Big Bows on the Green with Guide Andrew Drasch

Fishing has been a little hot and cold with a high winds and changes to the weather! However, 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 most of the river to ourselves and there have been some great fish caught this week with streamers and droppers below a big bug. Give us a call and let’s plan a fall fishing trip. We are also offering  Cast and Blast guided trips again this year: Check out the Cast and Blast page for more details.

Two Rivers Fishing Company is the only local full-service fly shop and guide service in Pinedale, Wyoming. Our local rivers (the Green and New Fork) offer some of the best fishing in Wyoming! 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:  Faler, Muddy Creek and Hocker’s were 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. The season on these small private streams will be shutting down the end of October. We also offer private boat ramps on both the Green and New Fork Rivers and can put you on sections that have not been pressured in over a month.

Green River

The Green River is fishing well and flows have dropped to the low 300s this week. We are entering into our fall weather pattern with cold mornings (avg. 32 degrees) the last week. The fish have been eating big dries and dropper rigs and the fishing has been good! Fishing is better in the late afternoon than at first light. We have been floating everything below Daniel and doing well. This time of the year fishing is great despite low water as the cooler nights and fall season approach. We still have a few openings this next week and into October 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!

New Fork

The river is producing some good fall fishing. Flows are low and the fish are active! Fish are looking up at dries and we are seeing a good BWO hatch if the wind stays down, but the fish are very spooky. If you’re looking to test your dry fly game on some nice sized fish, this river may be your ticket! Call or stop by for an up-to-date report and selection of flies. We have had guides out on this water in the last week and can get you dialed in on this river. Bring a long leader and downsize it for our Wyoming specs-you may have to go 4X or even 5X at times. We are getting a good trico hatch on both rivers, but not many big fish eating them yet.

Seedskadee

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 out there. The fishing has been good under an indicator with scuds, sow bugs, worms, and hot bead nymphs. Streamer fishing has been good as the moss starts to decrease with the cooler nights. 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.  Hands DOWN one of the best rivers to fish in the fall!  

SODA LAKE

Soda Lake is fishing okay if you know how to fish this lake.  The fish have been picky and hard to catch.  Some dry action  (toss a small nymph over the rising fish and strip slowly).  Fall usually sees a big increase of successful fishing on this lake, so we believe that over the next few weeks the fishing will get better and better.
