Life in the whole valley is fun!! From the Mile to Casper, we are experiencing low traffic and beautiful weather. All the guides have been out enjoying the dog days of summer and are kicking out some big rainbows and browns!! The latest report from the Bureau of Reclamation is that they plan to keep the river levels high until September 6th. This is awesome for our fishery! Keeping the river high and cold until our cooler nights arrive really get protects these fish. When they do drop the river, the big ditch will be on the prowl. 

The high mountain stuff has been in play! We recommend a variety of hoppers and our custom-tied Majerus Ciggy’s! The big ditch is kicking out great fish. However, don’t be afraid to go up the hill! Stop by the fly shop for a map and a few of the latest and greatest terrestrials! There is nothing like a gorgeous hike and nailing a big fish on a hopper. Kind of like “earning your turns” on a snowy mountain! With that being said, all four of our North Platte tail waters and the Big Horn in Thermopolis are staging for an epic fall! The fish are starting to look up, which means primetime for both streamers and dries. With clear water and fish looking up, the big fish are shopping for, what I call, the “impulse buy!” These fish make split decisions this time of year, so jump in one of our boats and be the cashier. Make a reservation with your favorite guide and come for an experience.  We can’t wait to share this beautiful place with you.
