Weather:  Clear, but quite chilly…air temps were only in the 40s.

Water: Normal depths, and Buck Creek is usually quite clear away from the mouth.

Decided to try my new Herters’ uninsulated waders out at the stretch of Buck Creek at Lemery Park, Wyoming. Despite the cool air, I was perfectly fine in the waders, with only my hands getting cold.  The waders are a great, affordable option in my opinion.  

I was using my fly rod with an assortment of flies, but I couldn’t see any fish let alone catch one, in spite of the fact that I generally catch a fair number of chubs here. 

I am aware of people catching nicer fish down stream from the Byron Center bridge, but I didn’t feel like wading very far, so I kept my pursuit up stream without any success.
