Fishing & Wildlife
The fly-fishing at the Lazy L&B Ranch and the Upper Wind River area is every bit as good as the famous waters of the nearby Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
The clear waters that flow are home to Rainbow, Cutthroat and Brown Trout and in this part of Wyoming, the fish are still eager to take a fly. The Wind River in Dubois is a “Blue Ribbon Stream” which in Wyoming is a stream with greater than 600 pounds of trout/mile. Blue ribbon waters represent the top 3-5% of rivers or streams in the state for trout production.
The East Fork of the Wind River is a stream, which meanders through the ranch, with excellent nymph, dry and streamer fishing. Just down the road is Bear Creek, lined with cottonwood trees and bordered by hay pastures. It is a favorite of small stream aficionados. The creek is full of small cutthroats and has great dry fly action.
The West (Wiggins) Fork of the Wind River has a breathtaking canyon view and is truly one of Wyoming’s best-kept secrets. The river spreads out into numerous threads that allow for easy wading and multiple anglers. The Wiggins Fork has lots of cutthroats, browns and even a brookie here and there.

“DUBOIS, WYOMING GRABS HONORS AS A TOP TEN WESTERN TOWN”, True West Magazine
Back in the 1890’s outlaw Butch Cassidy spent a lot of time in the Rocky Mountain town of Dubois, Wyoming. Visitors today will find that it hasn’t changed much. Dubois -population 962- still features the EA Ranch, where Butch sometimes worked as a ranch hand. It’s one of several historic dude ranches in the area. The surrounding areas are still teeming with wildlife, including bighorn sheep and elk. Anglers fish for trout in the local rivers and streams where Kit Carson and Jim Bridger trapped beaver.
“Dubois is one of those places that’s escaped the ravages of time” say True West Executive Editor Bob Boze Bell. “That’s no accident. It takes a lot of determination by local folks to keep their heritage intact. They are most deserving of recognition”.
You will also enjoy visiting the National Big Horn Sheep Museum or a hiking/driving tour to see the petroglyphs.

Friday Night Authentic Local Rodeo
This is the real deal - not a big commercialized rodeo. It's great fun to watch the local cowboy and cowgirls (and our daughter Piper) barrel race, rope, calf tie, bronc ride, and bull ride. The little, little kids do mutton busting and calf riding. Visiting kids from the stands are invited to join in the fun with the ribbon scramble( it' s kids versus about 6 calves with ribbons on their tails and the kids have to try and pull off ). Another event is for any adult guests that would like to join in and as a team of three, try to chase down a steer and take the ribbon off the tail and take the rope off it head. There is a bonfire, beer, hamburgers, tee shirts, and gifts. One night a summer it is " Tough enough to wear pink" in honor of women's breast cancer. Everyone wears pink and there are auction items for sale during the events.
