Fishing Report - April 20, 2013

April 21, 2013
The streams around Pinedale are shucking off their ice cover and in the lower parts of our valleys there is a fair amount of open water. Fishable stream water will increase daily, but most of the lakes are still solid blocks of ice. Sections of the Green and New Fork Rivers present good fishing opportunities. This may be one of those seasons where we get some excellent pre-runoff fishing. Even with low water temperatures, the fish are very active and will move on big streamer patterns. We have very little accumulated snow in the lower valleys, but there is a decent snowpack high in the Wyoming Range and the Wind River Mountains. If the projected weather patterns hold for the next 90 days, we should see good fishing opportunities in late April and early May. After a traditional runoff in June, we will have some fine fly fishing beginning in early July and continuing through early September.
One thing is certain; the weather and water conditions will change periodically throughout the next several weeks. Please feel free to contact me for current fishing and water projections.
