Bighorn River in Wyoming
Our Bighorn River Fly Fishing Guide Service is conveniently located in west central Wyoming, in the beautiful town of Thermopolis.
Thermopolis and Big Horn River Outfitters will provide enjoyment to all, young and old.
The Bighorn River starts its northerly flow in the Wind River Mountains, some 200 miles southwest of Thermopolis, under a different identity, the Wind River. The Wind River becomes a tailwater after being released from Boysen Dam some 13 miles south of Thermopolis. This release of water provides excellent Bighorn River Trout Fishing. The rivers name changes to the Bighorn River upon exiting Wind River Canyon, at the sacred "Wedding Of The Waters". We provide the finest Bighorn River Fly Fishing Guides on this stretch of the River. The Bighorn River continues north into Montana, flowing into the Yellowstone River, then into the Missouri, ultimately ending up in the Pacific Ocean.
Join Our Bighorn River Fly Fishing Guide Service and we will take you rainbow trout fishing, brown trout fishing, and cutthroat trout fishing. From the time our local trout hatch and reach 16 inches long these fish grow at a rate of 3 inches per month, which proves to be one of the fastest growth rates in the United States for fish in a free flowing stream. The average Trout weight is 3 to 4 pounds with lengths of 18 to 19 inches, with some rainbows and browns reaching over 10 pounds with lengths of over 30 inches. We have caught and released cutthroat trout weighing over 6 pounds with lengths of 25 inches.
