SO here we started in Lost Wages for a Family birthday party. Vegas is not my kind of town so Off to Jackson hole.
We hiked for two days and my wife knees where hurting, she said maybe you could fish 1/2 a day..
West side Anglers said they had a guide the next day available, so we did it.
I landed 10 Cutthroat Trout and missed 2-- 18 inchers in a big foam salmon fly.


A great day to be on new waters.
Then we drove to Cody for the night Rodeo, and next day the Little BigHorn battle field.
On To our lodge and Fishing the Bighorn with Jeremy our guide. I have not been there in 8 years.





I landed 3 nice Rainbows on nymphs and then the HOPPER came out in the afternoon.
landed 4 nice browns on the hopper! What a great day on the Bighorn!

Back to Cody for the Wild West Museum. And Yellowstone for 4 days.
The last day I tried the Madison river on my own and landed 4 mountain white fish on drys and had a 16 inch brown break me off on a nymph.
Wow what great trip. If you have never been to Yellowstone plan your trip now!!!!!!

Good report, tigermidge.

Nice fish, and beautiful country. I noticed the foam hopper even before reading your text. Love fishing dries. Looks like it was a good trip.

And I understand about your wife's knee trouble; my wife has the same trouble.

Thanks for posting.

Good report! I was at the Little Bighorn Battlefield in mid August. Somber place to reflect. I’ll never look at the Greasy Grass the same way again.

Man that looks like a great trip. I want to get out there so badly, but it doesn't interest my wife much. It also isn't easy getting away with a 2.5 year old and a 2 month old. Maybe one of these days!

I would love to catch a whitefish. I did manage to catch a few grayling in Yellowstone. I hiked back to 1 of the little pressured lakes. The only grayling I have caught in the lower 48.
