I stayed at the Super 8 last year and would not do so again if it were free. Mad

It's a dump and the desk clerk was an idiot.

The main event will be starting at 2pm but the BFT portion is starting at 1pm so we can have all or at least most of the give aways done before the demos start. If other BFT members show up late we will give them their prizes after the main events are over.
Hey Dubob, do you remember how much the super 8 cost for a night? The reason I ask, is to get a cost range from the different motels.

The charge for 3 people was $81.95 including the tax. That was about $80 too much.

That was just about the same price that I was told it cost at the Oak Tree. I was hoping some one that lived there would list some of the phone numbers so I could call and check on prices but I guess I'll check for them on line. Thanks for the info Bob.

I did a quick search of Green River Hotels on Kayak.com.

Here are the results:

Green River:
Oak Tree: $ 66
Hampton Inn: $ 93
Super 8: $ 36

Rock Springs:
America's Best (Value Inn): $75
Holiday Inn $69
Hilton Hometown: $89

These are rates before tax, based on double occupancy (2 people).

Buckboard campground will be open with power and sewer hookups and I believe they said it was around $30 a night. We will be pulling the trailer up and staying for the weekend there.

I would like to get a conversation started on burbot fishing methods and areas to target for your best chance of catching burbot.
The best spots to find the burbot,or ling as the locals call them,is to find any rocky point that drops off into deeper water and
there should be fish there. You can also find them along rocky shore lines but the points are the best.
The ling tend to be in deeper water during the day and move into shallow water as the day turns into night. They will feed during the day but most folks catch the larger numbers after dark. The best baits and lures to use
are sucker meat and glow jigs and after seeing what noise does to the ling, I would reconmend getting away from other groups and try not to make a lot of noise while fishing once you get set up. I have caught them as shallow as 2 & 3 feet and as deep as 30 ft with the best depth being 12 to 15ft. When I fish for them, I like to drill 10 holes or so starting shallow and moving out into the deeper water and then
get set up before dark. Remember everyone needs to have address labels on their fishing poles and your allowed up to 6 poles. I fish with 4 poles and spread them out from deep to shallow and once I catch the first ling I move the other poles to the same area and set up my tent over two of the holes. Many of you know much more about catching these fish than I do, so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong or add to anything I might have left out.

wiperhunter2,
Thanks for the welcome. Haven't been out in a few weeks. Fished Fire Hole awhile back and did well. Hoping to hit something on the west side between Lost Dog and Buckboard night after next. Will keep you posted!

Last year fishing for the burbot I found them under the ice in that wet stuff. Think we can do that again this year?


Yeah i'm a smart ass.Cool But seriously we found the burbot off some cliffs in less then 20' of water I think. Also the three of us were out by ourselves with very quite ice for the most part. Tube jigs tipped with minnow is what I used in my tent.

I fished the Confluence this past Sturday evening from 5 PM till 10 PM, I left early because I didn't want to have to clean more fish! I had three ples out with jigs tipped with sucker meat and never got a hit on any of them! I was jigging a small glow jig tipped with night crawler and caught ten ling from the same hole. They were super fat with eggs, so I hope that you get a lot of people taking them out. Good fishing Wyo_mountains

Welcome to BFT Robert. Got to love it, we receive all of this detailed information on how to catch Burbot (chubs, sucker, crawdads) and you catch them on a crawler.Smile

Nice job, way to change it up and pick-up some fish. How thick was the ice?

I think you got the just of it Curt. If it glows and stinks they'll probably eat it. I also look for rocky structure, like smallmouth habitat, and spread my gear out in a search pattern from about 10-40ft. Sometimes I do better shallow, sometimes deeper, depending on the location and time. I've also had variable catch rates using tube jigs, curly tailed grubs, jigging spoons, and jigging minnow raps tipped with chub, minnows, or suckers. I'll switch up and try them all. Not sure what the pattern will be this year, but as seen above, doing something different whether it be technique or location could equal a good batch of fish. Lots of people on this site have dialed them. Good luck!

Hola List;
When I spoke to Les Tanner at the Buckboard Marina last week, he said it was $18 to camp. I suppose the difference might be no power/or sewer hookups. Also, the Rock Springs and Green River chambers of commerce will be holding a planning meeting for the Burbot Bash. If I can navigate to post here, I will offer an update, or let Curtiss know of the out come. I am pushing for an "most ugly beard" contest since I gave up shaving last week.
More to follow!

Re: [UTFSHR] Post your burbot bash questions here In reply to
hey guys just a quick note. I did a little research online for the hotels in Green River (sorry not Rock Springs) but I kept coming up with different prices based on two beds for two people for one night. So I decided to call all the hotels listed in this Q&A above. Here is what I found from the front desks of each:
Hampton Inn = $85
Super 8 = $52 (new managment)
Flaming Gorge motel = $40
Coachman = does not have any rooms available for 1/23
Mustang = $55
Desmond = phone is not to a hotel but a house
Walkers motel = this is an apartment complex weekly
Western = $40
Sweet Dreams Inn = $71
But here is the kicker Cool when I talked to Barbara Card at the Oak Tree Inn and explained why I was calling she said that normaly the price for two people for one night for a room with two beds it is $70 but because she also likes the big fish in the gorge and would like to see the burbot gone, she is going to give a special deal to anyone who calls and reserves a room telling her that it is for the "Burbot Bash". A 2 bed room for one night is $59 PLUS you get FREE BREAKFAST the next day. But you have to say that it is for the Burbot Bash. She even said you can ask for her if need be. So there is the situation on the hotels.
A few more tid bits, called Wind River Sporting goods (otherwise known as Ace Hardware) and they said they have plenty of bait (chub/sucker meat, worms, mealies and such). Also a usage tag for the Flaming Gorge is $10. They open at 8 a.m. Don't forget to put your name and address tag on your poles.
Well hope this has helped out. Good luck and good fishing to all.

You beat me to the post 5wt. I contacted Oak Tree this morning and they told me Barbara would call me back later today when she came in for work. I went Christmas shopping and when I got home she had left me a message to call her back when I got in. I read your post before calling her back so I had a heads up on the deal she was going to offer us. She also agreed to be one of our sponsors so I hope everyone that is planning on going up and spending the night will stay there and don't forget to tell them you are with the Burbot Bash.
Thanks 5wt, for doing the research and listing the prices for the other motels in GR.

You are allowed 6(six) poles on the ice on the Gorge, 2 on open water in Wyoming. If you fish with more than 2 poles on the ice, you must have your name on each pole. The easiest way I found to put your name on a pole is to you use a return address label and scotch tape near the handle. If your coming up from Utah, you'll need a $10.00 reciprical stamp put on your license to fish the Gorge only. These stamps can be purchased in Manila at the Chevron store, Buckboard marina, Green River Ace Hardware, Rock Springs Ace Hardware, Mr. Al's in Rock Springs, K-Mart or Wal-Mart in RS. Good Luck, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Be safe on the ICE.
