Some of the finest and most accessible fishing in north central Wyoming is on the Bighorn River.


Fishing can be outstanding on the Bighorn. Over a dozen species of game fish live and thrive in the river, making it one of the most enjoyable and satisfying fishing experiences you will have. Large rainbow and brown trout are taken in the stretch of river north and south of Thermopolis. As one progresses northward (down river), walleye, sauger, ling, and channel catfish are more common.


Canoeing, floating, bow hunting for carp, waterfowl hunting, wildlife watching, picnicking and camping are some of the other activities available along the Bighorn.

Catch limits and sizes vary
from site to site. Check your fishing regulations first.
