Bighorn / Wind River

November 9, 2021 9:00 am

Flows have been reduced to winter levels on the Bighorn/Wind River.

We apologize for not updating our fishing report pages as regularly as some of you would like to see. Without making a lot of excuses, it is because North Fork Anglers cannot sit at the computer all day posting updates. We are still guiding anglers taking advantage of the low flows and mild fall weather, as well as answering phones, helping retail customers, etc. We do hope you understand our predicament and forgive us for any oversight when it comes to the fishing reports. 

So, thank you to the guided trip guests and those that came into the shop during 2021 to purchase flies, leaders, tippets, new fly rods, fly reels, fly lines, clothing and gear despite the lack of current information on the area fishing conditions. We appreciate each and every angler that has kept our doors open since the Covid ‘crisis’ began in 2020.

Should you want an immediate update on flows, water quality, hatches, fly suggestions, we advise you call, not email, North Fork Anglers at 307-527-7274 for that. We also suggest and recommend that you do the same for the 2022 Guided Trip season to reserve dates and guides. We are already getting bookings for late spring and summer trips in 2022. If  you have your dates picked out, we urge you to get a deposit made as soon as possible so you don’t miss the chance to float or walk/wade Cody/Bighorn area rivers and streams. 

Book a guided trip with North Fork Anglers and we will show you how big the trout can be!
