Oregon, Wyoming, Montana....

#1
The fishing adventure started on the Williamson River in SE Oregon. The Williamson is my home river, and certainly an amazing trophy trout fishery. I caught several fish on nymphs, dries, and streamers, however, I hooked and landed my second largest wild rainbow ever. The resident rainbow, a 25.5 inch 6 pounder (check the pics) put up an incredible fight. This is as close as you get to steelhead with a wild bow. I then traveled to the unmistakenly beautiful Jackson Hole, WY. I fished the Snake River, Flat Creek, and Pacific Creek. This yielded a few rainbows, and lots of Cutthroat. It was then on to Yellowston National Park where I fished the Firehole and the Gibbon Rivers. The weather was cold, but the fishing was great. I got into several browns and a few cutts. Next it was off to Ennis, MT. Madison River here I come!!! I floated the Madison for two straight days. I caught a plethora of wild rainbows, a few whitefish, and some browns. The trip was incredible! Everything from dry flies to nymphs to streamers. There were no crowds...just me the mountains, the fish, and the rivers!!! Take a 4wt. rod...you can really feel the action!!! I personally love my Sage TCL and TXL 4weight rods......If you have any questions about the areas I visited please feel free to ask! I am reasonably knowledgable about these rivers as I fish them several times a year.

Ah, the sweet Williamson! I lived in Klamath Falls for 16 years and that was the first river I flyfished on in Oregon, first fish I caught was a brown out of the Wood River in Ft Klamath.
