Many areas in Wyoming’s high country are still heavily loaded with melting snow, which means that most of the rivers and creeks continue to run high with poor water clarity. High, fast moving water can also make wading a challenge, if not downright dangerous.
Just because some of the better-known trout streams are “blown out,” it does not mean that there is not good fly fishing in Wyoming right now. During these runoff conditions, I like to focus my attention on smaller out-of-the-way places that escape the dangerous runoff conditions much earlier in the spring.
