Big Horn River

Big Horn River – Thermopolis

As the Wind River exits the mighty Wind River Canyon in Central Wyoming, the name of this magic tailwater changes to the Big Horn River – yes, that Bighorn River just in Wyoming. Wind River Troutfitters calls this our water home and for good reason. The “Wedding”, as the locals call it , is perhaps one of the most prolific bug factories in the lower 48 and the fish grow strong and determined in the its’ cold water. Fishing for solid Rainbows, Browns and Cutthroats can be nothing short of amazing when the conditions are right – which are often – so bring the 6 weight and extra change of underwear as you might need them! WRTF staff know this river inside and out and generally speaking, we can get you into the action and show you why this water is considered one of the best in the west!
