Wind River Lake lies in the Wind River Mountains of northwest Wyoming very near Togwotee Pass. Statewide creel limits apply and all legal methods of fishing are allowed. Internal combustion motors are prohibited on Wind River Lake. Check Wyoming Game and Fish fishing regulations for specifics before fishing.
Plan to bring mosquito spray if spending time outside in the early part of the summer.
This lake has a handicap accessible fishing dock installed through a cooperative effort with the Forest and Wyoming Game and Fish.
Fishing can be fair to good but overall size is generally small due to high elevation and low productivity. This lake offers spectacular views of sheer rock faces and produces many photographic moments with its reflections. Fishing is allowed year round but the area receives substantial amounts of snow in the winter. Ice out on the lake is usually around the end of May.
This high elevation area receives significant snow pack. Many trails and lakes are still snow or ice covered far into June.

Facilities: Wind River Lake provides camping and a fishing dock on site.

Best Time To Visit: Wind River Lake is open year round.

Fees: No fees are charged.

Accessibility: This lake is handicap accessible.
