Serious Runoff

by | Jul 4, 2011 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

We experienced some very hot weather the last few days and the snow is a melting! It’s so hot we have cicadas attacking my lawn mower! They don’t do so well either. We had high water all of June but the last two days we are seeing some torrent flows on even the smallest of creeks. Check out trail creek as it passes through Victor. Also, we’ve had a few houses and roads flooded out, and these pics really tell the story.

Does this mean we are screwed in our fishing? Absolutely not-you just need to be creative. I’ll be headed back to the Legacy Ranch on Wednesday with Tate Jarry and Perk Perkins. Click on the ranch just incase you don’t remember how great that trip was back in May. We will fish the lakes and they will be clear. After this jaunt, during the next few weeks I’ll hit the lakes and probably sneak back to the Ranch on the Henry’s Fork.

I’m always glad to help others with their fishing. If you need advice feel free to shoot me an email. And although I don’t guide, if you need a fishing guide for Yellowstone, Snake River, South Fork River, Green, Henry’s Fork or etc, I have great friends that are fishing guides here in Victor and Jackson, Wyoming.

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
