Fly Fishing for Carp is a unique experience that every angler should try if they have not already. Though carp are often an underrated species, these fish will challenge you technically and test your landing skills. Not to mention they will take you to your backing everytime. Many people compare fishing for carp to fishing for Reds on the flats. Carp are often found cruising the shallows and tailing for crawfish on the banks, as well as slurping spent wing bugs from the foam. Due to this, we utilize a flats boat while chasing these spirited fish, which only adds to the experience of Rocky Mountain flats fishing.
Our guided carp trips accommodate two anglers, with one angler fishing at a time- similar to how you would fish on the saltwater flats. We typically run these trips May through September when the Carp fishing is at it’s best. Equipment is provided as part of the trip at no added cost. However, if you are looking to bring your own fly fishing gear Crazy Rainbow Fly Fishing Guides would recommend 7 or 8 weight rods with quality reels.
Trips start early in the morning and run about 8 hours long. The cost per trip is $575.00 and can be booked through the Ugly Bug Fly Shop at (307)-234-6905.
I have had the pleasure of fishing with the Ugly Bug for almost 20 years. This year was my absolute favorite! I was able to finally take my son for his first experience in a Blue Ribbon fishery
I spent a week in July fishing with Ugly Bug guides Justin, Troy, and Addie (also at the shop) on the North Platte catching rainbows, cutthroats, and browns. I have fly fished most of my adult years, and this was by far the best trip of my life.
THE TROUT, THE RIVER, AND LAURIE STROOPE
My husband and I booked a trip with Ugly Bug for our 31st anniversary and were thrilled (mostly my husband) to go on this once in a lifetime excursion with their female guide, Addie Dees, on the Platte River.
PROFESSIONALISM OF THE HIGHEST ORDER
The Ugly Bug in Casper, WY assigned Dustin White as our guide. The Ugly Bug asked me for my cell number and email address and within 24 hours Dustin texted and called to discuss my goals and expectations.
Course is designed to ‘up the ante’ when it comes to being self-sufficient on the water.
