NOTES: Wyoming Game and Fish Department lost the lease for access to Pick Bridge put in and will be creating a new access across the river on land they own. Camp sites can be scarce because of the private land ownership, so find a spot early. The private and public lands are marked (inconsistently) with blue and red squares, so you will know when you are on public lands. The desert flats are slow and can be windy. Afternoon thunderstorms are always possible.
