I fished one day wading in the Cache la Poudre River at Fort Collins, Co via St. Peters Fly Shop guides and one day float trip on the North Platte in Wyoming. Was originally to fish the Encampment River but guide felt the N Platte was best. I did catch some fish and this was on my bucket list. First trip was June 30th and second July 1st.
We returned home from Riverside, Wy via the Snowy Range going north to Larimie.
I thought about you guys on this trip. Took the SS out to Chocolate Bay and it was chocolate. SW wind had even SLP area pretty messed up and the wind.... oh well. Got 3 flounder on a hot pink Catch 2000. Left the water around noon.
Fished East Matty with Mike Frankoff and his son Jared. Had great time fishing them in their Hellsbay Waterman. We did not hook up. Saw very few reds with no legitimate shots. Had a nice at least 15mph in your face, cast killing wind all day. The bay looked like chocolate milk but some clear areas on south shoreline.
