Laramie River Report
Current Stream Flow: 28 cfs @ Woods Landing
Laramie Fishing Report:
The Laramie is has become too low and warm for us to expect productive days. The best fishing will be early in the morning, but be mindful and please carry a thermometer. Temps will likely be too hot to ethically catch fish. Fishing dry droppers should find some success and keep your eyes peeled for noses. For droppers think about attractor nymphs such as Bead Head Princes (# 12-16), Montana Princes (#14) and smaller Caddis Larvae. Try E/C Caddis, Chubby Chernobyl's, and CDC Flav Duns for dries.
Streamers are another good way to prospect on the Laramie. Use a stout length of heavy tippet (Maxima Ultragreen or 1x-2x) in lieu of a leader and make sure you’ve got some split-shot or a sinking leader for deeper holes. Now is a great time to use larger patterns and high-contrast colors (i.e. black or white). We’ve been liking Sparkle Minnows, JJ’s Specials, Tequeelies, and Mini-Dungeons lately ourselves.
