Living in Wyoming, and more specifically Casper, you know how great the fishing opportunities are for anglers. As much as we'd like to keep that as secret, the world knows too.

Fishing, recently compiled the Top 9 Best Fall Fishing Destinations in the United States. The list is really quite impressive, with places like Kissimmee, FL, Virginia Beach, Va, and Lake of the Ozarks, MO.

Toward the top of the list, there's a very familiar location, that I think you've heard of. Casper! Yep, Casper, Wyoming sits at #2 for Best Fall Fishing Destinations in the country.

I mean, not that there was any doubt that it's a place where fishing dreams live.


The only place in the country that has better fall fishing than Casper, is one of the cities that is always ranked toward the top for having the best year-round weather, San Diego, California.

Here's How The Top 9 Looked From Fishing

  1. San Diego, CA
  2. Casper, WY
  3. Lake of the Ozarks, MO
  4. Grayling, MI
  5. Buffalo, NY
  6. Berkshires, MA
  7. Virginia Beach, VA
  8. Asheville, NC
  9. Kissimmee, FL


Not only does San Diego have great weather, but it also has off-shore fishing opportunities. You'll have a chance to catch large fish like Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, as well as, Halibut, Sand Bass and Rock Fish.

Here in Casper, the fishing is way different. Actually, you could say that Casper is the #1 Fall Destination for fresh water fish like Brown and Rainbow Trout. The fishing on the North Platte River through the Casper area is some of the best in, not only the US, but the World.

Stretches like the Miracle Mile, give anglers the best chance to catch 'personal best'  fish, be able to experience the thrill of the chase and the trophy that will make all their buddies jealous. Not to mention you're going to be looking at some of the best views you'll ever see.

It's really cool to see how much the rest of the country, acknowledges and pines for, the opportunity to ever get the same chances, that are right here in our backyard.
