Stream Fishing - WYOMING TERRITORIAL PRISON

About:

Gone Fishin’! The Big Laramie River runs through the Historic Site. Anglers report catching wild brown trout up to 20 inches long. The area has also recently been stocked with catchable rainbows. The best fishing is in late fall, right after runoff. This section of the river is slow and meandering, with deep runs and undercut banks.
