Floating High on the West Fork of the Nunya

July 8 & 9, 2014


blog-July-9-2014-1-flyfishing-in-wyomingThis summer has been a blur.  In fact this year has been a blur.  I’ve hardly done anything normal as far as fishing goes.  Yea, there were a few days on the Henry’s Fork but normally I fish there ten times in June.  It’s been bass, carp, Bhutan, saltwater and a million things other than trout fishing back home.


blog-July-8-2014-2-camping-in-wyomingThis week was time for something that Granny and I love to do.  Something we do because we live in the Yellowstone Country.  Tuesday and Wednesday was our annual overnight float down the Nunya.


blog-July-8-2014-3-brown-trout-fishingIf you aren’t familiar with the Nunya, backtrack on my blog to 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.  And there’s another 20 years of stories but they’re before blog times.  Granny and I have been fishing here for a very long time.


blog-July-8-2014-4-winston-fly-rodsGranny and I loaded up the Exploder Monday night and headed for the brew pub nearest the river.  We met up with a friend and got the fishing and water levels report.  The water was up but the bugs were hatching.  Where Granny and I usually go was too high to float and expect to catch fish so we rearranged things and floated a stretch we haven’t done in ten years.  Things worked out just fine.

blog-July-9-2014-11-flyfishing-for-brown-troutI may have to come back this week!

I apologize for the lack of detail on the last couple blogs.  I have been suffering from TERRIBLE computer issues.  Not just my computer itself but also my internet service.  At this time next week I should have a new computer and already have a much better internet service that doesn’t go down every time lightening strikes.

    No regular fishing…. Well, I can’t tell you how bad I feel for you.

    […] a day or two warming up for the tournament.  He’s right.  Other than July’s float down the Nunya I haven’t trout fished from a boat this year.  Along with us was Mark Kuhn (Milkfish), the man […]

  3. Finally on Home Waters - The Lower Nunya - Jeff Currier - July 16, 2015

    […] Our boat seemed abandoned and until these past two days and my new silver 1991 Explorer had yet to take us fishing.  I don’t like being away so much in the months of June and July but that’s the way it panned out.  Monday night Granny and I headed off on our favorite excursion of the year, a float down the Lower Nunya (see Nunya 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014).
