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

Even though our lodging is nearly booked full for the next couple months we DO still have some vacancies. Also we have openings for guided float trips with the best local guides who have been putting countless days on the water guiding and when they aren't guiding they are out there on "Research And Development " trips. If anyone is looking for the opportunity to guide or learn how to guide, and be part of a great team of guides on the country's best trout fishery let me know. Have a wonderful day everyone! More photos of trophy trout tomorrow. ...

Ice Fishing- Make it an Event

Bob and I arrived at Boysen Reservoir, looked at my truck’s thermometer (-22 degrees) and wondered: Do we really want to do this? I drove out on the ice and we began drilling holes over 15’ of water. Soon we were all set up and started catching fish. We caught numerous perch and trout, jigging small spoons and using tip-ups with minnows. Unfortunately, no sauger or eyes. Around noon, we got out the gas burner and began to heat up a pot of chili. Wow! Hot food, hot drink, over cold thick ice; what a game changer. Though reluctant at first, we ended up having another great experience on the ice!
