In July, I went backpacking and fishing in the Wind River Range of Wyoming. I started at the Scab Creek Trailhead and I hiked around 15 miles into Bonneville Basin. I had great fishing for Brookies and rainbows in the winds with great scenery. The trout were caught on panther martin spinners, Husky Jerk Rapalas, and "safety clip" spoons.
Unfortunately, I took a fall (hurt my back, but now I'm fine), so I had to cancel my plan of 2 more week long backpacking trips. Therefore, I took the opportunity to drive through Utah's High Uintas that I always wanted to see and then I spent a week in Gunnison Colorado, taking it easy by whitewater kayaking and flyfishing the Taylor River for great Brown and rainbow trout fishing. Poor me
This is a video of the whole trip (Backpacking Wyoming and Flyfishing the Taylor River). For those who just want to see the fishing, it's 6.11-9.58 in Bonneville Basin and 16.18-18.20 for flyfishing the Taylor River. Youtube Video of the Whole Trip
Here is one of the Tobacco Lakes around 4 miles in from the Scab Creek Trailhead:
This is a cool shot of a cabin that I found when I was hiking an off-trail shortcut. It was an awesome surprise to find this cabin and another one. Obviously, someone picked a perfect spot with a spectacular view.
The first two days were decent weather, but the 3rd night it dropped into the low 20's and it did not get above freezing until late on day 4. The following are pictures I took from my base camp for 3-4 nights in Bonneville Basin:
