Man, the message board has been fairly quiet. So we made the Wyoming trip again this year. It did not disappoint at all. The weather was perfect!! 70's during the day and 50's at night. Couldn't beat it. We fished several rivers including the clarks fork of the Yellowstone and the grey bull. Caught several beautiful bows, cutts and brookies. Also fished some of my favorite lakes up there. Luce lake, east newton lake and a lake we refer to as "dry fly heaven " called lily lake. You can catch 100 Yellowstone cutts in a day there all on dry flies. Luce lake is also a fantastic dry fly opportunity using several terrestrials and may flies. Luce is loaded with 16-22 inch beastly rainbows. It's catch and release only so the fishing is outstanding. Also, east newton is catch and release only and produces some absolute monster brown trout. This was my favorite day at newton. I caught 4 big browns on a special clouser I tied specifically for trout. My buddies named it " the Arkansas waterfall " 😎 The other locals there couldn't believe I was catching brown trout on on something not a dry fly or some sort of nymph lol. I said browns are predators and I'm going to treat them as such. And I was the only person who caught any browns that day so guess I was doing something right. It was a great trip and I'll attach some pics. Happy fishing y'all!

Wes was very generous with information/coaching in my early days on the Little Mo.  I am sad to know he will no longer be there.  Judy and I called his green/red/chartrse bead head the "pensylvania" and had moderate success with it but could not match the success that Wes would have.  We hope to fish one more time before the free for all starts on Oct 15.  I assume there are still a few nice fish left in the river.

No generation in a few days and that "new to me" dry fly turned out to be the fly early this morning!! Only got two so must save one to try and copy (good luck with me doing it!!).  Thanks Jeff.

On a sad note, we lost an old fly fisherman.  Wes Traisor died a few days ago.  He will be missed on the river.  I caught fish often on his "Chartreuse Beadhead", he was always better with it than I was, he would tell me "you have to have confidence in your fly". I can relate to his wisdom!

Fishing Reports / fished a couple of days ago
« Last post by hen on September 16, 2017, 03:33:53 PM »
Got back from a trip and fished here a couple of days ago..caught 5, 2 of them were bream! Was a pull on my pole i guess!!!  Caught one on a yellow soft hackle, one on an olive fly and one on a brown fly??? Fish didn't seem real happy or real eager.  Tried a dry fly or two (one a "new to me pattern") but it just wasn't happening for me :-[ :-[  Always a good way to spend  a few hours :) :)

Beware of generation this weekend though. Cranking up I think at 11:00, high water gets to Hind's Bluff in 45 minutes!

While there's some good, big holes downstream of HB, I have my doubts that you'll be able to paddle back upstream on high water... You might try putting in at the Factory Site and going up stream through the Long Pool and then into the Big Hole, the next pool upstream!

Should be able to find some nice bass in there too!
