Well I was invited to fish the North Platte River in Alcova Wyoming with my good friend Trent Tatum who owns the North Platte Lodge and Grey Reef Fly Shop. I had a few days to fish before I had to be in Denver for The Drake Film Awards which I had a video submitted in and I was going to take advantage of it. Trent said the hopper fishing was going off and as many people know the North Platte is know for some monster fish. We floated the river for two days and caught some really nice fish, when you go to the North Platte an average fish is 18-20 inches which in the trout world is huge. We caught a ton of those and also put some mid 20’s inch fish in the boat all on hoppers and streamers which was really cool because you get to watch every take! Trent has a beautiful lodge that sleeps 8 and has 8-10 guides fishing for him throughout the year. Alcova is 30 miles outside of Casper which is where you can fly into or you can also fly into Denver and drive up. Trent runs a tight ship over there along with his wife Kathryn and there awesome yellow lab Ally. It is a great place to relax and catch some truely monster Rainbow’s, brown’s, cut throats and cutbows. Tight Lines!
An Average North Platte Fish!
The BEST company at the lodge Ally! Sorry Trent
