The Wind River is murky due to rain over the weekend and runoff. The river peaked today at 106 CFS, the highest this year. Fishing is tough, water temperature is 54 degrees. Baetis hatch was small but apparent late this morning. Today’s high was 59. Run off has started! Lakes between 7-8000 feet are mostly ice free. They have yet to turn over. So far we haven’t seen any Snake River anglers on this side of the divide, but 4 big horn sheep ran over to us to say hi!
