My Public Lands Roadtrip: North Platte River in Wyoming
During the 1800’s the Oregon Trail, Mormon Trail, California Trail and the Pony Express Trail all converged along the North Platte River. Today, the North Platte River is considered a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream, with approximately 4,000 trout per mile. Anglers come from across the globe to try their hand at fishing along Trappers Route, near Casper.
