The rollercoaster continues, with water levels at the moment taking a nosedive after a couple of cold nights. Regardless, the fishing has stayed good with fish stuffing themselves on worms that are being flushed out of the banks. It may not be glamorous, but worm time is the right time for uncrowded water and hungry fish. We’re also starting to see some more activity with bugs as the big stones start getting on the move and water temps kick mayflies into action. There are even scattered rumors of big foamy dries yielding fish…
Hey Ladies! Don’t miss next weekend’s LADIES ONLY fly fishing clinic with Sublette BOCES and local legendary instructor Mike Kaul.

You’ll go over casting, knots, flies, and more that will help get you catching more fish!
The Fishy Stuff:
New Fork River: 1990 CFS @ Big Piney. Worms, worms, and worms. They’re also starting to munch up some of the big stonefly nymphs (Rubberlegs, Atomic Stones, 20 Inchers) as water temps get these big bugs moving. Keep an eye out for some scattered mayfly activity and possibly rising fish.
Green River: 956 CFS @ Warren Bridge. See above. Seriously, it’s worm time. Don’t be surprised if they puke up a gob of worms on your feet.
Seedskadee: 3980 CFS @ Fontenelle Dam. Game over, man. Flows have been increased every day for the past several days and fish are not happy about it. If flows hold steady for a few more days fishing should pick back up for floaters. Wade anglers, it’s probably time to keep your feet dry and not go for a big swim.
