Some places are so incredibly beautiful that finding the right words to encompass a 360 angle view to the reader within a description never seems to do it justice. As they say a picture paints a 1000 words. Nature’s gift to anglers is defined within the Wigwam River. Located deep in the backcountry this catch & release river boasts some pretty amazing qualities.
Very cold, gin clear mountain water shoots, stumbles and stalls over a river bed covered with colorful (and slippery) rocks varying from deep purple to vibrant dessert red. This river is highly regulated, well respected and home to some very healthy cutthroat, cutt-bows and migratory bull trout. Most who have had the opportunity to visit this fishery know that the hatches can be very productive; giving anglers an amazing dry fly fishing experience in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. If you are looking for a little zen; then take a guided day on the Wigwam (and or / Tribs) for your chance to swing a few streamers to massive bulltrout and tempt your dry fly to rising trout.
A guided day to the Wigwam drainage is a true backcountry fishing adventure! Walk and wade only; a guided day will find you hiking the river bed fishing big deep pools, pockets, dancing riffles, log jams, undercut banks and big chunky boulders. All the fantastic features that make a walk and wade stream so much fun to fish; including the chance to hook into some spectacular fish.
