trout fishing wyoming

Recommended Posts

I am also heading over to Wyoming on the 7th of Aug. going into the Big Horns for a week of packing. I talked to one person that has been there before and he said get worms when you get there and a lindy rig type set-up otherwise little mepps spinners. I am bring a ultra light 5' 2pc fishing rod with small spin reel and 4lb. test line. I spent a week fishing trout at Bad Medicine lake in MN and was fishing with 6lb test line and couldn't get a bite for 3 days. Someone there told me I had to use 4lb test line so I switched and couldn't keep them off. I don't know if line diameter makes a difference there but I'm sticking with 4lb line.

I was trout fishing in Wyoming about 9-10 years ago, My friends grandparents live in Lovell so we stayed with them and we went camping a couple of night in the Bighorns and trout fishing, I still remember the names of the streams because they were so unique: Tie Flume and Dead Swede. Loaded with Brookies, one was better that the other and I think it was Tie Flume, just start walking and casting into pools below the huge boulders, there was a lot of elevation drop and therefore the water was moving fast, so the boulders were key, usind a spinner, mepps or blue fox.

It was awesome and a trip I will never forget, we had moose walk up behind us one time and mule deer cross the river just down from us another. I hope to make it back someday.

not a necessity, but i might bring a backpacking fly rod in with ya, or purchase a casting bubble to bring along so you can throw some flies on spin gear......

it's a clear plastic bubble you attach to your line like a bobber, fill half-full with water, and use as a weight to throw the weightless flies used to match some of the insect hatches out that way.....

it can be frustrating standing in a stream with nothing but spinners and live bait when a caddis or mayfly hatch comes off.... the fish key in on the insects and nothin else.......

have fun and good luck.... let us know how you do/did....

oh yeah.... and line diameter is absolutely important...... the smaller the better..... and go with the least visible if you can.....

try and keep a low profile when approaching a stream too--- they do spook easily, depending on the stretch of water you are fishing..... obviously they are more spooky in clear, slow-moving water..... in the faster, more riffly stuff, sometimes you can catch them off your boots....

again, good luck

When fishing alpine streams for brookies have a few white and one black Panther Martin, smaller is better. When a dozen have hammered your lure to the point that you can't make it spin well no matter how much you try to straighten it, use your spare. The black one may work when the white won't. On many trips into the Wind Rivers, from shore on lakes and streams and from casting from a boat, PMs and Blue Fox bucktails are unbeatable for all trout near the surface. Little late but take it from someone who lives in Wyoming: you won't need other types of lures usually. I have been having lots of luck the past two years trolling the 49-cent red/white or rainbow spoons for rainbows, cutthroat and an 18.5" brown last weekend. Just testing my small bucktail theory ya know.

    • the contractor put a piece of trim that drops down into the gutter. So that style will not work. I had them on before I did the metal roof and they worked well.

    • Everything seems to be OK here.
    • I ordered a Somerset  grape vine last spring. Mainly because it is the only seedless grape that is supposed to be hardy enough to grow here. I took it off the wire and laid it down and covered it up with dirt to keep it from winter killing. It came through fine. Just put it back on the trellis yesterday.

    • I like to pick the smaller ones as they are not as woody.  I slice thin cuts off the outside edges and throw the center, batter and fry them.  Yuum! 😋
