Overview of Location
The Greybull River and Wood River join outside of Meeteetse, Wyoming and runs to the southern parts of Park and Big Horn Counties. A tributary of the Bighorn River, it’s about 90 miles long and a top trout stream.
Type of waterway
This river is more difficult to access than most, but makes it a less crowded spot for fishing. The upper reaches of the Greybull are only accessed by foot or by horseback. But on both the Greybull and Wood Rivers you’ll discover some great wading.
Even though fishing is allowed the year round, the best seasons are from the end of June through to September.
Most common fish species
On the Greybull, you can hook some mountain whitefish, Yellowstone cutthroat and some brown trout. On the Wood, catch some Yellowstone cutthroat, mountain whitefish and brook trout.
Directions for access
You can access both the Greybull and Wood by driving from Meeteetse west on State Highway 290. In ten miles you’ll come to Forest Road 200, which will take you parallel along the Wood River to the upper reaches. If you want to go instead to the Greybull, continue on State Highway 290 west until it turns into a dirt road (Forest Road 208). Continue driving and when you reach Jack Creek Trailhead, you’re there.
