Orvis Endorsed Platte Valley Fly Fishing in Wyoming

20 Miles for Guided Trout Fishing Trips

The crystalline waters of the North Platte River watershed in Saratoga, Wyoming are celebrated as some of the most revered freestone waters  for fly fishing in Wyoming. Between Brush Creek, French Creek, and the North Platte and Encampment Rivers you have the pleasure of enjoying over 20 miles of pristine, exclusive private water access by way of rafts, drift boats, or wading. Flowing beautifully through broad canyons and sloping valleys, this river is one of the most iconic fly fishing destinations in North America.

At Brush Creek Ranch, our seasoned team includes lead fly fishing guide Jon Rachal and Platte River Valley fly fishing expert and Outfitter Matt Anderson. Providing one guide for every two guests, you’ll receive attentive, personalized service, whether you prefer detailed instruction or advice on how to maximize your time on these storied fishing waters. With over 40 years of combined experience, our guides are familiar with every aspect of Wyoming fly fishing. 

Honored as a prestigious Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge, Brush Creek Ranch offers top-of-the-line equipment and guide services for novices and experts alike to create a truly once-in-a-lifetime fully outfitted fly fishing experience.


Enjoy fly fishing on idyllic Brush Creek as it meanders through the property. Leading environmental design firm, Walsh Environmental, provides ongoing stream enhancement, restoration and trout habitat support as part of our ongoing sustainability plan. From casting lessons to guided wading, the creek offers excellent holding water for brown trout and brook trout under a canopy of towering cottonwood trees. Come experience guided trout fishing trips at Brush Creek Ranch.


We offer both wade and float fishing on private waters throughout the North Platte River valley, on rivers that course through canyons, open ranchland, forested areas and towering cottonwood groves. Trip lengths range from half-day to full-day excursions, with most of the fishing done from our low-side drift boats. Access to these freestone rivers, including the celebrated North Platte and Encampment Rivers and French Creek, is dependent on snowmelt and rainfall, so our guides can recommend the ideal section based on current conditions during your stay. As a rule, floating is usually best from June through September. We also offer wade trips on some of the best water on the Upper North Platte. Depending on flows, wade fishing is usually the best way for anglers to really work a specific section of the water.


Fly fishing in Wyoming is an once-in-a-lifetime experience and all wade fishing, guiding and equipment is included in your stay at Brush Creek Ranch, an Orvis Endorsed Lodge. For pricing and more specific details about your experience with us, call Matt Anderson (307) 329-3084 or submit an inquiry form to plan your fly fishing adventure with our lead outfitter professional.
