Pinedale Area Fishing Report: 12/28/2018

2018 Highlight REEL

With the Holidays in FULL SWING now is the time to start thinking about a FISHING TRIP for the 2019 SUMMER!  We had such a great season this past summer, with so many great memories, fish, stories, and trips out the door here at Two Rivers.  Don’t let another summer pass you by and don’t keep telling yourself  ‘one of these days I’m going to go fishing’!  Bookings for the 2019 summer are happening daily- so get an early date on the books! Below is a list of seasons from the last few years, with a few HOT TIMES to fish our area if your schedule allows during some of our low impact months!

March-April – If you can tough the weather or pick a sunshine day this is a great time to fish the Pinedale area.  The snow if off the water, fish are hungry, rivers are a place of solitude.  Typical day this time of the year is 6-15 fish with a few over 20 inches.  Streamers and nymphs are the best method! Availability EASY

May-  Pre RUN OFF!  This may be one of the best times of the year for a true monster fish!  The water conditions can be a bugger to predict, but the rewards can be worth the struggle.  Streamers, nymphs are in full working mode!  This is the best time to fish big nasty bugs with big lines.  If you like catching fish-  don’t overlook this month.  Soda lake is also re-open for the season and we have had incredible days fishing soda lake this time of the year.  Late evening fishing is best of soda lake and we have some killer leech patterns that the fish just LOVE this time of the year!! We also have access to a few private leased waters that run clear and high this time of the year!  One of our BROWN TROUT trophy leases is on fire when things get muddy on the main rivers! Availability Medium

June- This is a hard month to predict, but don’t overlook it!  SEEDSKADEE is fishing lights out this time of the year!  We get some dry fly action this time of the year down there and some of the best fish of the summer come to the net!  The UPPER GREEN near the lake runs clear this time of the year and is always worth the drive.  If your lucky and have a little flexibility, stay in contact with the shop and plan a short notice fishing trip when the conditions are right and you can have ‘ONE OF THOSE DAYS’ that keep us coming back as fisherman! Availability -Medium to Hard

July– This is our most popular month – hands down – to fish the green and new fork rivers. We start having some world-class dry fly fishing the first few days of the month (sometimes late June) and is usually last most of the month, slowly tapering down mid July.  The GREY DRAKE hatch is SO much fun to fish- hitting it just right can be a little tricky, but early JULY is a giving.  The Streamer fishing can be very good as well giving the right water conditions.  Our shop had to turn away lots of anglers last season during the month of JULY, so if your thinking this is your month –  BOOK EARLY!!!!! Availability – HARD

August – The crowds start to thin down a little this month, but August is by far our 2nd busiest month of the year!  We start to have great BIG BUG fishing on the surface with stones and hoppers.  The rivers are starting to drop and we start to see some mid-day fishing blues for sure on the hot days.  Our guides know and understand our rivers — they have some GREAT days fishing this time of the year and always know which sections are fishing best.   If you like tossing BIG DRIES and FOAM FLIES-  check this time of the year out! Availability – Medium – Hard

Sept- This month is known among our guides as ‘one of the best secrets’!  Hunters are hunting, and the tourist crowds are gone after Labor Day.  Once we have a good cold front move across our area, the fish start to get very aggressive.  We fish streamers A LOT this time of the year.  Water is clear and low which increases the level of skill to catch a lot of fish.  Longer cast, and more stealth behind the rod can make all the difference.  HINT – the weather is almost always beautiful this time of the year! Availability – Medium

October – This time of the year is a little hit or miss with weather, but the fishing is very very good!  We fish lower sections of the Green and New Fork and also spend a lot of time on the SEEDSKADEE section.  Some truly incredible days have happened in October.  Streamer fishing is solid and always brings you the best chance for some big fish!  Availability Medium (weekends HARD)

GREEN RIVER

The Green River is running very very clear under the ICE!  We have a good start to the snow pack this season, but we still need a few good months of winter to be able to predict the summer water conditions better!

NEW FORK

The New Fork is such a special river-  The river is ICE as of know, but this river opens up before the Green and we will start fishing it in March!  We can’t WAIT!!!

An early season brown from the NEW FORK!

Seedskadee

This river is still open near the dam, but the weather is hard to withstand!  We don’t guide on this section until spring!

Lakes

ICE FISHING is in full swing and we have reports of some great fishing on boulder lake, upper green, and new fork lake!

Book your fishing trip today!

Our shop is currently closed for the season, however we will be opening April, 1st 2019

Til next time: Row On!
