Default Spring Fishing in Wyoming

The weather forecast was for a high of 66 degrees and light winds, so I just had to get out of the house and go fishing. I decided to head down to the Green and hit up a new spot that looked promising, after an hour of throwing streamers and nymph fishing and not a single bite, I decided to move on to the spot I discovered on Saturday. On Saturday this spot was just incredible, I couldn't hardly ask for a better piece of water, but how a couple days things change, now the water is off color and after an hour and no bites and a bit discouraged I decide to move on. I then decided to hit up one of my old standby spots and that proved to be the turning point. I started throwing streamers and then later in the afternoon switched to nymphing. The puzzling thing was that there was an incredible bwo hatch coming off and not a head coming up anywhere. At one point I had four bwo's on the bill of my cap, one on my sun glasses and one trying to crawl in my ear. The only thing I could think of preventing the fish from looking up was the off color water.
Here are a few photos from yesterday's fishing:

Good grief Larry,

Those are some beauties. Send some luck my way, floating grey reef next Wednesday and could use some of your magic touch.

Thanks for posting, I keep trying to convince my better half we need to pull the trailer up to your neck of the woods for a few days. This is just more ammo in my debate arsenal.

Larry, you take some awesome pictures! If I can't be fishing, myself, might as well look and read your posts.

Thanks! Best of luck over on the Reef next week, the fishing over there should be in high gear. I might be there also, my wife has some continuing ed class in Casper next week to maintain her nursing license and I might go if we can find a dog sitter. One of the nice features about the Green river is the "FREE" camping, and there are three different campgrounds to spread out and virtually all of the land is public land with a few exceptions which really makes for some pretty nice wading options. The only drawback right now is that the water is getting off color and after I drove by the reservoir yesterday and saw that over half of the north end is mud, it is only going to get worse. The reservoir is pretty low right now and all that mud flowing in from the river and the creeks to the north are going to make things worse, at least until run off finishes and we really aren't even into run off yet. What we are seeing now is just the snow melt from the last couple of spring storms.

Larry
