Region/Terrain Where You Fish
We are located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in central Wyoming, at about 6,000 feet of elevation. We are based on the world-renowned North Platte River where we offer walk/wade and float trips on the Grey Reef, Miracle Mile, and Fremont Canyon stretches as well as Float Trips on the Big Horn River outside of Thermopolis Wyoming. These are very health fishery due to our low water temperatures and tailwater environment. Casper has an international airport with regular flights from Denver, Salt Lake City, and Las Vegas. Casper is also located conveniently right off I-25 for easy access by vehicle.
Typical Weather by Season
The average rainfall for this area is 12.5 inches per year, and temperatures vary with seasons but we are known for mild springs and falls with warmer bright, sunny summer days. We advise that all clients bring appropriate clothing and sunglasses; we can provide nearly everything else. Water temperatures range from 33-65 degrees depending on the season.
Species You Fish for by Season
Wild rainbows, cutthroats, and browns averaging 17 to 22 inches will keep anglers smiling. The combination of size and numbers of fish make it one of the top destinations in the continental United States. Not to mention, there is always the chance to catch a fish of a lifetime weighing in at more than 10 pounds.
We experience a wide range of hatches throughout the year. Midges (year -round), BWOs (April, May, June, September, October), PMDs (June, July, August, September), and yellow sallies (July, August). The North Platte is known for its nymph fishing, streamer fishing, and some dry-fly fishing.
