Wind River Canyon

Wind River Canyon

Four miles south of Thermopolis, entering the canyon, is possibly the prettiest drive in Wyoming. Prime geologic territory, from the earth’s core to outer crust and offers great recreation. Guided fishing, float, and white water trips are available from area outfitters.

Deeper into the Canyon you will experience the full thrill of its majestic views. The canyon varies in age (Geological) from about 300 million near the Wedding of the Waters, to 2.8 billion down by the tunnels. The river in the canyon is on the Wind River Indian Reservation. You will need additional licenses to fish.

These fishing licenses can be purchased at Wind River Canyon Whitewater, Canyon Sporting Goods and Thermopolis Hardware.
