Fishing - MEDICINE LODGE

About:

More than 5 miles of Medicine Lodge Creek is accessible from the park with several other walk-in areas within a short drive. Medicine Lodge Creek is abundant with brown trout and is accessible year-round. Other native species of trout can be located nearby the park in Paintrock Creek and the Paintrock Lakes.

Stream fishing is outstanding in Medicine Lodge Creek for brown trout. Both fly and traditional spin tackle does well, especially in early summer and late fall. Wyoming Game and Fish Department regulations do apply.
