After the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area was established in 1966, the construction of the Yellowtail Dam was completed by the Bureau of Reclamation. Afterbay Lake, below the Dam, is a great spot if you like to view wildlife and fish for trout. Tours of Yellowtail Dam are available through the summer by contacting the Visitor's Center in Lovell or Fort Smith.
