President Blake Jackson called the meeting to order and Pledge of Allegiance, at 7:03 PM at Casper Municipal Golf Course.
Discussion: Fishing Report
Game and Fish have been shocking fish, river is healthy and fish numbers and size look good according to G&F. Morad has good numbers through restoration part along with insect life. River is down to 500, so wade fishing is good. Fishing on the shallows is productive in the afternoon and fishing in the middle of the river morning is good. Bessemer bridge downstream is streamer fishing well with dry fly fishing in the afternoons (Caddis, midge, sedge) have been the best. Streamers are standard size 4 and 6, and using flashy or white colors being the most productive. Brown trout have been caught through the narrows lately. Fishing at the mile has been good on a tan leech, mid day seems best. There is a fair amount of moss.
