    Default Pinedale, WY Fly Fishing

    As you know the rivers out west are still in spring runoff and I was getting anxious about getting out fishing, so last Saturday I finally got a chance to get out fishing with my new NFO Rampage on New Fork lake just north of Pinedale, WY. About a month ago I took the boat out on Delaney Buttes lakes just west of Walden, CO but the wind was blowing 30 mph with gusts to 40 so I didn't stay long. This past Saturday the wx on New Fork lake was just about perfect. I fished from noon to 4 pm, hooked 10 trout and landed 6. I had planned on using the electric trolling motor, but in the haste of loading everything I lost the battery. So instead of exploring more of the lake (as this was my first visit) I stayed close to shore where I launched just in case the wind came up.

    Thanks guys! That new NFO Rampage was a blast to get out on the water and paddle around. With the new girlfriend living in Pinedale, I plan to explore the local area waters, I can't wait for the streams to subside, last weekend all the streams were running full force with spring runoff.

    Hi Larry,

    Pretty fish, pretty weather, pretty lake, just a great day.

    Larry, I know that Rampage is new to you and I was wondering if you are wearing a PFD of some kind? I don't know why that popped into my mind but you old guys have to be careful.

    Frank: Yes, my intent is to always wear a PFD with the Rampage, I agree we all have to be careful when on the water. I heard from my kayaking friend here in town today that there was a canoe that capsized on the Green River above Fontenelle and a small infant died. Not sure what they were thinking about using a canoe up there when the flows are at 12,800 CFS and the river gets real twisty in spots with log jams. Thanks to Fysh I wear a PDF now on the drift boat when I'm in any current, just not worth taking a chance.
