Guided Fly Fishing — 2017 Greybull Horse Trip
Join us as we return to the Greybull River 12 miles into the backcountry of the Absaroka Mountains, for wild, genetically pure, Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout, camping, laughing, and a true adventure! August 20-24th, 2017
This August 20th-24th I would be honored to have you along on what is truly a trip of a lifetime; find yourself along the banks of the Greybull River in the Washakie Wilderness Area to experience 4 nights of camping, and five days of back country fly fishing for native cutthroat trout. Here’s the bonus; on August 21st at around 11:40 am, barring any cloud cover, we will be treated to a solar eclipse of 99.62% totality at the campsite!! Being only 14 miles from the shadow of totality, we will essentially, and potentially (sans clouds) experience a total eclipse of the sun. The last total solar eclipse of the sun within the contiguous 48 states was February 26th, 1979, with the next one arriving on April 8th, 2024.
This is a trip of a lifetime gang. I can already smell the cowboy coffee as I sit here in the hard winter months; reflecting back on pack trips of the past, the smokey August air, dust, and the bug spray even smell good. On this trip, enjoy riverside camping with Wyoming Wilderness Outfitters as our host, 10 miles into the back country, of which we will ride in on mules maintained by the best. An impressive pack string will carry in our gear and food for our stay, being led by some of the best wranglers in the business. As we ride in, trout can be spotted from atop the mules only adding to the excitement as we ride past beautiful scenery up to camp. Once we get to camp, top shelf breakfasts and dinners will be cooked over the fire each day, with a lunch "to go" being provided daily as well, you will have no reason not to just focus on getting after some quality fly fishing, with a possible nap here or there. The Greybull River is one of the last remaining rivers in the lower 48 states to host genetically pure Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout, making it a top trout river. Fishing is pretty forgiving here. That being said, the Greybull provides a variety of fly fishing opportunities; from swift riffles where almost any fly works, to skinny side channels with spooky, sophisticated cutties taking only the right fly, the fly they want. This trip is for anglers of all abilities, but I will recommend having some fly fishing experience under your belt. The option to hike miles and fish your way back to camp will offer some solitude for the energetic, and riverside access at camp can satisfy the more lackadaisical fly fishers interests. Birdlife, wildflowers, and fauna allow for other opportunities too. Perhaps the best thing about fly fishing is everything else that goes along the with pristine mountain waters that host native trout, all of those qualities ultimately working together to take our minds away from the daily buzz of the real world. The last time I checked, the real world sure was buzzing… Join us this year on the 2017 Greybull Pack Trip to experience an amazing fly fishing adventure, with the very good chance to witness a total solar eclipse of the sun!!! Bucket list material for sure.
