East Fork (Wind River) Upper Segment


Upper Wind



From the confluence with Lake Creek downstream to the confluence with Beaver Creek.
From Dubois, go about 10 miles east on Highway 26/287. Look for a sign on your left next to a good gravel road with separate signs indicating the East Fork Road and the WGFD Spence/Moriarity and Inberg/Roy WHMA. Turn left here and go about 6 1/2 miles to the bridge over the Wiggins Fork (enters from the north). Continue on the East Fork Road about another 3.5 miles, crossing over Bear Creek along the way. Go approximately 7 miles past Bear Creek to where a road forks near the Bitterroot Ranch. Take the left fork (USFSS Road 277) that heads up hill and away from the stream. In about 3 1/2 miles the road dead ends near the mouth of Lake Creek. The instream flow segment extends from Lake Creek downstream about 5 miles to the confluence with Beaver Creek. Be aware that this is grizzly bear country and you would be wise to carry bear spray as you fish this segment.
