Guided Fishing 


Let us show you the ropes!

Wind River Outdoor Company’s sister company – Wind River Troutfitters – is the only Wyoming resident guide service on the famed Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge on the Green River. This river is famous and for a good reason – great fishing, incredible scenery, and unmatched wildlife opportunities. 


 If you like fly fishing in pristine conditions with little to no pressure, then this is the place for you! While the fish count may not be as high as the water in Utah, the Wyoming stretch is home to some of the biggest fish in the State of Wyoming. Nymphing and streamer fishing are generally the ideal approaches, but a well placed dry can bring these big boys to the surface for some genuinely incredible fishing in certain times of the year.


Central Wyoming is our playground

Other waters guided by Wind River Outdoor Company / Wind River Troutfitters include the Big Horn River at Thermopolis, Wyoming, and several small streams in and around the Lander, WY area. The Big Horn is particularly advantageous in Spring, and late Fall, the streams around Lander are great from July through mid-October.



Recommended Gear

Your trip with Wind River Troutfitters includes rod, reels and flies. However, we encourage clients to use their own equipment if possible, because of the familiarity with it. Guides will tell you if your equipment is satisfactory.
