Two Rivers Fishing Co, Pinedale, Wyoming
Two Rivers Fishing Co, Pinedale, Wyoming
Pinedale Area Fishing Report: 05/11/2018 (posted 5/11/18)
Two Rivers Fishing Co
All right anglers, it’s time to hit the lakes for a few weeks. The ice-out on our local lakes makes for great fishing until the surface water temps start to get to warmer in mid-June. Right now the fish are hungry and looking for a big meal. If you are looking for a clean river, call us up – every great fisherman has a secret spot and some of our guides will share. Each year some of the biggest fish of the season come to the net in May, so call us up and we’ll talk over options for a guided trip-you may be surprised at what we have to offer. Don’t forget, we’re running a May special on all trips, so take advantage of this great deal and book your trip!

Green River
The Green River has been running high and dirty all week. Flows at Warren Bridge are at 2500 cfs as of this morning. The clarity on this river is very limited and consequently the fishing has been tough. The Upper Green on the Forest boundary has been fishing okay, but the water is pushing lots of debris and mud. The road is open now, so traffic will be picking up around the area, but you have to drive almost to the lake on early season dirt roads to find clean water. The lower lake is fishing great and always does this time of the year. We will be watching this river closely so call the shop or check back on the website for an up-to-date report as this river will be changing a lot in May and June. Best options for flies are big ugly streamers in black, white or yellow.

New Fork River
This river has finally spiked! There are still a few sections worth fishing, but below Boulder bridge the water is pretty dirty. Flows are at 2900 cfs as of this morning but may drop a little this weekend with some cooler weather. The rain is keeping things moving, too. Fish streamers and big nymphs looking for little pockets and deeper pools. Slow-moving water along the banks will start to hold more fish as the flows increase. Use big stoneflys or bull-head looking streamers and you can find a few big boys to play!

Seedskadee
This river is a great option for early season fishing. The flows have been on the rise, but the fishing has still been solid. The river is currently running at 2650 cfs and flows will continue to rise over the next few weeks. Most anglers fish under the surface on this tailwater with scuds, midges, worms and leeches. The fishing has been really good below the dam and when the wind dies down some dry fly action has been fun! Streamers work this time of the year, so make sure you chuck them too if the fishing slows down. A sink-tip line is your best bet right now. The flows will probably bump in the next few weeks, so come fish this window of opportunity during the month of May.

Lakes/Soda
Soda Lake has survived the second week and the craziness is starting to wind down a bit. Watch for Memorial Weekend though, it’s always a popular camping and fishing spot during the holidays. The fishing has been good with leeches, scuds and buggers. Use a sinking line to get below the surface a little and fish the depth changes. Fish will cruise the shallows so be careful when wading into the lake. We have a few guides that have this trophy lake dialed in, so if you need a day learning stillwater fishing techniques give us a call. Mid-week is the best time to fish due to the limited number of fishermen. Early morning starts, mid-day Soda Lake feeding time, and late evening offer some of the best times to catch a true trophy brown trout or brook trout. TRFC has a few balanced leeches and buggers that produce big fish on Soda Lake. We are offering fishing trips on this lake to fit any angler’s timeframe and fishing trip. If you want to fish late into the evening and dark, we’ve got you covered. If you want to fish it all day long, no problem. If you want to fish before first light-yep, we can do that too! We have been getting into some good fish at all different times of the day. Let us know if we can help you catch a fish of a lifetime on what we call Wyoming’s Little Pyramid Lake!

Access Issues and Closures
Be careful if floating the rivers below Warren Bridge or on the New Fork. High water season can change the river and bring logs, trees and surprises to a float. Use caution when wading in high, dirty water-currents are swift and river bottoms can change-safety first!

Book your fishing trip today!
Green River: Flows at Warren Bridge are 2500 cfs.
New Fork River: Flows at Hwy 351 are 2900 cfs.
Seedskadee: Flows at Fontenelle are 2650

Guides’ Choice:
New Gear:
TRFC got some new rods in this week. We have a casting area behind the shop if you want to try casting some of these new rods. The Sage X against the Wintson BIIIX is a fun casting comparison.
Fly of the Week: Leeches! Lots of colors have been working- try them all, especially up at Soda!
Float of the Week: Seedsakdee is producing good fish and holds the best option for float trips.
Hot off the press: Two Rivers Fishing Company opened the doors at their new location in Pinedale. Come check out the new shop. We are located on Pine (main) Street across from the old Two Rivers Emporium. Also, stay tuned for our Grand Re-Opening Party coming up May 26!
Rods and Reels: The new fly rods at TRFC will fit anyone’s needs and budget. We have the Sage X rods in and the Winston BIIIX. Both these rods are top of the line and make casting to early season wily trout feel like cheating.

SCSD 1 teams with PAC to provide sports opportunities to 6th graders (posted 5/11/18)
2018-2019 SCSD 1 Budget Reduction Plan eliminates 6th grade sports
SCSD 1 and Pinedale Aquatic Center joint media release
As a part of its budget reduction plan for 2018-2019, Sublette County School District 1 (SCSD 1) has eliminated 6th grade sports. Over the last three years, statewide funding reductions and local tax abatements have resulted in decreasing revenues for the district, and expenditures in the activities budget exceed revenues by $180,000. In addition, very few 3A schools in Western Wyoming offer team sports at the 6th grade level, making it difficult to fill a full schedule for 6th grade competitions.

SCSD 1 is working closely with the Pinedale Aquatic Center (PAC) and local USA sports programs to provide comparable opportunities for 6th grade students for the 2018-2019 school year.

The PAC will be expanding their current programs for football, volleyball, basketball, and track to include 6th grade students. The PAC has an existing partnership with USA Swimming and opportunities for 6th grade students currently exist through that program at the PAC. Questions regarding these programs for next year can be directed to the PAC at 367-2832.

The Pinedale Pummelers, a USA Wrestling program, currently offers opportunities in wrestling for 6th grade students. For more information regarding the Pinedale Pummelers and USA Wrestling, contact Aaron Wilson at (307) 360-7539.
