A fly fishing lodge solely for you and your fishing companion, that’s what the Dubois fly fishing cabin is! Spend the day fly fishing the nearby Wind River and its tributaries, then come back to the cabin and let me cook you a great meal while relaxing with a cocktail on the deck overlooking the Absaroka Mountains. This is the all inclusive fly fishing trip you’ve been looking for.
I strive to give fishing clients the best experience possible, whether it be a float trip or wade-fishing adventure. Years back, Jamie and I purchased a cool A-frame cabin in nearby Dubois, Wyoming. Dubois has been a favorite spot of ours for quite some time and I offer it to my guests as a great fishing option for those who wish to do some serious fly-fishing away from the hustle and bustle of Jackson Hole.
Dubois is an authentic Wyoming cowboy town that has remained much the same as it was 100 years ago when Butch Cassidy walked its streets. In addition to the beautiful landscape, Dubois offers miles and miles of trout water. The upper Wind River is the primary drainage flowing through town and has plenty of browns and rainbows in it, some of which are quite large. Additionally, many of the smaller tributaries offer adventurous angling for browns, rainbows, cutthroat, brook trout and mountain whitefish. Hike in lakes are available for anglers looking to catch a rare Grayling or native Cutthroat Trout. While I primarily enjoy fishing dry flies with guests, it’s not uncommon to nymph fish deeper pocket water, especially on the Wind River. In the spring, floating area lakes in the drift boat allows anglers to target cruising trout with streamers and nymphs.
My overnight trips typically begin with me picking guests up at their hotel in Jackson around 8 am. We then drive over Togwotee Pass, a beautiful drive that crosses the continental divide and puts us at my cabin, where we drop off supplies, in a little over an hour. Then we fish; driving to whatever water is fishing best at the time. After fishing all day, we head back to the cabin and relax for the evening with cocktails, dinner and tunes on the record player. Guests can do a little evening fishing on their own, as the Wind River is just a stones throw away. The following day starts with breakfast and is followed by another great day of fly fishing, arriving back in Jackson in time for dinner. Multiple day trips are also possible too if you’d like to stay and fish longer. If you’d prefer to be picked up so you don’t have to rent a car, I can arrange to get you at the Jackson Hole Airport for a small fee.
Our cabin has Wifi, TV, a hot shower, private upstairs bedrooms and bath, a wrap around deck, comfortable living room, books, guitars and a large collection of vinyl records. Contact me if you’re interested in this trip option or have further questions. I’d love to show you my favorite part of Wyoming! Check out the pictures below…
