August Fly Fishing Report

During the last 2 weeks, we have had several guests and owners fishing at the Wilder and catch rates on our 2 miles of private Taylor River have been phenomenal. 20 – 30 fly fishing dry fly sessions have been common and the fish populations in the Taylor river are astronomical. Approximately 75% of the fish we catch are wild Browns, 23% Rainbows and about 2% native Cutthroats. Trout populations are estimated at about 6,000 per mile and this is done with no stocking.

Our stretch of the Taylor River can provide dry fly fishing like it was 30 years ago and many of our recent guests have said that they have never before experienced anything like it! When you are standing out in the river and see 50 fish rising all around you, you will know what they mean.
