Fly Fishing Wyoming

Hams Fork Hopper Fishing

The day started off with a 19" rainbow slamming a hopper. Not a bad way to kick things off, and fortunately for us our luck continued. I would not have considered it "fast" fishing, but we were able to carefully work the water and produce some very nice fish for our efforts. Half the fish hit the hopper, while the other half ate small nymphs dropped below. The Hams Fork is a fantastic river to fish in southwestern Wyoming, and the rainbows are some of the feistiest I have caught in a while. Although much of the river is private you can pay a local rancher $10 to fish much of the river. It is worth the small payment in exchange for some excellent opportunities at very large healthy trout.
