NORTH FORK SHOSHONE RIVER

I finally made it away from the Las Vegas heat for a quick 3 day trip to Cody Wyoming. A friend and I fished the North Fork a few years back and have been dying to make it back to the river. The North Fork has some of the best fishing in the area and its seems as though there is not much pressure due to YNP rivers so close by. Unfortunately we were only able to fish the river for about 3 hours until a down pour muddied up the river for the remainder of our stay.

A few pictures of the river and some of the larger fish I managed to catch.






On the second day with the North Fork brown as coffee we decided to hike  into the Absaroka Wilderness in search of clear water. After about a 5 mile hike in we found more blown out waters. But after another mile we found a good size creek that was still showing the effects of runoff but was clear! We managed to catch a bunch of wild Rainbows and Brookies; but nothing over 12 inches.

Some scenery from the hike....



 

Hopefully next year I will be able to make it back to this area!
