Top-Rated Among Platte Valley Fly Fishing Lodges
20 Miles for Guided Trout Fishing Trips

Come experience guided trout fishing trips at French Creek Sportsman's Club.
Off-Ranch Fly Fishing Trips
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.
