Fly fishing for all species of Trout in Wyoming can be one the most sought after, exciting, experiences to pursue, as well attempting to achieve your Cutt Slam.  Mature trout species are wary, extremely cagey, and can make for a very challenging to catch on a dry fly.  The mountains and plains of Western Wyoming are famous for producing native trout specie and are home to one of the greatest populations in the country.  There are several factors specific to our area which allow for our trout to grow and maintain a healthy population.   These factors include lots of naturally formed mountain lakes and streams that provide fabulous fishery habitats.  The quality waters make for great feeding ground that benefit our thriving population of trout, giving them the nutrition necessary to survive the harsh Wyoming winters.   Along with these factors, remote Wyoming lakes and streams have kept the fishing pressure low in many areas, which allow our Trout to have an even better chance at reaching their genetic potential at maturity.

Our many pack in camps are accessible from our trail head facilities located around Western Wyoming. These locations allow us easy access and the ability to fish a few of the best drainage’s in the State for Trout.  These areas routinely produce fish ranging from 16” to well over 24” trout every year. Our season typically runs from Mid-June thru Mid-August, offering us a wide range of fly fishing opportunities.

This trip takes place in the Wyoming high country, with elevations up to 7,000 feet and over 10,000 feet in some areas, such as the Continental Divide.  You will be viewing high alpine bowls, boulder fields, rocky slides, and timber areas often higher than 9,000 feet.

Your mornings will begin at 8:00 am, at which time your guides will already be catching, feeding, and saddling horses if needed for that day.  We will all meet in the dining tent for a hearty breakfast; pack your lunch and discuss the plans for the day.

After breakfast, you and your guide will ride from camp and head up the trails a horseback for a full day of fly fishing, trail riding, wildlife viewing, hiking or maybe you elected to stay around camp for a relaxing day by the campfire.

If wildlife viewing, once you reach a vantage point, we will spend some time glassing and locating wildlife with binoculars while eating your lunch and catching an afternoon nap. Our time and efforts are focused on areas where we have historically found and recently located elk, deer, moose, sheep and black bear.  Once we spot our native game animals, we will plan our stalk carefully and hike to a vantage point to where you may take photos.

Your evenings will end at sunset, at which time your guides will already have you back in camp and the cook with have your meal prepared.  We will all meet in the dining tent for a hearty supper and tell stories of the day.

In summary, the rugged and steep terrain is challenging whether riding or hiking the trails to camp or out to view the countryside.  This can be a physically demanding trip or one that is unbelievably relaxing, depending on what you want to achieve out of it.  This is without a doubt the trip of a lifetime for that outdoorsman who is looking for a true Wyoming back country adventure.

Day 1
Our pack trip begins from Brooks Lake Trail-head which sets at an elevation of 9,050 and is surrounded by unbelievable Pinnacle Butts.  The Continental Divide towers over us to the west while we ride along the edge of Brooks Lake.  After rounding the North end of Brooks Lake, we pass through Brooks Lake Creek and Meadows as we ride North towards Rainbow Lake, Upper Brooks Lake and Cub Pass.  We will then crossover the Continental Divide at Bear Cub Pass with an elevation of 9,200′ and enter the Bridger-Teton Wilderness. After riding over the pass, we will work our way down the trail to Cub Creek and Trail Creek.  We will take a fork in the trail and ride down to the South Buffalo Fork River while skirting Cub Creek Canyon.  After reaching Pendergraft Meadows we will unpack to set our second nights camp alongside the South Buffalo Fork River below Terrace Mountain, Smokehouse Mountain and Simpson Peak.

Day 2
When we are finished with our morning campfire coffee, we will take a short ride up the South Buffalo Fork to view South Fork Falls and take hike along the Canyons edge for photo opportunities.  While other group members may stay behind in camp for a day of relaxation by the river, fly-fishing, hiking or a short ride up the mountain to view wildlife.

Day 3
After a hardy breakfast we will pack-up camp for a ride up the South Buffalo Fork trail to the base of Pendergraft Peak.  We will then take the Lake Creek trail up to view the Lake Fork Falls and finally on to Ferry Lake and Crater Lake where we will set camp at 10,000′ elevation. The evenings in camp always greet us with an old-fashioned Dutch-oven meals and campfire stories.

Day 4
Once you’ve had your morning biscuit, we will take a day ride up to the Continental Divide at Marston Pass to view the headwaters of the Yellowstone, Younts Peak, Thorofare Mountain, Buffalo Plateau and much more. The views from this high country are nothing short of breathtaking and will certainly last a lifetime.

Day 5
We will put our loads together, step a horseback and head back down country to the South Buffalo Fork to our camp in a meadow just below the South facing slope of Pendergraft Peak. This is a great stretch of water to catch Brook Trout or simply take a short hike up the river to try and catch sight of a Moose.

Day 6
When everyone is up and around, we will take a half-day ride up to Rainbow Lake, Bertha Lake, Golden Lake and Mackinaw Lake which are all incredible clear and beautiful. The more avid fly-fisherman will more than likely say back to take advantage of the opportunities the South Buffalo offers in a great fishery.

Day 7
After another hardy wilderness breakfast, we will lash our loads down on the mules and take the Angle Lakes trail on down to the Continental Divide trail.  This trail will take us on to Trail Creek and then to Cub Creek where will climb up to Bear Cub Pass.  We will then cross back over the Continental Divide and exit the Bridger-Teton Wilderness boundary.  After riding over the pass, we will work our way back by Upper Brooks Lake and on down Brooks Lake Creek through the meadows.  Rounding back by the North end of Brooks Lake we can again view the Continental Divide towering over us to the west while we ride along the edge of Brooks Lake back to the trail-head.
