Fly Fishing Big Creek Wyoming

Big Creek is a tributary of the North Platte River.

When Big Creek flows from the mountains, its water
consist mostly of pocket water with plenty of fast water
runs, plunges and riffles. In the lower elevations of the
valley, it slows down to a more moderate speed, widens
out and becomes more of a meadow stream. It flows
through the North Platte River upper valley.

From about the middle of June, to the end of June, the
runoff subsides and the fishing comes into its prime. Its
trout average about twelve inches but they tend to run
slightly smaller in the meadows. The action is usually
very good with anglers usually catching some very good
numbers.
