FREMONT CANYON'S LARGEST CATCH ON A FLY ROD! - 2012
Cowboy Drifters: Hardest Working North Platte River Fly Fishing Guide Service for the famous Grey Reef, Miracle Mile, and Fremont Canyon tailwaters and The Bighorn River in Thermopolis
Our fly fishing guide service and riverfront cabins are situated near the Lusby boat access, which is the first public take-out of the Grey Reef float between Casper and Alcova, Wyoming. Quality fishing 365 days a year is why American Angler Magazine named Wyoming’s North Platte River America’s #1 Big Fish Destination!
When floating the North Platte, the difference between catching a few fish and losing count of how many you caught has more to do with the skill of the oarsmen than the angler. Owner and Guide, Jason Hamrick, has a 23 year reputation for hiring & training the best Wyoming fly fishing guide service on the North Platte! Because of Jason’s passion and experience, we have developed a proven system of fly fishing these waters that will send you home with a collection of new fly fishing skills & big fish pictures to prove it.
We offer North Platte River Guides to take you on floats, walk/wade, and spey fishing trips. We are happy to customize a fly fishing adventure to meet your needs, schedules, and levels of experience. For example, let us help you celebrate a special occasion or entertain your employees or clients. Whatever the reason, it is our mission to give you the best guided experience possible, guaranteed!
In addition to guided fishing trips, we offer rowing instruction and guide training. Cowboy Drifters can instruct you how to keep the boat where the fish are, even in that Wild Wyoming Wind. We will teach you the skills to navigate any water while reading the runs. It takes time to master the oars, however we can help you get started targeting trophy trout on your own.
Our 3 riverfront cabins near Casper, WY are conveniently located next to the Lusby Boat Ramp, 8.5 miles downstream of The Grey Reef Dam in Alcova, WY. Finish a float and walk to your cabin as the Lusby Cliffs glow from the setting sun. Grill a steak on your front porch and relax as a million stars light up the night sky. Wake up on the peaceful riverside prairie and walk out your front door to fish some of the best runs in all of Wyoming. In other words, let us help you get lost in the peace and quiet.
You do not have to fish with us to enjoy the tranquil lodging. These small riverfront homes are open to the public for rental. Whether you like boating & kayaking, hunting & wingshooting, skiing or snowshoeing, or you just want to get away, we cordially invite all to come appreciate what Wonderful Wyoming has to offer!
