Just a little break from elk hunting

By Troutnut on September 29th, 2021
After a few days of tiring legwork and mild frustration with the elk, I paused my cow elk hunt for one morning to recharge my batteries with some light trout fishing. I caught quite a few mid-sized cutthroat in a few hours of moderate action, then drove back to the elk woods to pack camp into a new spot in the evening.

Exploring some new water on the Henry's Fork of the Snake

By Troutnut on September 25th, 2021
On the way to my first elk hunt in Wyoming, I planned a morning stopover along the Henry's Fork of the Snake. I figured there wouldn't be much hatch activity, and I wanted to try something new anyway, so I skipped the famous Harriman Ranch section where I normally fish (and collect bugs), and I explored some new water farther downstream, in a place that took some hiking to reach. I brought rods to fish streamers and nymphs, and both were effective.
