Fly Fish

The Grey Reef section of the North Platte is a Blue Ribbon Fishery that sits right across the street and offers multiple public access points whether you are looking to wade fish or launch your drift boat.

A ten minute drive up the road will lead you to Fremont Canyon. The rugged beauty and scenic views of the canyon coupled with it’s premier fishing access is sure to be a highlight of your time in Alcova.

Last, but certainly not least, another 40 minutes up the road will bring you to the Miracle Mile. The Miracle Mile is the mecca of fly fishing in the West and is the ultimate angler’s paradise.
