Laramie Plains Lakes Fishing Report

Lake Hattie Fishing Report

Lake Hattie continues to fish well, producing quite large rainbow trout, some brown trout, kokanee and perch. Chironomids and leeches are effective as well as larger streamer patterns and crayfish.

Twin Buttes Fishing Report

Twin Buttes is fishing well. The fish have moved out of the shallow water into the deeper parts of the lake. The fishing has been good with damsel nymphs, callibaetis nymphs and dries, and bead head hares ears. The dry fly fishing is very good, including Goddard Caddis, Callibaetis Cripples, Renegades, and Hornbergs, early mornings, and especially in the evenings.

Twin Buttes Information

Twin Buttes is a 250-acre impoundment that contains rainbows and browns averaging 12 to 25+ inches. This reservoir offers the angler a great opportunity to catch a true trophy brown in the eight-pound range. Fishing at Twin Buttes is best in the fall when the browns are trying to spawn. Look for fish to be in the shallows with a gravely bottom. There are two boat ramps and overnight camping, but no hookups.

Galett Fishing Report

Galett had a partial winter kill, but the Wyoming Game and Fish samples show plenty of catchable fish thriving. Damsel and callibaetis nymphs have been productive. Fish are feeding on the surface with caddis and callibaetis patterns early mornings, and in the evenings.

Galett Information

Galett is the smallest of the Laramie Plains Lakes, at only 34 surface acres. It has rainbow trout from 12 to 24 inches and grass carp. We have good carry over fish at Galett the past couple of winters thanks to efforts from the Wyoming Game & Fish aeration systems. This impoundment is an extremely shallow lake with great vegetation growth full of damsel nymphs and scuds.

Meeboer Fishing Report

Meeboer is still fishing well with chironomids, damsel nymphs, and callibaetis nymphs. Dry fly fishing in the mornings and evenings has been productive. Try callibaetis dries and caddis, as well as Hornbergs and Renegades.

Meeboer Information

Meeboer is a 119-acre reservoir that grows fish faster than any of the other plains lakes. Recent efforts by the Wyoming Game & Fish have allowed us carry over fish the past couple of years, which has greatly increased the rainbows average size. Prior to these efforts fish averaged 10-14 inches but now fish in the six to ten pound plus range have been more common.
