Water-based recreation

Monday, January 01, 2018

The North Platte River has played a significant role in American history. Most of the pioneers making their westward trek in the mid-19th century traveled along the scenic waterway that runs through Wyoming.

Today the North Platte has turned into a recreational destination. It offers wonderful opportunities for picnicking, camping, hiking and observing wildlife. It has become known as a prime spot for fly fishing. Designated by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department as a blue ribbon fishery, the river features rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout.

Because it’s central Wyoming’s only floatable river, kayaking, canoeing and rafting are also popular activities on the North Platte.
