The South Fork is a freestone river that flows into Buffalo Bill Reservoir from the SW. Most of the river is private water with limited angler access until the Shoshone Forest Boundary near Valley.
The North Fork of the Shoshone is pretty shut down due to Arctic temperatures that has frozen over much of the river inside the Shoshone National Forest and in Wapiti Valley, west from Buffalo Bill Reservoir. Warmer temperatures won’t be changing these conditions until late February or sometime in March, 2018. That also coincides with the run of native Yellowstone cutthroat and rainbows in the spring.

The Shoshone River is an overlooked jewel offering lots of fine fishing opportunities. The North Fork, South Fork, and Lower Shoshone provide anglers with miles of river to wade or float for wild rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout.
