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.

Conservation Ethic – Big Fish
We all know people who find it difficult to release any fish (example walleyes) regardless of size. Typically, big walleyes (4 lbs and up) aren’t the best table fare and are almost always females. These big females produce a tremendous number of eggs proportionate to their size. Unless an exceptional fish is wanted for the taxidermist, why not take a picture and release the fish??? Better yet, the quality of most replicas is unmatched, take some pics, release the fish and get a replica. It will make you feel good! (:

Joseph GoddardEven if it is exceptional, why not take good pictures and measurements, then have a replica made!

Fish Tales Guide ServiceTotally agree, was thinking along the lines of "baby steps" for some people. Personally, I believe replicas look better. Think I will edit post and incorporate your suggestion.

8/22/16 The big brown trout keep coming in on our guided trips, this time it was Rod Riley with one of the better looking brown trout I've seen all summer just based on color and health, this fish had great girth and was just 23inches in length but well on his way to trophy status. Congrats Rod Riley on a great fish! Grey Reef continues to have flows drop and the water is clearing up, I'm not sure I have ever seen water this clear in August in over 15years of guiding Grey Reef, Tricos are giving our clients a crack at dry flies in the morning and the streamer bite is good, of coarse nymph fishing still produces the most fish but not always the biggest!

Those big browns are few and far between in Casper's section of the North Platte. Since I moved here about six weeks ago I have seen two brown trout in this section of river, both under 10 inches. However, today my clients and I got lucky and got a 22 inch brown on a streamer! Im feeling very fortunate that I got to witness one of these fish get caught on my boat
