Changing River Levels

How many trips have people taken in the past where changing river levels interferes with your fly fishing trip? My last trip to Alaska is a good example of this. I had been fly fishing for five days with nice weather and the river was dropping every day. The water was very clear with lots of King salmon [...]

Wyoming Fishing Report

I just got back from Miracle Mile Wyoming, the flows were right at 2500cfs which is a good level. However, Pathfinder Res is completely full and has backed the river up all the way to Rainbow Run pull off. Some good Stonefly hatches in the evening up higher towards the dam, mid to lower part of the [...]

Big Horn Fishing Report

The bighorn is alive! The river is holding steady at 2250 cfs and water temps at a pleasant 53 degrees. Pmd's, yellow sallies and primarily black caddis hatches are happening daily.

​Big, Bad, German Brown

RiverBum has greatly expanded our streamer offering. We have hundreds of new fly fishing patterns in, including some big boys and articulated streamers. When you fish these bad boys, you’re not going for volume of fish. You’re going for the King of the river. The biggest, baddest trout in the water.  Want to improve your [...]

​Beetle Juice & Chocolate Ants

For some reason, when it comes to the fly fishing world the beetle and a small ant are often overlooked as a viable fly fishing offering, many folks favoring throwing large Chernobyl’s and the like. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the Chernobyl’s and similarly large fly fishing flies, but they are not right for every situation. Beetles & Ants, [...]

​SA Freshwater/Saltwater Fluorocarbon Tapered Leader: Product Review

Look, I know there is great debate on whether or not Fluorocarbon is invisible in water. While I’m not in the camp of completely invisible, they are for sure darn tough to see. Most rivers are getting into their summer flows. That means our presentations need to be stealthier. I’ve been using SA’s Fluoro leader for a few [...]

Summer Time, Fly Fishing Time

Summer is here, and early summer is one of my favorite times of year to fly fish. I can ditch the waders and wet wade. There’s nothing like a beautiful 80 degree day on a mountain river wading waist deep in 55-60 degree water. It is also the time of year where some epic hatches occur.  Green Drake [...]
