A little bit of remote cutthroat country..

Fall’s here in Jackson and the fishing is strong. Clients and I
have managed to escape the crowds here and fish some remote
waters around Dubois on several overnight trips. Aside from a
little dirty water due to strong thunderstorms one day, folks have
had a blast getting away and catching some wild trout. Hoppers,
Parachute Hare’s Ears and Hopper/droppers have been the ticket
for all but the most finicky fish. Below is a short video of
Christian hooking up with a nice cutthroat trout.

Lots of fishing’s been going on around here lately, hence
the lack of blog posts. Days have been long, starting early
with coffee and some quick flies being tied for the upcoming
day, continuing to time on the water with clients and finishing
with preparations being made for the next day. Rest will come
this winter. For now though, fishing is the top priority. The fly
fishing’s been good; most trout have been fooled with dry flies
or dry/dropper setups. Although most of my time has been
spent floating on the Snake River here in Jackson, I’ve also
had quite a few days guiding folks on Flat Creek and more
remote waters over around Dubois, WY. Below are a few
pictures from the past few weeks.

son Kory spent a week with me fishing area waters; great folks
and a great fish!

Area Brook trout are starting to display brillant colors in
preperation for the spawn. Here’s one taken on a backcountry
stream in the Shoshone National forest.
