It’s been a while since I’ve posted on my Blog…been fishing a lot this summer. Mary Ann and I spent 6 weeks fishing in Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado. In Oregon we fished the Owyhee River, in Idaho we fished the Salmon River, Marsh Creek, and Bear Valley Creek, In Wyoming we fished the New Fork River, Savery Creek, North Platte River, and Encampment River. In Colorado we fished the Frying Pan River, Yampa River, Service Creek, and the Poudre River. And, we used a variety of bamboo rods along the whole trip. Here are a few random photos from our “summer vacation”.
It’s been a busy summer so I haven’t posted for a while. Mary Ann and I recently took a 3 week trip to Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho for some fantastic fly fishing. I’ll share some photos from Savery Creek, Wyoming in this post. Savery Creek is a very large working cattle ranch in central Southern Wyoming. They have 18 miles of private trout water on their ranch. And, they put strong limitations on the numbers of guests staying at the lodge so the water doesn’t get overfished. First, Savery Creek is a very small tail water, populated with big rainbows, a few browns, and a few tiger trout. Most of our fish were between 14″ and 20″. All their fishing is guided, and our guides, Bryce and Matt, did a fantastic job. We fished 4 days on the ranch, and never put on a subsurface fly….everything was dry fly fishing, mostly with cicadas, hoppers, ants, and some smaller mayflies and caddis. Mary Ann and I both fished 5 wt bamboo fly rods. Fishing was great, the lodge was great, and the meals were great. All in all, we had a fantastic time and are hoping to get back there next year.
