  Your Guide To Fly Fishing Wyoming's Bighorn River

Fly Fishing  Guide | Bighorn River | Thermopolis, Wyoming

The fishing has been excellent this year.  The flows are  starting to go down  and clearing. The moss is an issue but with the flows going down we have gone to drys. Trico hatches are going off and we have never seen so many hoppers along the banks.  We have taken some nice Browns on streamers this year and nymphs are always a solid way to get into numbers. The quality of fish have been very impressive with the average trout in the 17"-18" range with plenty in the 20" + range. The Bighorn is in great shape and the crowds have gone away. Come get into some exceptional fishing. Book your trip now.

Why fly fish the Bighorn in Wyoming? Why us?


Wyoming Adventures Fly Fishing  Guide Service has been operating in Thermopolis for over 20 years. As a matter of fact we are the only locally owned service available for fishing the Bighorn River in Thermopolis, Wyoming. This  gives us a leg up with any competitors due to the fact that we are on the river countless hours a year and are in tune with the trout behaviors and feeding trends from season to season. This stretch of the Bighorn is special due to population (2500-3000/mi.) and average sized fish (16"-18") I don't know of any other place that can boast as we can. Every trip with few exceptions you will have the opportunity to catch trout ( Rainbows, Browns, and Cutthroat) in the 20"+ range. For most of the year casting dries to rising trout mixed with blind casting terrestrials means that you will find most of your trout on the surface. That with many productive streamer and nymph days keeps everyone happy no matter what tactic of catching fish your into.  Also understand that there are many days where you can still be one of the only boats on the river. This makes the experience for the angler something that's special and rare today.  Join us for Fly Fishing on the Bighorn River in Wyoming.
