Hatches 2012 – Wyoming’s Wind River Mountain Range by Will Mullis

Magazine — By on July 30, 2012 12:32 pm


The Wind River Mountain Range of Wyoming is a fly fishing paradise that rivals any fabled water on earth, yet is relatively devoid of fly fishermen.
“The Winds,” as this area is affectionately nicknamed, encompasses more than 2,800 square miles, has more than 800 lakes teeming brook, brown, rainbow, cutthroat and even golden trout. The reason relatively few fly fishermen venture there is simple: It is an isolated and brutal wilderness that does not give up its bounty without a fight.
Several obstacles make The Winds as much an adventure of endurance and perseverance as a fishing trip. Anglers who consider fishing there should consider carefully these factors. If you want roadside pull-offs, or an effortless stroll through a meadow to reach the water, look elsewhere.
