Trout Fishing in Wyoming 2013
Two fly fishing venues will be planned for the upper Green River Valley near Pinedale, Wyoming each year for a minimum of three fly fishermen who will accompany me for a total of four rods. The venue will include five days of fly fishing (7 total days including two travel days), one of which will be a float trip in drift boats down the Green River fishing for rainbows and big brown trout. The remaining four days will involve wade fishing smaller streams in the area for native cutthroat trout. Brook trout will be caught in some of the smaller streams. We will fish dry flies to rising trout, some of the most classic and enjoyable fly fishing you will ever experience. Air travel will be to and from Jackson Hole, WY; lodging will be provided along the Green River. Lodging includes four bedrooms, full kitchen, baths and laundry.
