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

Dry fly fishing! Dry-dropper rigs and Euro-nymphing.
