Flying Goose on the Fly

August 30th, 2010

flyinggoosefish3Not too far from Jackson Hole, just passed Kelly, Wyoming, Alex and I had the privilege of fly fishing a majestic and intimate setting (Alex and John Turner have the Flying Goose Ranch listed for sale with our company Live Water Properties).  We drove along a curving road above the Slide Lake area.  As we descended down towards the Gros Ventre River, the warm breeze came in through the Ford windows.  We drove in through the gate and parked in a grassy pull-out to gear up.  The evening warm, we felt the sun and could look down into the crystalline water.  Were there trout down there?  Nothing seemed to move but when we began to fish the tides turned! » More: Flying Goose on the Fly

The fishing on our newest listing, the Flying Goose Ranch, on the Gros Ventre River is fantastic. Red hot cuttys coming strong to dry flies.  The dimples on the water in the last image are of rising fish – it looked like the water was boiling with big heads (I broke one off by a massive cutty just as the sun was setting).   For more information on the Flying Goose Ranch, click here.

Fishing the Gros Ventre River

September 17th, 2009

flying-goose3resizedLast week, Ernie Cockrell and I floated the section of the Gros Ventre River just above Slide Lake.  We launched at the first bridge crossing and floated down to the Flying Goose Ranch.  We had good action with yellow hoppers and Adams above the canyon with a few cuttys pushing 16-18 inches.  Things slowed down in the canyon, but picked up again as we entered the Flying Goose Ranch.  Overall a great day on the river.
