Bates Creek

We try to make our trip to Bates Creek a yearly event, however, the spring weather dictates the quality of fishing each year.

The water was high, but very fishable today.  As we started fishing the kids (Samantha and Max) both started exploring right away.  There were muddy banks, caterpillars and snakes to be found!

We took home a few nice brookies for dinner and left behind plenty for the next group….
What it's all about

Bates Creek Canyon

A 40 minute hike into the canyon and not a peep from Samantha, fishing up the creek for 2 hours and not a peep from Samantha, Lunch in by the creek and not a peep from Samantha….  Gotta love this little trooper!  Keep her fed and in clean pants and she just goes with the flow!!  We spent most of the morning and afternoon at Bates Creek and caught some gorgeous brookies and rainbows.  The water was already like it usually is in June, so it’s a good thing we went this early.

Popo Agie Wilderness Backpacking

What a great trip of backpacking and fishing.  We hiked 12 miles in four days and fished 4 different lakes.  Two of the lakes we fished had small but feisty brookies, one lake had big cutthroats cruising and feeding all hours of the day and the last lake had nonexistent golden trout that had already moved deep.  Scout made this trip with us for his first time carrying his own backpack.  He did a great job of staying with us over big boulders and up steep slopes never slowing down.  This year the mosquitos followed us up the mountain further then usual not stopping until we reached nearly 11,000 feet.  We used a therma-cell mosquito repeller around camp but it had a hard time working at our main camp at 10,500 feet with such little oxygen in the air.  The last afternoon and evening that we were camping we were swallowed up by the clouds and had three different thunderstorms move through with lots of rain/hail, wind and thunder.  It was a neat experience making one remember how tiny we are on this planet.  We found out when we got home this was part of the same storm that killed a climber and stranded 9 other climbers in the Tetons.  Thank you, God for keeping us safe!!!

Bates Creek

We decided to do a little hiking and fly fishing today.  We decided to try Bates Creek.  It has been many years since Erik has been and Michelle has never ventured to this particular stream.  It started as a breezy cool morning.  We quickly realized many things had changed over the years in this area.  The road to the canyon was closed and we were not sure exactly where we were allowed access.  Fortunately we had our gps equipped with public and private boundaries!  We knew, even though we couldn’t drive on the road, we were going to be on BLM land and we were safe to cross to the canyon.

Once we reached water it was evident the day would be good.  The breeze was not strong this low and the temperature was perfect.   We started catching brookies in the first hole we reached.  There were even a few rainbows to be had this day.  We spent about 4 hours fishing up the creek with bead headed nymphs and both caught dozens of brook trout.  It was a very calm relaxing day and we didn’t see one other person on the water- where else on a Saturday can that happen 🙂

Watch the video!

School has started and we are back to being weekend warriors like the rest of the 9-5ers out there.  We raced the kids out the door after school, loaded the 4 wheeler and headed for Dubois.  The plan was to fish for monster Brookies and scout for sheep.
We drove into the Winds and worked our way along Union Pass.  Before we reached Fish Creek, we saw 3 nice bull moose feeding in a pond a couple hundred yards off the road.  We made camp a couple of miles away from the Big Brookie Lake just as it was getting dark.bull moose
Saturday morning we were on the wheeler by 5:30 trying to make the early morning bite.  It was a brisk ride, but a nice temperature for fishing.  We were in our float tubes and fishing long before the sun peaked over the hill.  Erik caught the first fish of the morning.  It was an 18” fat male Brook Trout.  Erik caught 5 fish and Michelle caught two and broke one off.  By mid morning we packed the wheeler and headed back to break camp so we could make it to the KOA in Dubois in time to eat dinner and then look for sheep in the Badlands before dark.  As we were loading the 4 wheeler we noticed something in the front left tire.  We had managed to pick up a fencing staple on the morning ride.  We realized it was wedged deep enough that we could leave it in until we reached town.  When we got to town not one of 4 places we stopped would fix the tire!  Two of the places were ATV sales and repair!!  So, we bought a plug kit and did it ourselves…

Brooke Trout
After making camp and fixing the tire, we ate dinner at a local cafe.  We spent the evening working and glassing the badlands close to town.  We were able to locate two bands of ewes and lambs and learned more about the roads in the area.
Sunday morning we got up as it was getting light and headed for Wiggins Fork Canyon.  We parked the wheeler and hiked all along the canyon rim looking for sheep.  Unlike the last trip, we saw nothing.  Before returning to town we ventured on a road we hadn’t been on before.  It was a good last minute idea because we were able to find another part of the area and there was a band of over 20 ewes within the boundry of Mary’s area.  We will definitely explore this spot more next weekend!

Popo Agie Wilderness

The first pack trip of the season!  We picked up our good friend Chad at noon after Michelle was finished with Popo Agie Wildernesssummer school and drove toward Lander.  We made it to the Fiddler’s Lake parking lot by 4pm, strapped on our backpacks and headed into the wilderness.  It was a 2 hour hike to go nearly 4 miles to our base camp at Tomahawk.  The plan was to take day packs the next morning to Fawn and Thumb Lakes for Brookies, Cuts and Goldens.

We made camp and Erik and Chad fished Tomahawk while Michelle made a hearty dinner of Dinty Moore and tortillas.
Halfway through dinner Chad became very ill.  It turned out he had altitude sickness.  We gave it until morning, but to no avail.  We needed to get out of there while he still had the strength to hike out on his own.  We left camp by 10:30 Saturday morning and safely made it to the truck.
We’ll be back, Popo Agie……

The Big Brookie Lake

brookieMichelle started summer school on Monday, so Erik took his dad and headed for the ‘Big Brookie Lake’ (so we call it) in the Wind Rivers.  We left Monday after lunch and drove to Dubois.  We then headed into the mountains to a high mountain lake that is unnamed.  We call the area little Alaska.
We fished for two and a half days in very chilly weather, although there were few mosquitoes because of it.  By the end of the trip we both managed to catch 15 fish between 15″ and 18”.  We saw elk, mainly bulls, each day and even heard one bugling several times (yes, out of the ordinary for this time of year).
All in all it was a good trip for Erik and Gordon fishing with no one but the wildlife nearby.brookies
