Pinedale Area Fishing Report: 10/13/2018

Two Rivers Fishing Company hosting a 3 Generation Family Fishing Trip on the Lower Green River

We are entering the fall season-which means spawning season for Brown Trout. Please stay away from shallow gravel where trout like to make their spawning redds. Trout below the redds in the deeper pools are fair game to fish for and target, but give the mating trout a little space, so we have many more trout born back into the river!

 

Fishing is Good!  Fall is here and things are picking up on both rivers. The water levels are low and clear, fish are spooky but hungry and willing to eat before the winter comes! We have had some of the best days of the year the last week. Give us a call and let’s plan a fall fishing trip. We are also offering  Cast and Blast guided trips this year. Check out the Cast and Blast page for more details. The weather is forecasted to bring some sunshine this next weekend and some really good fishing!

Two Rivers Fishing Company is the only local full-service fly shop and guide service in Pinedale, Wyoming. Our local rivers (the Green River and New Fork) get fished a lot by “outsiders,” so if you’re looking for a home-town guide that fishes this water day in and day out, give us a call. With walk-wade trips on private creeks, ponds and lakes, half- or full-day float trips, fly fishing lessons, backcountry fishing trips into the legendary Wind River Range, as well as custom fishing trips to fit specific plans you may have, we are the proven authority on fishing the Green River valley. Our fully-stocked fly shop has you covered if you are in the area. We have thousands of flies, a wide selection of rods, hats, sunglasses, jackets, waders, reels, etc. Stop in!

Private Water:  Muddy Creek and Hocker’s have been fishing the best over the last 7 days.  If you’re looking for a private section of water and some hungry fish, ask about these options!

Our local private streams have some of the best water in Sublette County and they do not get over-fished. Ask about Faler Creek where you can catch 20-inch or larger Browns, Rainbows or Cutties. Or come check out Cottonwood Creek, where you can catch dozens of native cutthroat. We also have Hocker’s spring creek and pond where it is a sure bet you will be fighting fish and have a chance at a true 5-pound rainbow trout. We have another section on Muddy Creek that offers over 2 miles of small stream and big fish combos with 3 holding ponds that offer a high population of trophy-sized browns, rainbows and brook trout. A guided day can also be on our Big Sandy lease where you will be fishing in and out of pine trees and true mountain scenery. The moral of the story is that we have some of the best exclusive fly fishing in Pinedale, Wyoming right at your fingertips with these private leases. No crowds and plenty of big fish. Call us up-we would love talk to you about some of these exclusive options to make your Wyoming fishing trip memorable. If you’re looking to catch big browns on a dry fly, 16-20 inch brookies, Colorado Cutthroats, or an easy-going, family-friendly setting where everyone can catch fish-we’ve got you covered.

Call us today to talk about these options

Green River

The Green River is fishing well and flows have dropped to 190 this week. We are into our fall weather pattern with cold mornings (below freezing) and mid-day temps get into the mid 40’s and (if you’re lucky) 50’s. We have been floating everything below 351 and doing well. We have a few openings this weekend and during the week if you are looking to experience some solitude and wild trout! Stop by the shop to see the current flies we have been using.  Ask about our fall float fishing-it may be your next favorite fishing adventure. Many of our guides love this time of the year! Streamers have been the best fishing method.  Some folks round here are still fishing bobbers and worms. The dry fly scene is very thin- gotta have a very calm day and the sun needs to come out for a few hours.

New Fork

The river is very low and hard to float.  If you want to drag alot there are fish to be caught.  Below the East Fork drainage the river is still easy to float and the fish are easy to find.  They are spooky so cast carefully and be out in front of the boat!  Streamer fishing is good if you can get the boat far enough from the banks and pools.

Seedskadee-We have 6 days left open on this river before October 30th.

Working under Wind River Troutfitters, LLC, TRFC offers guided float trips on this fishery. We currently have 2 guides that are permitted to run this section, so call us up and we can get you there. The fishing has been good under an indicator with scuds, sow bugs, worms, and hot bead nymphs. Streamer fishing has been great! We are getting into the best time of the year to fish this section of the Green. The guiding window on this river closes in late October, so book now if you’re thinking about a trip to Seedskadee.  We have limited openings left for October fishing on this world-class river! Spots are limited to one angler a day on this section, so book a date while you still can.

SODA LAKE

Soda Lake is fishing well again and back to clear water. The temps are down and the fishing has really picked up. The browns are eating and getting more active as the cooler nights settle in. Don’t miss the fall fishing on the incredible stillwater. We have some of the best guides on this lake, if you’re looking to learn and improve your skills on stillwater fly fishing!  The Browns and Brookies are very actively spawning right now.  The fish are eating between 5-10 feet deep.  Streamers, leeches, scuds, and damsels are working well. Remember this lake is hot and cold, so dont give up- persistence pays off on this lake!
