Where to go depends on what the fishing enthusiasts are looking for. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is fortunately located in Cheyenne. They are a great resource. They may point a new fishing family to go west on Happy Jack Road to Curt Gowdy State Park to fish for trout at the Crystal and Granite—or they may suggest rivers around Laramie.
An hour north of Cheyenne around Wheatland, there are the Greyrocks and Guernsey reservoirs and Rock Lake and Wheatland Reservoir No. 1, and the North Platte and Laramie rivers. A few hours west of Cheyenne, there are the Seminole, Pathfinder, and Alcova reservoirs and the Miracle Mile of the North Platte River. Of course, south of the city, the State of Colorado also offers many opportunities for gold-medal fishing excursions.
