Welcome to Casper

Welcome-to-Casper
Big fish, and lots of them. Those six words sum up the fishing in and around Casper, Wyoming. In fact, American Angler Magazine named the section of the North Platte River that runs through Casper as the "#1 Big Fish Destination in the World" in 2005. Local fly fishing guides report that the river has become even better in the years since American Angler gave Casper that illustrious title because of unparalleled trout habitat management by the State, the County, the Bureau of Reclamation and the local fishing guide industry. Casper is firmly on the radar screens (and wish lists) of fly fishermen from throughout the world.

But, world-class fly fishing on the North Platte is not the only fishing game in town. Casper also has two large reservoirs just outside of town that provide year-round fishing opportunities. Alcova and Pathfinder Reservoirs offer record-size walleye, trout and an occasional gigantic carp - a hard-fighting fish that is fast becoming one of the more popular forms of sport fishing in the world.

Whether your passion is angling with a traditional spin casting rod and reel; the timeless beauty and precision of fly fishing; or the inventiveness and dedication of winter ice fishing, you will want to visit our back yard to experience a sense of accomplishment that can only be attained when you Fish Casper.

What the guides are saying

Flows on the Grey Reef are at 4700 CFS and climbing. DO NOT LET THAT SCARE YOU!!! The fishing is amazing! All of your rivers are blown out so come have the trip of a lifetime where you can catch a hundred fish a day!?!? Water clarity has greatly improved and we are starting to see the evening dry fly spell again. In all honesty I've fished/guided this river over 20 years and the fish are way bigger and stronger than I have seen in years!!!! I've been guiding since the second week of January and we have boated a fish over 20" EVERY SINGLE TRIP!!!

Hopefully summer is finally here and we can start throwing those huge foam hoppers and having our own shark week on the North Platte River!

Stay Tuned.....
...

Wishing everyone a Happy Memorial Day! Big thank you to all the men and women in armed forces that have allowed us to celebrate today! Not much has changed with the river. The flows are continuing to hold at 4,500 cfs, but we suspect with Pathfinder starting to spill (if you haven't witnessed this you need to!) That we will continue to flows rising. Red and purple rock worms, leeches, midges, and some mixed baetis stuff as well. Water clarity is great to Lusby and is continuing to improve the lower you get.

Fish Tales Guide ServiceTook Terry and Kerry from Loveland CO fishing yesterday. The water was high, cold and had the consistency of chocolate milk. Despite the conditions, we all had a good time.

5/24/16 Flows at Grey Reef have stabilized at 3500cfs, the fishing is excellent right now. Pictured left is Jade, quite the fly fisher, with a healthy Grey Reef Rainbow caught and released yesterday. The landscape is super green right now, starting to see some fawn antelope along the river while we float. The rainbow trout are just about all done spawning, the cutthroat spawn is in full swing...BWO and Midges the main hatch, waiting to see our first PMD's of the season...Golden Stones, PMD's, Sally's, coming soon get booked today! ...
