Located at the western edge of the Bighorn ... moreBasin, the town is surrounded by the Big Horn, Owl Creek, Bridger and Absaroka mountain ranges. At the western edge of the town, a deep canyon is formed by the Shoshone River; a bridge over the water offers the only way into Yellowstone’s Eastern Gate.

Anglers who venture into the national park have many options available to them, including Yellowstone Lake, Trout Lake, the Yellowstone River, Slough Creek, the Lamar River, Soda Butte Creek and Pebble Creek.

Jackson is nestled on a large valley floor, surrounded by the majestic Teton Range to the west and the striated, Gros Ventre Range to the east. Breathtakingly beautiful, much of the ... morevalley has remained undeveloped due to the large land area set aside for the Grand Teton National Park. In the late 1890’s the town acquired its name from a volunteer postal clerk who wanted to make it easier for mail to arrive from the east. She called it Jackson as trappers, furriers and other mountain men referred to the descent into the valley as Jackson’s Hole, a moniker the valley has kept for over a hundred years.

Some think of Jackson as a winter playground for jetsetters, moguls and celebrities. Others describe Jackson as rustic, quaint and unspoiled. In fact, both are right. Accommodations cover the spectrum, from humble campgrounds to full-fledged resorts, while restaurants range from corner cafes to highly regarded, international cuisine. Perhaps best known for its skiing, Jackson offers year round activities including hiking, river rafting, eco-touring, target shooting, horseback riding and of course, great fishing.

Easy to reach, Jackson Hole is home to the largest airport in Wyoming and has become a preferred destination for business conferences and annual meetings. As far back as the early 1980’s, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City has hosted its annual economic policy meeting at the Jackson Lake Lodge, originally chosen to attract then Chairman Paul Volker who was known to be an ardent fly fisherman.
In times past, this town was known as the end of the Cowboy Line, since the Chicago and Northwestern Railway, originally built to go on to Eureka, California or to Coos Bay Oregon, ... morestopped at Lander and never went a bit further. Located on the middle fork of the Popo Agie River, Lander can boast being the first town to hold a “paid” rodeo, a tradition you can still enjoy every 4th of July. Set in the shadow of the majestic Wind River Range, it is surrounded by great fishing lakes, rivers and mountain fed streams. If you follow the Wind River up the canyon it becomes known as the Bighorn River, a favorite for those who are inclined to float.

Rated one of True West Magazine’s top 10 Western towns, many consider Lander to the undiscovered gem of the Rockies. Lodging in Landers is plentiful and diverse with motels, bed-and-breakfasts, inns, guesthouses, campgrounds and cabins in a range of price points. Should you tire of fishing, there are art galleries and art festivals, good shopping and any number of bars, restaurants and coffee houses. For those inclined to stick strictly to fishing, it’s nice to know that the world-record, golden trout, is said to have come from the Wind River.
What Meeteetse lacks in size, with a population of less than 500 people, it makes up for with a colorful history, scenic beauty, flourishing wildlife and a surprisingly full calendar ... moreof events. Its authenticity remains in tact, as original wooden boardwalks, hitching posts and water troughs still run through town. Seated at the junction of the Absaroka Mountains and the Wyoming Bad Lands, the town is close to Thermopolis, the world’s largest hot springs, and driving distance to the renowned Wyoming Dinosaur Center.

Fishing is plentiful with a wide choice of rivers, streams and mountain lakes. Greybull River is especially well known for it’s trophy, cutthroat trout and mountain whitefish while the Wood River Valley boasts great small stream opportunities. One word to the wise – savvy locals recommend applying “bear spray” if you opt to fish in a wilderness area.

During the summer and fall months activities include The Art Festival, a Labor Day Rodeo and excursions to Kirwin, a mining ghost town that has remained largely untouched since the late 1890’s. Warm weather choices include hunting, camping, hiking, wind surfing and boating, while during the winter it’s possible to go ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hunting and sledding. Shooting pictures of wildlife from Pitchfork Road is a year-round, photographer’s dream.
