Would like to put together a backpacking trip next summer on the reservation side. Any recommendations for areas that consistently produce big cutties? Maybe not specific lakes but at least general areas for producing big fish.

Really, almost any spot you go can produce the fish that you are after. One thing I would look at is an area with a lot of lakes in proximity. I think people often get honed in on one lake that is ok fishing and the lake on the other side of the mountain is fishing hotter than the sun.

The key is to be mobile with a lot of lakes at your disposal.

Behind Pinedale, the green river lakes area, up from Lander, or the south pass area will all be gravy.

Bug spray is a must in the area. I would also advise to bring bear spray. Not many grizz in the area other than the Green River lakes; but there are a lot of stories of Black bears camp robbing during the summer months.

Keep a clean camp and if you pack it in, then pack it out.
