Places to Fish in Wyoming
Afton - Brown trout and cut throat trout fishing
can be done year round on Salt River. You can also enjoy
fishing at the Pallisades Reservation in nearby Alpine.

Thermopolis Hot Springs State Park and Boysen

North Platte River provides a challenge which lends
to the overall experience. The trout here are unusually
strong and it is not uncommon to catch 5-7 pound fish as
well as the occasional 10 pound trout. Standard fishing is nymphing
with a 2 fly rig; streamers are also done on 2 fly set-ups
and dry fly fishing can also be enjoyed.
Flaming Gorge - When fishing here, you will find
large numbers of 8-15 inch small mouths, which can weigh
4 pounds or more. They love anything that even remotely
resembles crayfish—their favorite food. Also at Flaming
Gorge Reservoir you will find lake trout, brown trout, and
rainbow trout. The Flaming Gorge Dam is one of Wyoming’s
most popular fishing areas. This warm muddy water is home
to protected squawfish, razorback sucker, humpback chub,
bonytail chub and the round tail chub.
Green River is best visited during the spring when the trout are spawning
and the large trout have moved into the shallow waters.
Flies recommended are fish egg patterns, scuds, small nymphs,
midges, emerges or riseis. During the summer there are many
recreational floaters but the fishing is still good with
pale morning dun, midges and caddis. In late summer the
small baetis are hatching with a large one being a size
