Mike Kaul – February 2017 Presenter

BIOGRAPHY
MIKE KAUL

Mike grew up fishing the many fine streams and lakes in Sublette County located in western Wyoming.  He has taken every opportunity in the past 50 years to chase the wily trout with a fly rod in this area.  At age 8, under the tutelage of his grandfather an early settler in the Pinedale area, Mike learned and practiced the fly fishing craft with great zeal.  He has introduced fly-fishing to many individuals of all ages and backgrounds over the years and enjoys working with beginners who want to learn the art of fly-casting and fly-fishing.  Mike, a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor, conducts a fly fishing school and guides walk/wade fly fishing trips in the Pinedale area.  He is the managing partner of Two Rivers Emporium, an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Outfitter located in Pinedale.  In the off season, Mike gives power point presentations on fly-fishing in western Wyoming and conducts casting clinics for fishing clubs and other organizations throughout the United States.


WESTERN WYOMING FISHING ADVENTURES
Slideshow Into

The Bridger Wilderness located in western Wyoming encompasses nearly 400,000 acres of pristine forest, lakes, streams, and mountains, including the Wind River Mountain Range.  This vast area of unparalleled beauty, sometimes referred to as the “forgotten wilderness” because of its lack of notoriety, contains 1300 lakes, several hundred miles of connecting streams, 15 of 16 highest peaks in Wyoming, 27 active glaciers, and over 600 miles of trails.  The Wind River Mountains, the largest continuous mountain chain in the lower 48 states, produces the headwaters of a multitude of outstanding fishing streams which include great trout producing rivers such as the Green and New Fork. These venues offer anglers the chance to get away from crowds and pursue a wide variety of fresh water fish to include rainbow, brown, brook cutthroat, golden, lake (mackinaw) trout and the feisty grayling.

Mike Kaul is from Pinedale, Wyoming a small town nestled at the foot of the Wind River Mountains, which serves as a gateway to the Bridger Wilderness.  Mike who is the managing partner of Two Rivers Emporium has taken every opportunity in the past 50 years to chase the wily trout in this area with a fly rod.  He also takes pleasure in helping others enjoy the sport and is a FFF Certified Flycasting Instructor.  Mike will provide commentary and a visual experience on the lightly traveled Bridger Wilderness and focus on the trout streams flowing from the Wind River Mountains and the Wyoming Mountain Range.  In addition to fishing, he will also discuss other recreational activities featured in the area, talk about the rich history of the region and provide information on accommodations and services.
