| Overnight in Dubois, a Two Day Fly Fishing Adventure
I strive to give fishing clients the best experience possible,
whether it be a float trip or wade-fishing adventure. Two years
ago, Jamie and I were able to purchase a cool A-frame cabin
over in Dubois, Wyoming. Dubois has been a favorite spot of
ours for quite some time and now I am able to offer it to my
guests as a great fishing option for those who wish to do some
serious fly-fishing away from the hustle and bustle of Jackson
Dubois is an authentic Wyoming cowboy town that has
remained much the same as it was 100 years ago. In addition
to the beautiful landscape, Dubois offers miles and miles of
trout water. The upper Wind River is the primary drainage
flowing through town and has plenty of browns and rainbows
in it, some of which are quite large. Additionally, many of the
smaller tributaries offer adventurous angling too for browns,
rainbows, cutthroat, brook trout and mountain whitefish.
Anglers can expect to fish both dry flies and nymphs. A stay in
Dubois also allows me to offer float trips to the Bighorn river
outside of Thermopolis, WY; an amazing tailwater fishery that
has some true beasts in it.
My overnight trips typically begin with me picking guests
up at their hotel in Jackson around 8 am. We then drive over
Togwotee Pass, a beautiful drive that crosses the continental
divide and puts us at my cabin, where we drop off supplies, in
a little over an hour. Then we fish; driving to whatever water
is fishing best at the time. After fishing all day, we head back
to the cabin to relax for the evening with cocktails, dinner and
tunes on the record player. Guest can do a little evening fishing
on their own, as the Wind river is just a stones throw away.
The following day starts with breakfast and is followed by
another great day of fly fishing. Guest will arrive back in
Jackson in time for dinner. Three day trips are also possible
too. This a great way to fish the amazing Bighorn river;
spening one day pursuing large Brown and Rainbows on it,
while getting to wade fish smaller waters too.
