Guided Fly Fishing: Upper Big Wind River @ Crowheart

Blue Ribbon Fishing & Solitude

This is one of the remaining few freestone streams in the west where you have a legitimate shot at some unbelievably large trout and will not see another boat!

The upper Big Wind is in the heart of the Wind River Indian Reservation. We offer 6 separate sections of the Upper Wind varying in length from approximately 6 miles to as long as 14 miles. The trips on the Upper Big Wind are like something out of an old western movie...incredible scenery, eagles, elk, whitetail and mule deer, beaver, waterfowl, all the while passing by ranches, homesteads, and floating through cottonwood forests.

Don’t forget to look up at the magnificent Wind River Range, the longest continuous chain of the Rockies in the lower 48, as you float and cast into one beautiful pool after another. Streamers tend to find the largest fish, though during hopper/terrestrial season the big guys come to the surface as well.


Full Day, Big Wind River at Crowheart: $695.00 (Lunch Included)

** Full Day Trips Only (no half day trips on the Big Wind River).
