Full-Service Guided Fishing Trips On The North Platte River's Premier Trout, Kokanee, And Walleye Reservoirs

As part of the famed North Platte River, our primary fishing grounds of Alcova and Pathfinder reservoirs are not only Blue Ribbon trout fisheries but also hold abundant kokanee salmon and walleye populations.  Just a short drive from Casper, WY, these reservoirs offer some of the finest multi-species fishing opportunities in the Mountain West.  Combined with high quality fishing, we believe that exceptional service and commitment to the client is what makes a guided fishing trip more than just a trip, it becomes an adventure to remember! 

Our professional fishing guide will ensure your trip is custom-tailored to fit your needs and desires.  From a relaxed family outing teaching kids the joy of fishing to a mobile conference room where you can seal a deal with clients (while landing fish), we have you covered.  With a comfortable capacity of 4 people per group, our modern 21' tournament fishing boat is also one of the most affordable options available without sacrificing quality.  Everything we know, have, and do is combined for one purpose, your enjoyment on the water.
