Luce and Hogan Lakes

August 7, 2022 9:00 am

Water temps are too warm at Hogan. Luce is right on the edge of being too warm at the surface, too. Some dry action at both lakes, but we recommend fishing damsel fly nymphs or going deep with Chironimid pupae patterns.  The trout are more active early mornings and early evening.

Flies: Beetles, Ants, Foam beetles, Parachute Adams, Pheasant Tails, damsel fly nymphs, ice cream cones, hare’s ears, balanced leeches and wooly buggers.

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. 

Access to Luce is from the Hogan reservoir parking lot off County Road 7 RP. If the road is dry, access is no problem. If it has been raining or snowing, 4 wheel drive might be required.

Please make sure you fasten the gate to Luce Reservoir to prevent cattle from escaping.
