A few nights ago, I had spent most of the day inside hoping for some sunshine. It slowly did and by dinner time it was gorgeous outside. With a full belly, I grabbed my gear and hopped in the truck anxious to get some fly fishing done. The short drive to Flat Creek was well worth it!

Warm weather has brought runoff to most area rivers and streams, besides tail waters. The shed hunters had moved on after the weekend and it was quiet on the creek. There were BWO spinners and a few Brachycentrus Caddis hovering in the air, but no risers. I had a Rubberlegs and Purple Duracell nymph setup from a recent trip on the Snake River and decided to shorten the depth and give it a whirl after knotting on a bright green Caddis pupa.  In a half dozen casts I had landed three nice Cutthroat, one on each fly. One spunky Cuttie even jumped!

Feel lucky to be on lockdown in such an amazing place. Looking forward to Summer. Wyoming is slowly opening back up and we are taking reservations. Come spend some time in nature!
