Winter Activity Tour

Get the Best of Winter

Experience amazing outdoor recreational activities including snow sports and ice fishing during the winter months in Sweetwater County, Wyoming. This tour will highlight all the best spots in Sweetwater County to enjoy winter activities.

Ice Fishing at Lake Flaming Gorge

For roughly four months a year, Lake Flaming Gorge is covered with ice. Beginning in mid-December, Flaming Gorge can be very good for catching burbot and rainbows. Anglers also target lake trout through the ice. Smaller lake trout range freely and are often caught by anglers fishing for rainbows. In general, smaller fish are caught on the north end of the reservoir and the fish become larger as the ice progresses southward.  It is becoming very popular to fish through the ice at nighttime. In the dead of winter, in the middle of the night, Lake Flaming Gorge can look like many small towns lit up by lanterns and headlamps. Whichever way you like to fish come to Lake Flaming Gorge and enjoy world-class ice fishing
