As we roll in to summer, fishing on the Laramie River gets better and better each day. High elevation sections are warming up enough to support massive BWO and Caddis hatches. A #14-18 Adams Q's Split Flag, #12-16 Gray Headlight Caddis, Or #18-20 Extended Body BWO are good options to target any fish looking up. A hopper-dropper combo will cover the water effectively and can provide action on both nymphs and dries. A #10-16 Tan Chubby Chernobyl or a #8-12 Green Amy's Ant are excellent bugs to float nymph rigs that are on the heavier side. Stone fly nymphs such as the #10-14 Peacock Restless Stone, #8-10 DB Stone, or #12-16 Red Copper John Can be great attractors to get your rig in to the zone and catch the attention of the fish. Caddis nymphs like #14-16 The Ticket, #14 Gum-Drop, or #12-16 Hairs Ear will also turn heads in these conditions. Make sure to stock up at either of the shops before your next trip up there!
