Exploring Wyoming's backcountry wilderness for the perfect secluded trout water is a summertime expedition. When snow begins to swirl around mountain peaks and aspens and cottonwoods turn honey yellow, the high mountain trout are already preparing for the long winter ahead. Fall is the time for fishing Wyoming's lower valley waters.
The Bighorn River that flows between the Bighorn and Absaroka-Beartooth mountain ranges has attained world renown status for its trout fishing at the Wedding-of-the-Waters near Thermopolis, Wyoming. Not to be overlooked are smaller rivers like the lower Shoshone that flows through Cody, Wyoming after exiting Buffalo Bill dam west of town. Brown trout are preparing for their spawning run, decked out in beautiful fall colors that keenly match the turning leaves of the cottonwoods lining the river.

If fall hunting season isn't consuming all your outdoor effort then I recommend you charge to your nearest water and test your mettle against fall trout, which is an angling experience too often overlooked.
