With seven species of trout in the pristine alpine lakes and streams in Wyoming, the fishing in the Wind River Mountains near Lander is undeniably world class. While many waterways are accessible by car, there are hundreds of rarely visited fishing holes available to those who are undeterred by a hearty day hike. Any trip to Lander is not complete without a stop in Sinks Canyon to see the monstrous fish that swim in current at the Rise of the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River. In addition to the spectacular trout fishing, Wyoming offers tremendous bass, walleye and sockeye salmon angling as well. Give us a call at Wild Iris Mountain Sport, and we can "hook" you up with all the information you need for that fishing trip that spawns a thousand stories.
