Fishing Report and News from Mike Kaul

November 23, 2009
With morning temperatures here in Pinedale in the single digits it is time to wrap-up this fly fishing season and start thinking about next year.
We had great moisture in 2009 that really helped increase our water flows, which contributes to increased fish propagation. Higher water levels also present the angler with opportunities to encounter trout in more locations on our many fine streams. This situation delights the consummate fly fisher who enjoys the challenge and reward of fishing all the water.
I am very excited about our fly fishing prospects for the 2010 season. There is still a good amount of snow in the Wyoming Range and the Wind River Mountains, so if we just have an average winter we should have excellent water conditions next summer.
In addition to our float trips on the Green and New Fork Rivers we will again feature walk/wade fishing excursions on our seven private lease fishing venues. These private ranch properties are very popular with our clientele because they have the site all to themselves for the whole day. We strive to rest and rotate the beats on the streams so our customers will encounter fresh trout when they hit these waters.
A new fishing opportunity will be available next season which takes advantage of some great still-water fishing action on our fine lakes in the Pinedale area. This fishing is actually the best early in the season, late May and through the month of June. Those of you who want to visit us early will have these excellent fishing opportunities. Contact us for more details.
Some of you may want to participate in the Wyoming Cutt-Slam. We can provide you an opportunity to fish for three of the four sub-species of cutthroat required to complete the Slam.
Two Rivers Emporium is affiliated with beautiful Half Moon Lake Resort located a short distance from Pinedale. We will put a fishing package together for you that include deluxe accommodations at this pristine facility at very reasonable rates. We also have reciprocal agreements with Lakeside Lodge and Jackson Fork Lodge.
Our goal is to make your visit with us hassle free and enjoyable. We work very hard at this and were gratified to be acknowledged for our efforts by being selected as Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Outfitter of the Year for 2008. You can be assured we will continue our high standard of service and strive to make it even better.

As an incentive to plan early we will give you 10% off one float fishing trip or 5% off one private lease walk/wade trip for next season if your 50% deposit is received prior to February 28, 2010.
