  • The story of the North Fork Shoshone River in spawning season

    High in the North Absaroka Wilderness of the Shoshone National Forest, a river begins. Primarily fed by snowmelt, enhanced by springs and sometimes rainfall, the North Fork Shoshone River winds its way downstream through about 50 miles of Absaroka volcanics until it joins the South Fork Shoshone River at Buffalo Bill Reservoir. 

    While many are familiar with the North Fork Shoshone River corridor as a great place to spot a grizzly, view a band of bighorn sheep, or hike along one of the dozens of trails, for a few, the primary draw is the unique fishery that exists. The river has a rich history and many stories to tell; this one is about the North Fork Shoshone fishery.
