Fishing & Wildlife
Wyoming's Wind River Mountain Range is famous for its pristine alpine lakes and streams teeming with wild trout, an adventure paradise for fly fishermen. Cutthroat trout are the only native fish in the Wind River Range. However, thanks to the old-timers who horse packed young fingerlings in milk cans to secluded lakes, today you can also enjoy fishing for golden trout, rainbow trout, mackinaw, brook trout and beautifully colored hybrid trout.
Our part of the Wind Rivers is so vast that most avid fishermen sign up for one of our 5 - 7 day pack trips to reach some of the 30 lakes and many streams available from the Diamond 4 Ranch. Choose a Guided Pack Trip (complete with camp, horses, guide and cook); or hire us to pack your group in on a Spot Pack Trip (you bring your own camp gear and meals; we haul everything in and out for you.) Our Mountain Ranch Vacation option does allow for fun fishing from the cabins, but larger fish will be found deeper into the mountains on a pack trip.
