What to Expect
Nature is in full control along these banks where public access is plentiful but getting to a spot can provide its own adventure. Fishing skills and bait selection will be tested where utilizing flies familiar to the natural surroundings of these large trout can be an added bonus, but once one of the big ones strike and tug on the line - it makes every minute of the trip worth completing all over again, and many do.
Being a tailwater fishery indicates the end results of a trip may be plentiful anytime of the year but accessing ‘The Miracle Mile’, one needs to take into account current conditions and forecast. Given the location and surrounding mountains, weather can change quickly along the river, so being prepared for just about anything is important.
People come from all over to test their angling skills against the trout here mainly because of their size and the surrounding scene. However, the variety of different trout available to be caught also offers an experience unlike any other on the planet. Both Rainbow and Brown trout are common types found in these waters but opportunities also exist to snag Cutthroat, Carp, Walleye, and other fish.
Add in the beautiful surroundings with a chance to bag monster fish and ‘The Miracle Mile’ quickly escalates into a can’t miss opportunity. One of the best spots in all the world for outdoor adventure and anglers of any skill level, good times - like the fish - are plentiful while trying these majestic waters. Whether from the banks or immersed among them, the thrill of wetting a line here in Wyoming is a unique experience unlike any other.
