Wyoming Wind River Adventure

Wyoming Wind River Adventure

Expand your backcountry and fishing skills in the premier backcountry fishing destination in The West

Have you wanted to take your fly fishing and backpacking skills to the next level, but have wanted to do so on a shorter trip? Well this trip is the perfect fir for you. The rugged Wind River Range of Wyoming has quickly become a favorite trip destination for LFFE. Thousands of lakes, thousands of miles of fishable streams, creeks, and rivers, at least a dozen different species of trout, and one of the largest wilderness areas in the continental United States makes “The Winds” a truly unique trip location. Like the Wind River Expedition, we will head into the backcountry with the assistance of pack animals to lighten our loads. Once established at our base camp, we will hike, fish, and explore in this fly angling paradise. When we out of the backcountry, we will complete our service project before float fishing the nearby Wind/Bighorn River. This trip has it all: big mountains, big views, and big fish. Don’t miss out on this trip of a lifetime to one of the greatest fishing destinations in the world!

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was started in 2010 as a graduate thesis for my Master's Degree in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. The operating premise was simple - by coupling amazing wilderness fly fishing camps for teens with environmental education and service learning we can help inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists. We have been growing our unique list of trips and experiences ever since.

When it comes to choosing a summer program for your teen the options are endless. For the teen who loves to fish, be outside, and has a strong sense of adventure we have made the choice easy. We are the leader in teen fly fishing adventures and are dedicated to providing the best backcountry fly fishing experience with opportunities for teens to engage in leadership training, community service, and backcountry camping.
