The South Fork of the Shoshone River

The smaller of the two shoshone forks, it is known more as a brown trout fishery with rainbow, brook and cutthroat trout available to the angler.  The charactor of the South Fork is best realized on foot; the lower 30 miles from Buffalo Bill Reservoir to the boundary of the Shoshone National Forest has limited access due to private property lining its banks.

Head upstream 30 miles and the angler will be rewarded with a beautiful mountain stream, perfect for the dry fly fisher.  Walk and wading is fairly easy following the trail to the canyon and ending at Bliss Creek Meadows.  July through mid October provide late afternoon and evening hatches of caddis, drakes, and PMD's.  Occasionally sending that wooly bugger to a deep pool will elicit a ferocious strike from a lurking brown trout. 

Remember this is bear country, so our guides always carry bear repellant.  Diligence and patience here will reward the angler greatly.
