Default Greys River, WY

These pictures are from an August trip. The Greys is a very wad-able cutthroat stream with 60 miles of public water.

Beautiful water George, I see why you like to fish there. Looks like you could fish great big bushy dry flies all day long.

JP: I have never fished over there. It is on my list, but when I'm in the Alpine area I'm usually headed to the South Fork. It looks like it might be floatable right after spring runoff.

George: Very nice looking cutthroat, congrats!

Larry

It is nice not to fight a crowd, I will find my way there in a couple years. We will be moving to Colorado in about that long and that motorcycle of mine gets 52 mpg and will carry everything I need for an extended trip.

I know that once I am gone from AK. I will miss these big fish but I miss the West now. I miss fishing for trout back in the North East too, you know the saying about the grass always being greener................. The thing is, I've been to the other side of the road and can't make up my mind about the grass.

Yes, nice big dry flies all day long. I fished here (Jackson Hole area) because I have fished the South Fork, which is an amazing fishery, and wanted to find other waters that would allow me to spend more time in the area. Fished Flat Creek, Snake around Wilson and the Gros Ventre, one day each, without much success. I did not get a chance to fish the Salt River, which is in a valley that parallels the Greys, as there appears to be a lot of private water and I was not willing to spend the time on the trip to hunt around for access points. If anyone knows how to gain access to the Salt where it fishes OK I would be interested in hearing about it if the spots can stand a bit more pressure.
Of the 60 or so miles of public water on the Greys I was only able to fish 3 or 4 miles on my two days there. Most fish were 10 - 12" and I only fished dry flies as I mentioned. Just a lovely river, not very crowded and enough cooporative fish to keep me interested.

Larry, there were some people floating the Grey when I was there in mid-August. IMHO a totally inappropriate way to fish the Greys but to each his own I guess.

George: With that much public water, I see your point! I'm used to fishing rivers in Wyoming surrounded by private ranches so the first thing I think of is drifting.

I have not fished The Salt either, I think there is some better public access around Thayne Wy. I just found out an old friend of mine is living in the area, I'll try and contact him to see if he has any info.
