North Platte River

North Platte River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The North Platte runs through a vast, grassy basin called North Park. Not surprisingly, this area is similar to South Park, some 150 miles to the southeast, if you need a point of comparison. The water is a meandering, oxbow meadow-type river and is one of the few rivers that flows north and out of Colorado.

The North Platte and tributaries start high and clear in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness. The North Fork of the North Platte also feeds into the North Platte and is a fine fly fishing stream. Both rivers offer many and varied fishing opportunities, as in the South Park area. There are deep pools, riffles and flat water. All fly fishing techniques will take fish on this river. Types of Fish: Brown and rainbow trout."
