North Platte River
Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the stretches of the North Platte to experience beautiful scenery and some of the best fishing for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout in the country. The 30-mile Gray Reef stretch is hailed as of one of the most productive passages of the North Platte River and considered by many to be the number one trout-fishing destination in the lower 48 states.
The Fund worked collaboratively with the Bureau of Land Management and the Wyoming Game & Fish Department to acquire this property and open it to walk-in public recreational access. This project was made possible with the support of the Wyoming Congressional delegation, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, the Natrona County Commissioners, the Wyoming Fly Casters, Places We Protect: Wild Havens, and individual sportsmen.
