Lower Shoshone Tailwater

May 5, 2022 9:00 am

Flows:  1191 cfs. 

The Bureau of Rec have started ramping up flows for the irrigation season.  We don’t expect the flows to rise very much higher than 1500 cfs this year due to a low snowpack.  Be aware of changing water conditions this time of year. Especially while wading.  The fish will most likely be in a funk until the flows stabilize.

Dries: BWO’s, Midges, some Caddis action.

Nymphs: Perdigons, Prince’s, PT, Soft Hackle PT, Tungsten Meathead, Tungsten French Lick, Bloody Mary, San Juan worms

Streamers: Sculpzilla, Peanut Envy, Platte River Special, JawBreakers, Mena’s Slide Bugger.

Should you want an immediate update on flows, water quality, hatches, fly suggestions, we advise you call, not email, North Fork Anglers at 307-527-7274 for that. We also suggest and recommend that you do the same for the 2022 Guided Trip season to reserve dates and guides. We are already getting bookings for late spring and summer trips in 2022. If you have your dates picked out, we urge you to get a deposit made as soon as possible so you don’t miss the chance to float or walk/wade Cody/Bighorn area rivers and streams.
