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.

Took out Kelly and Orrin Maez fishing at Pathfinder. Fishing was a bit slow but had a fun and rewarding day. While Kelly caught dinner, Orrin possibly caught the walleye of a lifetime. Take a look at his monster wall-hanger!

Just had to share an email Tom Dowd sent about GRA Head Guide Andy Brust and his experience...

Jason,

I have fished with Andy several times over the past year and he has been great. My buddy and I booked a trip for last Sunday (July 3rd), met Andy at the cabins, and he suggested we throw streamers. Little did I know I was about to have my best fishing experience ever! We moved numerous brown trout throughout the day and I was able to land three giant browns; two 24 inchers and a 28"! Not only were we moving a lot of fish, but we were the only boat on that stretch of water. I could not have asked for a better day on the river.

I have floated with a couple of different outfitters on the North Platte over the years, but none have compared to your operation. Andy is an excellent guide, but he's also a good guy. He's very personable and puts you at ease in the boat. Andy knows where the big fish are and he puts me in a position to catch them, and I could not ask for anything more.

You already know what kind of guide Andy is, but I just wanted to let you know. I had the day of a lifetime and an experience I will never forget, and Andy was the reason why. Thank you (and Judi) for running a top-notch outfitting service. As long as I have the opportunity to come up to Casper and fish, I'll be calling Grey Reef Anglers. Thanks again.

Sincerely,

Tom Dowd

Wyoming Game and Fish getting the community involved with their stocking program. 500 brookies traveled by truck to the trailhead, dispensed to a number of backpack wearing mules pedaling bikes, then those mules ditched bikes as the terrain became a little too steep. Great evening and kids did much of the work!
