How to get there - From the small town of Smoot in far western Wyoming, go south on highway 89 about 7 and a half miles to the Salt River Pass. Turn off (east) on the Smiths Fork Road (Forest Service road 10072). Go a little over 7 miles on this well-maintained gravel road. As you drive along the road next to the Smiths Fork River, watch closely on the right for a small canyon entering the Smiths Fork from the south. You'll have to park along the main road and walk down to the stream. Cross the Smiths Fork and pick your way along Lander Creek looking for openings in the extensive deadfall to cast your line. This is predominantly a spawning and rearing stream for native cutts so you won't find many fish over 6 inches long here.
