River Outlook for 2018
We had an awesome 2017 season, there was a great snow pack last winter and the river and lake stayed in great shape all season. The black drake hatch was great , lots of hexes, and an amazing Mahogany Dun hatch. We caught rainbows in the 20-26” and a lot of nice brook trout. Dayton and Sally Hyde did a great job cooking and taking care of the lodge for the 2017 season.
The Williamson River is in great shape and the work we have been doing has paid off very well! We have lots of new holes, and the rainbow populations are expanding and the brook trout are doing well. Our season will open April 22nd this year, the April /May fishing looks to be great with a good hatch of PMD’s. June brings on the Black Drake hatch, July is the Hexagenia hatch and August you can expect hoppers, Baietus and Caddis. September and October we have a great Mahogany Dun hatch with October Caddis and Fall Caddis. The nymph and streamer fishing is productive all year.
We are hoping for another higher than normal snow pack this winter. The lake filled up about half-way last winter and we are hoping it will fill full this year! We put fish in last spring that are doing well and the fishing was great all summer!
We had the opportunity to host Ford Outfitters for a show promoting Ford Trucks and Yamsi Ranch that turned out great. ”fordoutfitters.com” episode 9, Also Catch Magazine “catchmagazine.net” and Todd Moen did a film on the Ranch that is awesome , be sure to watch them.
Please note the rate change will take affect January 1st 2018. The calendar is filling up fast, we look forward to fishing with you on the river and Hyde lake. Hope you all have a great 2018 and thank you for the memories.
