Description

This stretch of the river was once described by Teddy Roosevelt as 50 miles of the most scenic land in America. The fisheries on this river are greatly enhanced by spawning runs of rainbow trout and Yellowstone cutthroat out of Buffalo Bill Reservoir. This river is managed as a wild fishery with all reproduction occurring naturally. Fishermen fishing this river would be well advised to be on the lookout for grizzly bears especially in spring and early summer. Creel limit is 3 fish per day with only 1 fish exceeding 20 inches. Buffalo Bill Reservoir also provides good fishing with a creel limit of 4 fish per day and only 1 fish over 20 inches. The north fork arm of Buffalo Bill also has a seasonal fishing closure from April 1 to July 14 (Please read the regulations before fishing!)

Basic Directions

The North Fork of the Shoshone River is located in northwest Wyoming and is a heavy corridor for people visiting Yellowstone Park via the east entrance. The North Fork and East Entrance to Yellowstone is accessed by driving the river corridor on State Highway 14-16-20 (Buffalo Bill Scenic Byway) west out of Cody. The lower reaches of this river are primarily private though there are 3 public fishing areas maintained and well signed by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. The upper reaches are all located on the Shoshone National Forest lands and are easily accessible via automobile. The headwaters of the North Fork and most of it's tributaries are accessible by foot or horseback only. State Highway 14-16-20 is winter maintained and open for vehicular traffic year round.
