May 07, 2014Big weekend of Fly Fishing

Had the pleasure of fishing with long time friend, Kurt, the past couple days. After a long hiatus, Kurt managed to sneak out for a long weekend. We divided time between the Dubois area and Jackson. While many area waters are blown out due to spring runoff, we had a few tricks up our sleeve. The best day by far was on the Bighorn, where Kurt experienced some fine tailwater fishing. The wind proved challenging on some other waters, but we managed a few fish here and there, making the most of our three day fishing adventure.

Here's Kurt showing off a nice brown he caught just hours after touching down in Jackson...

Our day on the Bighorn was beautiful. A lot of fish were caught subsurface, but by late afternoon, fish were rising all over the river. Kurt decided to hop out of the boat after seeing several sizeable browns feeding in this eddy.

On the drive back to Jackson, we swung up to the oxbow in hopes of seeing a Grizzly bear that's been out and about. Timing is everything, and we got to watch the bear feed amongst the willows. His tracks were fresh...

Overall we had a great time and good to get out on the water and catch up. Hopefully we can do it again next year. In the meantime, I'm headed down to CO tomorrow to visit friends and meet the newest member of their clan. Word is there's a few feeder streams that are fishing well. We'll see....
