Frosty Fishing

Happy belated new year, everybody! As expected, the days have been short and cold here in Pinedale. With some solid late December and early January snow we are maintaining solid snowpack levels for both the Wind River Range and the Wyoming Range, even with our recent dry spell. We are currently anticipating a healthy runoff and happy fish this season, and we are keeping our fingers crossed for a wet March and cold April to help keep our snowpack strong.

The fishing below Fontenelle Reservoir on the Green is fishing well this winter, with lots of sunny days and hungry trout. Fish have been eating mostly nymphs: Two-Bit Hookers, plain bead head Pheasant Tails and hot head scuds have been productive, as well as small midge patterns like WD-40s and Manhattans.

We have noticed strong bookings so far in the new year, and our guided days are really beginning to fill up toward late June and throughout July. If you are planning a trip on the Green or New Fork this summer, we recommend claiming your spot as soon as you can. Feel free to reach out directly with any questions whatsoever!

As our season continues to develop, we’ll be posting regular updates, so sign up below to make sure you never miss a report. We look forward to another fantastic season with our amazing guides and outstanding clients-see you all April first!
