float Camping Trip

Float down! 6-mile to Bennett Peak is a great day-float and fish. Camp at Bennett Pk. Float from there to Treasure Island above Saratoga the next day. You won't have a lot of company. For a day...

Re: DIY Fly Fishing Float Camping Trip

South Fork of the Snake in Idaho would be a good one for 3 days and a couple of nights. Same with the upper reaches of the Green in Wyoming. A fairly close one to CO that could be multi-day is the...

Re: A Proper Hat

Tilley. Love mine. Best warranty. Durable. Comfortable. Works in a rain shower too.

Re: Favorite magazine(s) for fly fishing?

I prefer the electronic "e-zine" articles over the mainstay magazines of the industry. My favorite is Midcurrent. Many are in a newsletter style and seem to have fresher information than the same...

Re: Bighorn mid July vs. Missouri end of June

Look, you're only talking about 4 days of fishing. The Horn has plenty of water for 4 days of fishing, and you can do the guided thing for more time given your budget. Sure, there's more accessible...

Re: Bighorn mid July vs. Missouri end of June

They're both full of trout, and both will be loaded with fishermen and bent rods all up and down at that time. Sounds like a "fish alone" vs. "fish with people" question as you presented it. That's...

Re: I'm new

I'd call/email Headhunters in Craig, on the Missouri R.. A bit of a drive, (150 miles-two hours) but reliable fishing in April. You can fish nymphs, dry flies, and streamers all in one day, and...

Re: How trout see prey behind rocks

Thanks for that SC. Great video. Makes me think about what our flies on the surface really look like to the trout too. Its usually not what we think. I suppose they can see 'em coming better than...

Re: First Trip West - Seeking Advice

There's limited lodging on the MO, but you should try Headhunters in Craig. Worst case, there's tons of lodging in Helena, just 35 minutes away. Airport too, if you're flying.

Re: First Trip West - Seeking Advice

Great advice so far. Really good. Just to add . . .

If "fair number of trout" and "fishing 3-4 days" are together, I'd omit Henry's. The Big Horn would work for the whole trip. 3-4 days...

Pre-Storm Fishing

Maybe the last decent BWO hatch until early spring for me in western Wyoming. Just ahead of the big wind and cool down. It was still in the 20's even on this morning, but it reached the high-40's...

Re: Quick Help on Helena

I just spent 7 days fishing the MO last week. There's a ton of wade fishing options above Craig too. In fact, every inch of water on the east side (river-right) between the dam and Craig is...

Re: Solo hiking in YNP follow -up

Re: Hoback River Report?

Not sure of the water temps, but I blind cast some caddis dries and parachute Adams in there about 12 days ago for a few hours in passing. Small to mid-sized cutties rose one after another. Kinda...

Re: Solo hiking in YNP follow -up

Those are the best words I've read written on that event, and whole subject of the park and bears. Too bad every visitor can't read it. Thanks for that.

Re: It feels like September

I ran the furnace in my little travel trailer the past couple nights on the Henry's Fork, a little south of West Yellowstone. In mid-July. Who'd have thunk it a couple weeks ago when we were...

Re: Must have flies for Jackson Hole area in mid June?

Think caddis and PMD's for hatch matching. 14's, 16's, and 18's. Pick your stage/style, or cover most of them. Emergers, dries, cripples, rusty spinners for the spinnerfalls. Elk caddis are hard...
