Wyoming River Basins

Wyoming contains 7 river basins and serves as the headwaters for 4 major river basins in the Western United States. These major river basins are the Missouri-Mississippi, Green-Colorado, Snake-Columbia, and Great Salt Lake. I feel fortunate to live in a state with such great water resources and consequently great fishing.

I log a lot of windshield time and if I plan carefully often I can get in a bit of fishing here and there. Without thinking about it, until after the fact, I realized that I put 854 miles on last week and was fortunate enough to fish in 4 of the 7 basins in Wyoming. Here’s to water and the Cowboy state.

  1. I love the undercurrent of colors in each picture…Yellow, Red, Blue, then Green. Cool.

    • Thanks Andy! I wish i could take credit for doing it on purpose. Although I liked the colors in each I just happened to pick a shot from each basin and that’s how it turned out. Enjoy the holiday weekend!
