    Default Woming Fishing Trip

    I took a couple days off work to take advantage of the indian summer wx we are experiencing and got in some trout fishing on waters I haven't fished before. We hit the Wind River for about 45 minutes, on the first cast I hooked into a very nice trout but lost him in the rapids, about 20 minutes later I hooked into another fiesty rainbow that came straight out of the water and landed on some rocks at my feet, he fell back in the water and as I tried to put some pressure back on, he did an LDR, when I pulled my rig in I found that the 3x tippet had broken. Argh! On the return trip I have almost the same situation happen, on about the third cast (sight fishing to a 2 ft trout), he grabs my rig and downstream he goes and again I lose my rig, so I retie with 2x and I have two more hook ups but they both do an LDR on me, so no luck for me on the Wind River, beautiful place to fish though. Here are some random photos from the trip:

    Excellent pix from an area you don't hear about all that often.

    How is the fishing in the Big Horn north of Thermopolis? Have a heard a few comments pro & con. Can't blame Red Cloud for his battles to keep his hunting ground.


    Thanks again for the report.

    Thanks! I have not fished the Big Horn at all. If I were to fish the Bighorn it would be up by Ft Smith, that is where the legendary fishing takes place. I've been meaning to get up there all summer, but it is a 6 hour drive from my place and I just seem to get side tracked with all the other good fishing that is much closer. Check out this thread posted by Eric from Bighorn Flies on a trip he made up there this last May: May 17th on the Bighorn

    Have fished the Bighorn near Ft Smith several times, it lives up to it's reputation.
    Give it a try.

    Larry,

    You're holding my favorite fish in your first pic; beautiful Brookie! We don't catch anything even close to that size out here in the East. I've been temped a couple of time to go up to Labrador to give it a try, but I haven't made it yet.

    Great pics, all around! Looks like you had a memorable trip and landed some fine fish. Thanks for sharing.
