Re: Fishing around Cheyenne?
Curt Goudie (sp?) state park has a nice lake and there are a few others along with some beaver ponds off Happy Jack road, between Cheyenne and Laramie. Lots of sage brush lakes around Laramie worth exploring as well as the streams and lakes in the Snowies to the west of Laramie. The North Platte originates in North Park near Walden, CO and travels north on the west side of the Snowies, it eventually flows toward Casper, where it is known as the Grey Reef, world famous fishing. To the west you also have the Wind River flowing north out of Boysen reservoir, just south of Thermopolis. Here you have to be careful in the Wind River canyon as you need an indian fishing permit. Top of the canyon is public access near the two campgrounds. I have heard that Bosyen reservoir has some great Carp fishing, but I have never fished there. To the west of Laramie you also have the Laramie river, mostly on private land, but there are a few public access points, best to check with the Four Seasons fly shop in Laramie for details. Realize that in WY the landowner owns the riverbed, so be careful wading that you are on public land. The North Platte between Saratoga and Riverside has some great public access points, just watch for the brown signs along hwy 130.
