With some of the region’s healthiest and best maintained waters, our fish are thriving. Take a look at what you’ll be reeling in during your next visit.

Rainbow Trout


Luckily for you, this is the most common catch in Casper and can be found in the North Platte River, Alcova and Pathfinder. These fish typically range from 16-18” and are 1.5-3 lbs. According to the Wyoming Game and Fish, the state record for largest rainbow catch was set in 1969 with a catch of 35.5” and a whopping 23 lbs.

Brown Trout


What made us famous. You’ll find our monster browns in the North Platte River, especially along the Miracle Mile stretch, and be sure to make a trip in the fall when they’re at their most fertile. Average size in our waters is 16-18”, weighing 1.5-3 lbs. The Wyoming Game and Fish records a 25 lbs., 34” inch behemoth brown caught in 1982.

Cutthroat Trout


A somewhat elusive catch, keep an eye out for cutthroats in the Snake River below Grey Reef. They average in size from 16-18” and usually weigh around 1.5-3 lbs. The Wyoming Game and Fish record for a cutthroat catch is 32” and 15 lbs., set in 1959.

Walleye


Common in Pathfinder and Alcova, this is an ice fisherman’s favorite catch and at an average of 15” and 3 lbs., are well-worth braving the cold. As a schooling fish, if you’re lucky enough to catch one, more are sure to be waiting. The Wyoming Game and Fish walleye record catch set in 1991 weighed more than 17 lbs. and was 34” long.
