Teton Wilderness 2013 Part 2

Our Teton Wilderness 2013 trip was very successful this year. High numbers of Cutthroat had entered the creeks and rivers prior to our arrival, so finding the fish was not an issue. These Yellowstone Cutthroat were aggressive and readily attacked our flies. With temperatures in the 80’s hatches of grey drakes, calibaetis, caddis, and yellow sally’s were prolific throughout the days. Although not consistant, these fish were sporatically rising, tempting us often to switch to dries. Locating fish came easy with bright sunlight, males sported bright crimson on their cheeks fading gradually back to the tail. Most fish were in the 20 inch range with many up to 24 inches and averaging 6 pounds.
