What to Pack for a Fly Fishing Trip to Wyoming
Like any mountain state, the weather in Wyoming can change dramatically by elevation and throughout the day. Add the fact that places like Big Piney and Yellowstone Lake regularly make the National Weather Service’s daily low temperature records for the lower 48 states, and you’ll want to make sure you have the proper clothing layers for your next fly-fishing trip to Wyoming. Let’s take a look at some key clothing, fishing gear and accessories to bring with you, whether you’re headed to Jackson or Laramie, Sand Creek or the Miracle Mile.
A wicking and insulating base layer – Long-sleeved or short, merino or synthetic, a wicking base layer that can retain some body heat is a necessity for active trips to Wyoming. Even if it’s a sunny day in August, the mornings and evenings can be quite chilly. A short-sleeved synthetic tee for the warmest afternoons, and a long-sleeved quarter-zip shirt will provide a solid base for just about any conditions the Wyoming fishing season can throw at you.
