Outlook

The beginning of August has certainly been a rollercoaster regarding the weather, but the recent cooldown that came with the clouds was a welcomed surprise. While there have been regular rain events throughout the afternoons, the fishing has improved significantly with adequate cover and cool water for hungry trout.

Green River

CFS

Flies to try

Lawson’s Easy Caddis, Agee’s Knobbler Sally, Bank Robber Sculpin

The greater Daniel through Warren Bridge access areas have still been the most consistent areas these days. The upper Green is also still seeing bugs like yellow sallies and caddis. With the clouds, fish have also started eating streamers with ferocity, so if there isn’t an active hatch, they will move on larger protein.

New Fork River

CFS

Flies to try

Bionic Ant, Spanish Perdigon, Water Walker

The New Fork still has some decent instances of small bugs hatching, such as BWOs. Most of the action is coming from large foam flies and terrestrials, especially in conjunction with a dropper.

Flies to try

Chubby Chernobyl, KB’s Sleezy Rider, Humdinger

Below Fontenelle has seen a few smaller golden stones lately, but the best way to find fish on top is prospecting with big foam like hoppers and chubbies. Larger fish are likely to hang out tight to banks and at the bottoms of deep buckets.

Bighorn River

CFS

Flies to try

Jig Head Worm, Sparkle Minnow, 20 Incher Stone

The Bighorn near Thermopolis has seen significant changes in water clarity this past week with all the rain, but it should soon clear up with the week ahead. Try large, gaudy flies that move water and get attention.
