Temperatures are to hang in the mid-50’s through Saturday. A mix of winter weather early next week, then back to spring like temperatures again in the Cody area. We need snow in the mountains but will take this false spring weather that is going on right now! Wind will be associated with the temperature spike but the fly fishing should be outstanding.

East and West Newton Lakes are now ice free. The trout are cruising and waiting to be caught!

The blue-winged olive hatch is getting heavier on the Lower Shoshone and Bighorn River tail waters as we enter February.  Dry fly anglers should see lots of action as we continue to look toward Spring in another 6 weeks. Look for heads, land your compara-dun softly, then set the hook!!

Freestone rivers — The North and South Fork of the Shoshone and the lower Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone are beginning to fish very well now. Expect action to remain good – if not excellent – until we see another blast of winter.

Nymphs and streamers have been the go-to flies until last week when trout began to look up for midges and bwo’s on tail water fisheries.
