Wind River Description

Dubois is considered the most remote town in the lower 48. So if getting away from the crowds and having the river to yourself is something you're looking for, look no further! The Wind River is an amazing fishery with big browns, Yellowstone Cutts, rainbows and brookies. We also have backcountry rivers, lakes and streams filled with wild fish (grayling and golden trout). There is an abundance of wildlife here ...

Techniques & Tips

The best technique right now is to run a dry-dropper setup or czech nymphing. It is not about long casting, but finding soft water the fish are holding in. Streamers are money right now.

7-Day Forecast

Temperatures will remain in the 70's this week. It is key to watch the western skies for thunderstorms approaching. Just know that they will not last long, but keep yourself safe from lightning.
