ENJOY THE OUTDOORS
AND ADVENTURE IN  DUBOIS

Embark on an authentic Wyoming winter adventure at The Longhorn Ranch. Explore snowy trails on snowmobiles, ice fish, snowshoe, or experience the thrill of skiing. Uncover the unexpected delights of our winter wonderland.

ICE FISHING

GONE FISHIN'

Thanks to high elevations and cold winters, many of the Wind River Valley lakes freeze over completely (with ice about 17 inches thick or more), and make for perfect ice fishing. Torrey Lake, Trail Lake, and Ring Lake are easily accessible, and there are plenty of other options as well if you are willing to snowmobile to them. Some other popular ice fishing destinations in the area include Half Moon, Boulder, and Fremont lakes.

Expect to find a wide range of trout coming up from below the ice. Brook, brown, lake, and rainbow trout are the most common, though ice fishers on Trail Lake can also catch decent size mountain whitefish. Other spots have plentiful burbot and ling.

NATURE EDUCATION

The citizens of Dubois have always felt great pride for the proximity, accessibility, and successful endurance of “our” herd, the Whiskey Mountain herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department, the town of Dubois, the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Wild Sheep Foundation and many other entities and individuals contributed dollars, resources, talents, and guidance to construct the National Bighorn Sheep Center. The Center was opened to the public on July 3, 1993.
