  1. Wind River Canyon Help

    Hello everyone. Itís been a long time since Iíve posted. Iím looking for some info on the Wind River Canyon. Iíd like to camp and fish in April. Does anyone have any information on the feasibility of this? Iíve heard there are plenty of residents who will allow you to access the river from their property if you just ask permission and treat their property with respect. Are there places to camp around there? Is it even wade fishable that time of year?

The trip involves hauling a couple Skidoo snowmachines from home to the launch site some 37 miles from home. From there you unload and then drive for 74.6 miles over 3 different frozen rivers, islands and finally a 8 1/2 mile course across land. Generally the river portion of the trip is uneventful because they are the main artery of supply and travel into the Interior. These are the rivers that races ...
