Bighorn Brown Red Cliffs

-Fly Fishing Guide | Bighorn River | Thermopolis, Wyoming


The fishing is great. Summer is here and they are chowing crawdads and Sallies. They are looking up to hoppers, tricos, PMD's and PED's. I have not ever seen as many big Browns as we are catching now.  Call John at 307-272-6792.

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.
