Fly Fish North Fork Crazy Woman Creek

Buffalo, Wyoming


Added by CampCo

Crazy Woman Canyon is usually less frequented, as tourists head to the western part of the state, completely unaware of the beauty and lore found along this route. The drive itself may be the reason to visit this area, but don't forget to pack the fishing gear. 

The North Fork Crazy Woman Creek carves its way south and east through the limestone face of the southern Bighorns. In its lower canyon, the stream sinks and returns to the surface several times. Above these sinks, anglers can catch the Bighorn trout trifecta: wild rainbow, brown, and brook trout.

This creek also slithers its way through the TA Guest Ranch, an authentic ranch in the heart of Buffalo, Wyoming. Among other historical accolades, it is the site of the final battle in the Johnson County Cattle War - where history was made. Their guests can enjoy a multitude of activities including horseback riding, fishing in a rainbow trout-stocked lake, hiking, horseshoes, mountain biking, wagon rides, or reading from the ranch library.
