North Platte River

From Casper to the east

The North Platte is a big river, covering lots of territory and diversity in Wyoming. There are quite a few public access points to the river. Be sure to pick up a current Wyoming fishing regulations book, or check locally for regs.

We have listed 6 access points for you here. See the map at the bottom of this page. There are also several parks in Casper which have public fishing access.
