  1. Default Hoback Canyon, Wyoming

    I am taking my family camping in Hoback canyon in July. Does anyone have any experience fishing this canyon? Any insight on flies I should be tying?

    This will be our first trip to this canyon but are pretty familiar with the Star Valley area.

    Know this canyon and river quite well, they had quite a slide yesterday. The feeder creeks as well as the main river have nice populations of cutthroat. There is a lot of this river that is shallow and riffley and you may do better to concentrate on the deeper holes and deeper faster water. Point here is, move around if you are not finding fish. Love the Hoback and this area, you will too.

    I like to use a 3 wt or 4 wt rod throwing dries, something like a parachute adams or purple haze works well and in the riffles something that will float well like an EHC, or something bushy like a stimulator but like Cindy said, if your not into fish, move around. I'm sure nymphing would work there also, but I never bother. Lots of spots for camping on the upper end of the canyon.

    Iíve fished it a couple of times and did well with hoppers and elk hair caddis. There are stoneflies too, so you could probably downed with nymphs, but dry flies always scored on the cutthroats for me.

    Looks like you got some good help. One thing I would add is that parts of this canyon had a big fire a couple of years ago. I haven't been there since then, but you might want to keep your areas flexible to avoid eroding or other problems from the fire scars. It may depend on the runoff if there are washout or other problems or not.

    Good luck and have fun. It is a beautiful area!
