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!

GUIDE LINGO 101: Often times it takes a while to interpret what the heck your guide is talking about, here are a few terms you might hear on the river. You will definitely hear SET SET SET... we all know what "set" means but why is he saying it three times...emphatically...? You guessed it, a big one, so pay attention and set the hook, set it hard, and set it now. If you you miss the fish because you didn't set set set your guide might rub it in by stating you just got FISH SLAPPED, that's right that fish just kicked your butt...emphatically...! Ultimately missing the fish will result in GUIDE-BABBLE at the end of the day when all the guides give you their opinion about what went wrong and how it happened to their cousin in Michigan 6 years ago, this busts-out into several conversations all at once and sometimes results in a wrestling match in the dirt! Real entertainment here folks! The last bit here is some Canadian guide lingo eh...too good not to bring back to our river, your guide might say RIDING THE STOKE NOW ...yep that means you missed a big one (like 30 inches) and you are going to do everything it takes for that second chance because you saw the potential and now you are jacked!!
Grey Reef Anglers wants to thank the awesome fishermen and women who have fished with us this season and years past. Give us a call if you need to get on the water and brush-up on your lingo. We still have availability August through November 307-267-2559

Happy customers here Al and Cyndi Hamilton

FIRE BAN! No fires, charcoal or smoking on public lands. This includes all BLM, Natrona County and State land as well as in the fire pits at the campgrounds along the Grey Reef section of the North Platte River, Casper Mountain, Pathfinder and Alcova, etc. Absolutely no fires, charcoal or smoking on our premises either. We almost lost the lodge last year to a cigarette butt and things are super dry right now. Still lots of fun to be had! Swap water guns for fire pokers. ...
