My crew and I put in for 83. We put in for does as well. So hopefully we draw something. We have enough points for last year but everybody and there grandma seen that this unit was easier to draw last year. It should be fun if we draw. It is our first trip to Wyoming. I'm working on a new Tikka T3 25-06 that should be fun. We are heading over the last few days of September and the first week of October. We will be brigning fishing poles for when we fill our tags. Is there good fishing near Thermopolis and is it all fly fishing? Man I hope we draw! I'm tired of waiting to hunt antelope in Oregon.
I heard Wind River Canyon was was pretty good for rainbows this spring. The browns might be good closer to that time of year. I am pretty sure you can drown worms there if you want. Might have to check the regs. to be sure. The only thing I saw was some stuff about sauger and walleye identification, but no tackle restrictions. There are pull outs alongside the road all through the canyon and north of town. Boysen Reservoir is not too far south, that can be good sometimes, but a boat helps. There are some misc. little bass ponds and stuff to look into pretty close, too. South Pass and the Big Horns have lakes and streams and are like 1.5 hours or something like that from Thermop. So there is stuff around, just depends on what you want to do. Kindof a neat centrally located town. Some people go to Thermop. just for the fishing and then go play in the hot springs. The only thing to watch out for is the tunnel trolls. You have to hold your feet off the floor and hold your breath as you go through the tunnels or the trolls will make sure you don't catch anything. I am not sure if they make an exception for the driver or not. Good luck in the draw.

Again, thanks for the info! We put in for troll tags as well. Predator Control!

Trolls might not be a nice name for these little guys. From the story, I don't think I am going to hang out with them.

That was a cool story. For some reason I have always thought little people were cool. Wee Man is awesome!
I fished the big horn river right out of town and did well on trout last year. I will defiantly bring my fly rod if I draw 83 this fall.
I plan to come out and fish even if I only draw doe antelope tags. I did explore the wind river side and probably buy a permit to fish there. Caught some monster bows on streamers under an indicator. Any idea on horn growth on the antelope in the Thermopolis area?
