You have a fairly large assortment of choices for fly shops in the Ft Smith area around the Big Horn. I have found that for my needs the Bighorn Trout Shop is the best. They have a knowledgeable staff, a great selection and some great advice for those fishing the area. They have a good selection of guides, the fly... More

Been staying at the BHTS for a few days most every year for the last 20 years. Best accommodations in Fort Smith. Very good food, nice facility, fully equipped fly shop with every imaginable item a fly fisher might need, comfortable rooms and right on the main street through Ft Smith so you can't miss it. Large restaurant style dining... More

The best part of our visit was the friendliness os the staff. We hired a guide and floated the top thirteen miles of the... More

Have been here two times in 2010 and 2011 , both in July. Excellent rooms that are comfortable and easy access to trout fishing. Food was home made and very good. Fishing guides are the best you will find in the area. Caught several fish each day. They know the river like the back of their hand. You won't be... More

We can't say enough about the Bighorn Trout Shop. The care and attention to detail of this fishing outpost are beyond expectations. The rooms are comfortably furnished and quite large. The food here is exceptional, don't make the same mistake we made in bringing our own. I was just told by the manager the average guide has been with them... More

Stayed at the bighorn trout shop after staying a night at the shop next door. The rooms were clean and the shop staff was very helpful. I will plan my entire trip with the trout shop this coming season. The river fished very well also.

Checked in on a Friday night with no problems, and were given a high vaulted ceiling room with two double beds, a bathroom and a mini fridge. We spent Saturday fishing the river with our guide, Ike, and while it wasnt overly productive in terms of fish, we had a great day. Dinner that night was at the lodge, and... More

Just recently I went on my first guided fly fishing trip on the Bighorn River. The Bighorn Trout Shop was recommended to me by a friend. My trip was awesome, fishing was excellent, service was well above average, and their food was great. Their shop was very impressive. They had everything there, from all different brands of rods, reels, clothing(summer... More
