Hey Guys, thought I would introduce myself.  Moved to Pinedale in August of this year from Michigan.  I did a lot of fishing there, especially for steelhead and trout, though I did a lot of ice fishing as well when I was a bit younger.  I've loved Wyoming so far, had a great Fall fishing the rivers and lakes around Pinedale.  With winter setting in and the cabin fever already starting to creep in, am thinking this is the year to get back into ice fishing again!  Bit of a different game out here compared to Michigan where live bait and tip ups were a big part of what we did in my old home town of Cadillac.  Hoping to get some ideas here and share what I can with the board about the area.

Been fishing Wyo Ice for years. Just thought it was time to join the group.  A lot of my buddies are on here and the site has a lot of really good information. The season is just starting and I can't wait to get on the ice this weekend.

Fish On

Hello! Been here in Wyoming for my 3rd winter after moving from N.C.. It's been a few years sense I have ice fished out here and that was at Flaming Gorge for Lake Trout and had a blast until the ice started cracking and popping. The family got me a hand auger and a rod for Christmas so I plan on putting them to use soon. Going to try go over and fish Montpelier this weekend maybe, seeing how I am close and haven't caught a perch in years.

Well welcome to Wyoming!  Lots of good hunting and fishing here.  Glad to hear you are fly fishing and tying flies.  Ice fishing is good here as well with many species and fish to catch.

Hi Folks,

             Long time fisherman but pretty new to the ice fishing thing.  Flyfishing is a passion and has been for a while.  Getting geared up for hardwater fishing this year but with the warm and wind here lately, I may be too late for this season!  I hope not though.  Lived in Cheyenne for 39 years, went to Idaho for a year and a half and recently moved back to good ol' Wyo to Wheatland.  Looking forward to learning from the 'pro's' in the area!

Hello,
I am new to the forum and figured I would start by saying hello... I have lived in Wyoming for about 3 years now and have icefished every year I have lived here! I moved here from CA so icefished was new to me, and I love it! I live in the small town of Hillsdale (just east of Cheyenne). Happy fishing to all!
