Wyoming Fly Fishing Trips With Professional North Platte River Fly Fishing Guides
Fly fishing is a lifelong passion, and there is nowhere better to indulge yourself than right here in Casper, Wyoming. The North Platte River provides some of the best fly fishing anywhere in the U.S. In fact, American Angler Magazine named the Grey Reef section of the North Platte River the “Number One Big Fish Destination” in 2006.

The Miracle Mile and Grey Reef tail-waters are recognized as Blue Ribbon Wyoming fly fishing destinations known for trophy sized Rainbow, Brown, and Cutthroat Trout. The North Platte River in these stretches boasts of very high numbers of fish per mile of river. Wyoming’s Grey Reef has been getting a lot of attention lately as one of the best wild trout fisheries in the lower 48, but don’t worry, there’s plenty of seclusion on these Wyoming Trout fishing waters.

We have wonderful vacation lodge accommodations near Casper,Wyoming right on the North Platte River where you can relax in the hot tub, work out, or do some evening fishing right out the back door.

If you want river lodging and fine dining, then our lodge will be a great fit as it’s located on the Grey Reef below government bridge and 20 miles South of Casper Wyoming.

The Grey Reef dam is only a 10-15 minute drive South of the cabins, and 3-4 miles of public access on Trappers Route below Government Bridge is a short 10-15 min to the North.  And of course our fly fishing guides would love to pick you up at either of our Grey Reef lodging locations so you don’t have to drive.
