Fish the North Platte River


If uncrowded waters teeming with blue ribbon trout are the stuff of your dreams, look no further than Casper. Once named the world’s #1 Big Fish Destination by American Angler Magazine, Casper is widely considered to be Wyoming’s top fishing spot by anglers around the world. Curtis Fleming, host of the Outdoor Channel’s popular Fly Fishing Chronicles calls Casper “a true trout angler’s mecca” and vows to fish it “year after year.”

Casper is the perfect place to have the fishing experience of a lifetime — be it along the famed Miracle Mile stretch of the North Platte River or among the supremely accessible waters through the city’s urban core. Both areas offer anglers the opportunity to experience a blue ribbon trout fishery with 2,200 to 4,000 fish per mile. There’s also the Grey Reef area, where rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout can tip the scales at more than 10 pounds. And despite the area’s notoriety, its waters remain uncrowded all season long.

While the North Platte waters are renowned, Casper also offers two nearby reservoirs for year-round angling, trolling or ice fishing. For a successful trip that is both relaxing and worry-free, consider hiring one of Casper’s expert guides. You’ll find a complete list of top guide shops along with a wealth of other local information including photos, videos, weather reports, fishing events and maps at
