Fly Fish Fremont Canyon Wyoming

Today's Blog Post

North Platte River
The canyon is set between Pathfinder and Alcova dams.

We offer lessons and guiding in Fremont Canyon, located in Wyoming. 

Q: I hear the hike in/out of Fremont Canyon is tough?

A: Yes - see above photo.  There are a few access points, including from the meadows and mid-canyon downhill goat trails.

Q: Is the hike down worth it?

A: Less anglers equals less pressure.  The canyon is legendary for holding big, healthy, strong trout.  

Q: I have bad ankles, knees, etc - do you recommend it?

A: No!  This is advanced hiking, walk-wade, and technical fishing.  There are plenty of other safe locations to fish in Wyoming.

Q: About how many fish can I expect to catch, and what is the size range?

A: Depending on skill level, and length of time fishing, we've had clients catch up to 20 fish, and the average size range is 14" - 20", with a few up to 30".  Add in rocky boulders, strong currents - you will be challenged to land trophy trout!

Q: What techniques will we use?

A: Nearly all techniques work.  Using fly rods 4wt-6wt, we regularly use tight-line and drop-shot nymphing, dry flies, dry-dropper, and downstream wet-fly swings.

Q: We might stay in the Alcova or Casper area - can we do a fly casting lesson one day, and then hire you to guide us the next day?

A: Yes.  We highly recommend the combination of fly casting lessons and guiding.  In fact, we can customize a fly fishing program for you, e.g. 1-2 hours casting instruction, followed by 2-6 hours of guiding (catching fish), on the same day or multiple days. 

Q: How long is a day of guiding and what are your prices?

A: We offer four, six, and eight hours per day.  Please see pricing information in the link below.
