Wind River Canyon Lodge October Cast & Blast Dates 2022

August 19, 2022

What: Here’s your chance to fly fish one of the most iconic and in-demand tailwater trout fisheries in the Lower 48, as well as pair the trip with a day of upland hunting. Our friends at Wind River Canyon Lodge are offering a cast and blast trip (2 days of fishing + 1 day of upland bird hunting) in October – a prime time to catch some seriously large brown trout using streamers. Darren and his team are the only commercial operation allowed to guide the Wind River Canyon on the Reservation, which means that when you fish with them, you have an entire river within the Canyon sections. Since their focus has always been on conservation and resource protection, they fish the Wind River Canyon in two stretches, dividing the trips into upper and lower floats, and placing a daily limit of one guided boat per section / per day. This is an amazing tailwater fishery that offers some of the best wild brown trout fishing in the United States complemented by impressive numbers of hot and heavy rainbows.
