FLY FISHING WYOMING THIS SUMMER
WITH STREAMSIDE ADVENTURES
|The snow has started to melt and runoff is underway. Before much longer it will be the prime time to fish with us in Wyoming's Upper North Platte River Valley.
We still have a few open dates available between the 4th of July and the 12th of July.
Over the years people have asked us about the trips. Here are answers to these questions.
What is the fishing like?
You will be fishing smaller streams and rivers, all of which can be waded. Most of the locations we will take you hold primarily brown trout. The smaller and higher elevation streams also contain brook trout and some have a good number of rainbows. The fishing is primarily dry flies. If you are there at the right time - second week of July - there is the possibility of catching the green drake hatch. We can also take you to some cutthroat streams and give you the opportunity to be part of our "One Day, One Fly, Grand Slam" club.
What equipment will I need?
We generally "wet wade" although some of our guests find the water a bit too chilly for their liking. All we can say is it is "waders optional". A day walking in waders can make for a long and hard day. The flies of choice are size 14 elk hair caddis (olive or tan), size 14 parachute Adams, and size 12 orange or yellow stimulators. A size 8 Pancora crab - a rubber leg wooly bugger - also works well by being stripped in the bigger water. A 3, 4 or 5 wt rod will work on all the streams we will be taking you to. My rod of choice is a 7'9" 3 wt.
What is the elevation?
The town of Encampment is at about 7,000 feet above sea level. The elevation of the some of the streams we fish reaches just over 9,000 feet above sea level.
How strenuous is the trip?
If you can walk a couple of miles you won't have any trouble with the trip. A couple of the locations we sometimes fish do have a bit of an elevation change. If that might be a problem there are other areas we can take you to.
What about the weather?
This part of Wyoming is characterized by dry and moderately hot summers. Daytime temperatures will reach into the upper 80's to low 90's. Nighttime temperatures fall into the upper 50's to low 60's. Unlike the Colorado Rockies, afternoon thunder storms are rare.
