Wyoming fishing reports

Post By: eholm      Posted: 12/3/2023 10:46:53 PM     Points: 17793    
Hey all, Iíve noticed thereís a real lack of updated Wyoming fishing reports anywhere on the web over the past 6 months. The fly shops havenít seemed to be posting updates.

SoÖ for anyone reading this, please letís all chip in and post some reports on this site. Itís really easy. Iíve posted reports on several WY lakes this year. If everyone who reads this would just post an occasional report for the places you fish, we could really help each other out.

As you know, WY locations can be far apart and many of us travel a long distance to get to a fishing location. So a little info is always helpful.

Also you donít have to give away any secret fishing info, even just conditions reports are fine like water level, temperature, (ice conditions in winter) etc.

If any of yíall have any other sites or data sources that you can share/link in this thread, that would be cool too.

Thanks and tight lines

fly shops wont post any updates thru the winter for varies reasons but the main reason is there is very limited open water and they dont want you in the way if they are guiding and or just fishing for themselves which this is the time of year most guides have free time. its just the way it is.

its not meant to be deceitful by withholding info, it just doesnt make sense to giveaway free info this time of year.

i fish southeast wyoming year round and everything is froze over freezing now. tailwaters are your best bet,
m mile, grey reef or freemont canyon. low flows, clear water and small midges and worm patterns.

this report wont change until spring ice out.

good luck & fishon.

I think eholm is more talking ice reports, which is important info to know for safety reasons this time of year. I agree. I like to make a few Wyo trips a year. Will post ice conditions when I do.

OK, I've compiled a list of WY fishing report resources. Please feel free to add to this list by replying in this thread.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I think the fishing conditions reports here on FxR are the best formatted for being helpful compared to any other report site I've seen. They have the kind of data we want, and also conditions history. So... while I'm providing this list of resources... if you visit any waters in WY, please come back here to FxR and post a conditions report. It's quick and easy and I think we can make FxR the best resource in the long run.

Iceshanty forum - while I hesitate to refer you to a different forum, Iceshanty is probably the most popular icefishing-specific forum (which covers specific states other than MN) and some waters do get more frequently reported, while others do not.

Again, if you visit any waters after using any of the above research, PLEASE come back here to FxR and post a conditions report!!
