Upper and Lower Sunshine Reservoirs

June 20, 2022 9:00 am

Fishing is fair to good. These lakes are getting pounded by the bait fishers. The bigger trout are in Lower Sunshine, while upper Sunshine has smaller Yellowstone cutthroat.  This is a really good time for some bugger action off the banks or by fishing deep with Ice cream cones, zebra midges and or Callibaetis nymphs and emergers. As the water warms, the trout will begin looking up for parachute Adams, adult damsels, ants and beetles.

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.
