You can have it all . . . Find unlimited, easy-to access recreation in the still pristine Big Horn Mountains and in the Sheridan area. Hike, bike, camp, boat, rock climb or photograph the abundant wildlife and scenery, or test your mettle against a variety of trout! Noted fishing expert Jack Dennis filmed the Big Horns proclaiming great fishing!
Encounter tranquil, secluded streams with crystal clear waters in the valley and mountains of the Big Horns – some of the finest fishing around in wild waters, trophy reservoirs, private streams and ponds, with experts to guide you to the grand slam fisheries.
“Anglers can look forward to a good fishing season with recent spring snows greatly improving runoff forecasts for the Big Horn Mountains” said Wyoming Game and Fish Fisheries Management Supervisor Paul Mavrakis. “The recent snowstorm will be great for local fisheries, with lakes and ponds in excellent shape.”
The high mountain alpine lakes in the Big Horns are predicted to produce quality angling this summer with good trout populations, providing ample opportunity for a diverse array of brown, rainbow, golden and brook trout, as well as grayling, lake trout and splake. Catch the trophy vacation of your life – cast the broad Tongue River or the mighty Bighorn, just a few miles away.
Un-crowded conditions, the great abundance of angling and the fact that an angler can fish the entire season without fishing the same water twice is of great value to sportsmen. Fishermen report experiencing as much or more scenic, pristine angling as anywhere they have been – and all located midway between two world class fisheries, the Bighorn and North Platte Rivers, two of the most famous Tailwater Fisheries in North America. The area offers variety: freestone, still water, and even spring creek angling to mix in with the two tail waters for anglers on longer trips.
The urban ponds, Rotary Park Fairgrounds and Mavrakis, will also provide great opportunities for beginning and experienced anglers alike, with stocking begun in April and continuing until mid-June as the water warms.
“We welcome you as a hunter, angler, wildlife enthusiast or all the above to the Sheridan region, and Northeast Wyoming for a safe and enjoyable time,” said Warren Mischke, Sheridan Region Information and Education Specialist.
