Fishing near Big Sandy Lodge June through mid-September
From Big Sandy Lodge, the Fremont, Lowline, Highline, and Big Sandy trails will take you to nearly 40 different lakes with 6 different species of trout. Most lakes are within 8 miles of the lodge. Some of the more remote lakes are within 15 miles. How early can you get in? That depends, of course, on the weather each year and when the snow melts. Some years we can get up to the lodge in mid to late May and the snow doesn't fly again until mid-October. We can't predict the exact date until we get into the spring. Access by horse begins in June, before then we hike in. Great fishing is available in the nearby lake just a few steps from your cabin door! We do not sell fishing licenses at the lodge, so please be sure to get your licenses in town before you come up. For more information about fishing please visit WY Game & Fish or to purchase a fishing license click here.

Horseback is a terrific way to explore the Wind River Range, and especially for those whose time doesn't permit hiking the magnificent mountains. Our guides will lead you to the destination of your choice. You will return to the lodge in time to have the evening to yourself for fishing or relaxing. See our Rates page for specific prices.

Plan on staying in a cabin as well? Consider the Mitchell Package to get a discount on both services. Roam the wilderness. Commune with nature. Observe other creatures along with yourself.
