Who Comes To the Bighorn River Lodge?

Written by

New inquiries often ask about the suitability of The Bighorn River Lodge experience and how it relates to their specific needs. Here’s some of the questions we are asked.

  • Is it suitable for families?
  • What if I’ve never fly fished?
  • Can I bring a non-fisherman specifically my wife?
  • Can you accommodate Corporate Groups?

 

A Fly Fishing Vacation Is Perfect For Families Of All Kinds

familiesFamilies made up of all combinations, father/son, father/daughter, grandfathers, parents and children, in-laws and so on. The Bighorn River Lodge is the perfect venue to celebrate a special birthday, graduation and other life milestones. The Bighorn River and fishing experience are enjoyed by all ages.  We are especially pleased to see that next generation of fly fisherman learning to fish and tune into nature and the magic of the legendary Bighorn River. Our guides have a wealth of knowledge about the Bighorn River, the wildlife, and entomology of the bug life and they love passing that information along to everyone who shows an interest.
 

Don't Be Afraid Of Fly Fishing If You Are Just A Beginner

beginnersThe river lends itself to all skill levels from never fly fished ever to expert angler. At least half of our visitors each year have either never fly fished or have done it just a few times. Our guides are experts at working with and teaching the beginner fly fisherman.  And we offer a full array of rental gear to make it very easy for everyone. You must start somewhere, and The Bighorn River hosts over 6,000 Brown and Rainbow Trout per mile so the catching can be excellent.

Fly Fishing Is an Ideal Experience For a Group Of Friends

Each year we see groups of “old friends” return to the Bighorn River Lodge to fish the Bighorn River together, and to catch up on their friendships.  Some have been returning for years usually at the same time of year. The groups range from 2 anglers to 16, our maximum, and they never seem to tire of those big Brown and Rainbow Trout.

Wives Don't Have To Be Bighorn Anglers

Wives are welcome! We have a special non-sporting rate for wives. They can just relax at the Lodge or head to Sheridan, Wyoming for the day at one of the museums.  We suggest the Brinton Museum which houses 19th, 20th and 21st century Western and American Indian art in a beautiful setting. The Bighorn Battlefield is another must see venue if you are interested in the history of the West.

Corporate Groups Find The Bighorn River Lodge Especially Rewarding

The Bighorn River Lodge is a huge favorite of many small Corporate Groups who come every year to reward their sales reps for their hard work, and clients for their patronage. We can accommodate up to 16 and are able provide a small conference room for their use.

Single Anglers Are Always Welcome On The Bighorn River

We often have single anglers come to the Bighorn River Lodge. We do charge a single supplement fee but there’s nothing like having a boat and a guide all to yourself. It’s one of the ultimate experiences in fly fishing. Sometimes it hard to contain yourself.
