TRFC Guide Eric Oram with a fat Cutthroat

Two Rivers Fishing Company has been hitting the early-season fishing scene hard! If you have not had a chance to fish the Green River or the New Fork you should put it on your to-do list right away. We offer the largest community of local guides in Sublette County. With walk wade trips on private creeks, ponds and lakes,  half-day or full-day float trips, fly fishing lessons, backcountry fishing trips into the legendary Wind River Range, as well as custom fishing trips or plans you may have, we are the proven authority on fishing the Green River Valley. Our fully-stocked fly shop has you covered if you are in the area. We have thousands of flies, a wide selection of rods, hats, sunglasses, jackets, waders, reels, etc. Stop in!

No BS-find flies with serious street cred.

Have you been in and noticed the new Guide’s Choice flies? Each week, our TRFC guides will personally pick proven patterns that they stand behind for current conditions, so you can hit our enormous fly selection with confidence. These hot flies will be rotated weekly based on our guides’ preferences and successes, just another way to show our clients and customers that we stand behind our local knowledge and experience. This week’s Guide’s Choice flies are hand-selected by Bryan Lane, so pop in to see what one of our top guides personally uses on the water.

A beautiful client catch this week!

GREEN RIVER

The Green River has been a little hard to figure out this season so far. We have seen the flows go up and down quickly and with little notice, due to fluctuating weather. The Green River dropped in flows from 2800 cfs to 1600 cfs in 3 days before rising back up again. It has since bumped up a little to almost 1800 cfs tonight. The clarity is improving and we have started to see the rush of boats headed to the river this week. The hot spots are Warren Bridge to the Daniel bridge. The upper sections of the Green are still very cold and the fishing is hit or miss. TRFC guides have been all over the river and if you’re looking for an up-to-date report please stop by. Some of the top flies have been San Juan Worms. TRFC has some awesome new worms in with bull whip leather. The TRFC guides have also been tying up some cool patterns so stop by and check them out!  Ask for the O-Worm of the Lane Cluster. Streamers have been working well too, but seem to have a shorter window of solid fishing.

NEW FORK

The flows are down to 2300 cfs on the lower section, which is a huge drop from last weekend. Worms have been the best fly this week on the river and getting them down a little with a few split shots has worked the best. Fish streamers and big nymphs and look for little pockets and deeper pools. Slow-moving water along the banks will start to hold more fish as the flows stabilize. A worm rig is working best, but we have been seeing very soft takes, so watch your line carefully. Fish are starting to move throughout the system and we are finding them on banks, inside bends, slow pools, sloughs, and if all these spots don’t work-  just remember that fish live in water, so just make sure your fly is wet and keep at it.  We have a few hard-core New Fork guides that literally have been tearing it up on the river over the last few weeks! Let us know if you are interested in spending some river time with them. We have a few open spots in mid-June still so call us up and get on the books. One of our guides actually rigged a dry dropper for the first time this season and had to “GET THE NET!” a few times.

Seedskadee

This river is a great option for early season fishing. Working under Wind River Troutfitters, LLC, TRFC offers guided float trips on this fishery. We currently have 2 guides that are permitted to run this section, so call us up and we can get you there. The flows have been on the rise, but the fishing has still been solid. The river is currently running at 7160 cfs which is a small increase since earlier in the week.  Most anglers fish below the surface on this tailwater with scuds, midges, worms and leeches. The fishing has been really good below the dam and when the wind dies down some dry fly action has been fun! Streamers work this time of the year, so make sure you chuck them too if the fishing slows down. A sink-tip line is your best bet right now. If you have never fished this water-it should be on your bucket list! We have a few spots open for the Seedsakdee section this month. Don’t wait to find your next favorite fishing spot! This section of the Green is among one of the great places to trout hunt in the area, and is fishing great right now.

Lakes

Soda Lake has been fishing well for limited times during the day. Some great sight fishing is to be had in the late morning hours and mid afternoon. Cruising fish are everywhere. Try and get your fly 3-5 feet ahead of the fish and slowly give it some action. Scuds, damsels, or even a dry fly can do the trick right now. Our shop is getting custom-tied colored leech patterns in daily that are proven patterns on this lake. The fish are starting to move into the shallows with more consistency and sight fishing is a good option during the day. Hit the early morning hours and late evening when the fish are more active and streamers, buggers, leeches and mice have been working. Scuds and chrons are consistently working too. Stop in the shop so you can pick up some new lake flies.

Access Issues and Closures

High water is a concern for new anglers. Wading is difficult so be careful! Rapid water flows can change the water on a daily basis, so be safe!

Fly of the Week: Leeches and Worms. Leeches on the lakes and Worms on the river-the fish are literally gorging on worms on the rivers.

Hot off the press:  TRFC custom-tied leeches and new Guide’s Choice Flies.
