Default Golden Trout Big Horn Mountains, Wyoming

Hi all, new to the site and really enjoy. I wanted to get the word out on a great area to fish in Wyoming. I guide in the Big Horn Mountains around the Ten Sleep area. We do some awesome back country trips into the Cloud Peak Wilderness area. This area is lightly fished and offers up 22" Golden Trout, 24" Cutts, and numerous Brookies. We also have rounded up some world class private water in the valley around Ten Sleep. These waters have been producing 22"+ browns and rainbows on a regular basis. The local creeks support strong invertibrate colonies which can be seen in the big hatches and healthy fish. Anyone interested in a great week or day fishing, hit me up or check us out.

I grew up in Greybull, Wyo. your right about the fishing in the bighorns. Good thing that its not a populous area and even though its a tourist route down through Shell, everyone believes they are on thier way to bigger and better fishing in tetons or bighorn or Cody or on up into montana. Its a good secret that even when told doesn't seem to sell like it should.

It is unique country, beautiful and very easy to reach remote areas quickly.

I lived in Greybull for a few years, and grew up in sheridan. I also can attest to the greatness of the bighorns, and the rivers around greybull, hyattville, and down to tensleep.


I dont mind if this guy contributes to the forums, but i am not sure i appreciate people creating an account just to advertise their business.

carter,

Welcome to the NAFF forum. Many of the members live in areas where there are outstanding fishing opportunities.

It is very kind of you to offer to show members around where you fish. You must be a really nice person and the next time I'm in the Ten Sleep Canyon area I hope you'll be able to get some time off work to go fishing with me. Thanks for your generous offer to take us all fishing.

Ard

There simply isn't many humans in that area. I'd still live there if I could make a decent living. I hope our poster "Carter" didn't quit his day job. I've always said I would retire in Shell or Tensleep and fish myself to death.

I left Greybull in '85 and been through there a few times over the years after. If anything, the population has gone down. The fish were still there two years ago, stacked up in mile long "stairs" of pool after pool above and below shell falls. Hiked to and camped at lake solitude for four days as well and it hadn't changed. Once I hit the dirt road I didn't see a human or car...just a couple jets at 45,000 feet. Everywhere you go, you pick a dirt road, any dirt road at any time of the year and in 500 feet your absolutely alone and will be until you leave. I was spoiled back then, too young to know it.

Its far different here in the south.

I grew up is Sheridan as well and learned to fly fish in the Big Horns. I have a picture of me fly fishing on lake Solitude as a young kid, I'll have to find it and post it.
I've fished the Golden's Carter is talking about and if you're ever in the area take him up on it. Lots of Goldens and in good size, he is not bluffing. I absolutely love the area and would also go back if I could make a decent living(and a mall for the wife)

The Big Horns are underrated and wouldn't mind getting lost there with my rod for the rest of my life!

Clint

Clint: I have only been to Sheridan once a few years ago on a bike road trip. It certainly is a beautiful part of WY, I need to get up there and do some fishing in the Big Horns someday, it sure looks like a great place to fish.

Thanks Clint! Will do. I have been thinking of making a trip up to the Bighorn River and I might try to combine that with some Big Horn Mtn fishing.

Anyone one know of a hatch chart for the area. I fish a bunch in the foothills of the Bighorns... on the montana side and rarely fish it early in the season before the hoppers are out. I want to change that and fish it year around. Are there drakes?, March Browns?, Skawlas?, Hex?.. Doubt it's far enough east. Tricos ? PMDS BWOS?
