Wyoming help?!?!?

2 posts in this topic

Since there isn't a state page for Wyoming, I thought this might be my best bet to get some advice on fishing there.

I am heading to the Saratoga/Encampment area to fish the roadless section of the Encampment river in about a week. I have never been there before, I just know it holds some nice fish, is relatively uncrowded, and that is enough for me.

I am having trouble finding information about hatches this time of year. Are they simiar to the hatches on the upper North Fork Platte? I would assume some tricos, caddis, and possibly hoppers in the lower sections, and bwo's if it gets cloudy, but am not sure. Are there October caddis in the system?

Any help, tips, or info would be appreciated. Is it better to head in from the lower(riverside) or upper(hogback) access points? Flows are down to about 100cfs so it will be smaller water which could be good or bad. Thanks for the help if you have any, wish me luck!

I don't have any info on that area but you might try going to [YouNeedAuthorization] and asking the same question.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
