If You Go
Sage grouse season in the Big Desert country begins on the September Saturday closest to the 15th each year. The season was shortened in 1996 in response to lower populations. Check the current regulation brochure each year for changes.
Brown trout fishing rules are the same as for other trout species. Anglers should be aware that the Taylor "Bear Tracks" Williams special section of the Little Wood River--running 2 ½ miles upstream from milepost 190 on Highway 93--is catch-and-release. This section of river, accessible from the highway, often contains the biggest browns.
