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 about 6 miles on this well-maintained gravel road. As you go along, notice the small stream on your right (south) grow larger to the point where it joins the much larger Smiths Fork and turns sharply east. Start from near the confluence with the Smiths Fork and work your way back upstream, making sure to work each of the beaver ponds you encounter. This stream is used primarily by Bonneville cutts for spawning and rearing so the majority of fish are pretty small. Regardless, larger fish may be found here throughout the year.
