Tongue River Fishing

If you enjoy trout fishing, you’ll want to explore the 265-mile-long expanse of the upper portion of the Tongue River. Located in Bighorn National Forest, these waters are known as prime trout fishing hotspots. Note that the Tongue River is divided into a North and South side, both of which provide excellent fishing opportunities. You’ll find both fast pockets of water and gentle sections lined with greenery. To get to the North Tongue River, you’ll have to do a bit of hiking. The best part is that while the Tongue River is an excellent fishery, it’s often overlooked by most fishermen. This gives you the chance to enjoy the solitude of nature while experiencing some of the best trout fishing Wyoming has to offer. While its open all year for fishing, the ice usually doesn’t clear until around mid-April.
