I was hoping to have some exciting fishing pictures to share after a few outings on the water lately. Due to laziness (sometimes, I'd rather just fish than worry about taking pictures) and some slow fishing, I have nothing to show for myself.
Jamie and I got out on the Snake recently, taking advantage of beautiful weather. We caught some fish and had fun. It's a great time to fish the Snake as large cutthroat are hungry and stoneflies can be found scurrying along the banks, etc. I expect good fishing to continue as long as the water clarity holds up. The Hoback has been cloudy, cause water clarity to drop below its confluence.
Saturday I spent the day with a great client of mine. Looking for something different, we took the boat down to Pinedale, WY and floated the New Fork river. The New Fork is a small, mellow river known for it's challenging fishing for BIG brown trout. I was excited, happy to have a good angler in the boat and hoping to get into some fish. One problem though, when we reached the put in, the water was muddy; quite a surprise. The 30 mph wind didn't help us either. At the end of the day, we got skunked. Yes, skunked. It hurt our egos and left us searching for answers, but at the end of the day, we still had fun and realized sometimes "the bear eats you."
