Laramie River Fishing Report

Laramie River Report

Latest Update: 5/24/2024

Current Streamflow : 224 cfs @ Glendevy

The Laramie has seen its first major bump from runoff beginning and the recent moisture. With higher flows early on comes larger bugs. Worms and stoneflies will be the main ticket, while caddis and drake nymphs will shine on warmer afternoons depending on flows.

Hopper dropper rigs are a favorite of ours on the river but nymphing deep pools will find your the most success early in the runoff period. As flows bump more, dry fly action will begin to increase when our larger stones begin to fly about.

Don't be afraid to rip a streamer through holes after you have run a nymph rig through them. Sometimes an aggressive fish will show itself when nymphing by them didn't get a reaction.
