Beginning just east of the Continental Divide in northern Colorado, the Encampment River flows north into Wyoming almost immediately on its brief journey to join the North Platte. Immediately after leaving Colorado, the river drops through an 18 mile protected wilderness canyon that can only be described as spectacular. For the best experience of this river, take two or three days and backpack with a 3-4 weight and a box of high floating dry flies in the canyon. Deer, moose, elk, mountain lion and other wildlife are here...so take a camera in your pack and enjoy one of the best wild places within driving distance of our shop. For the next 25 miles, the river takes a more meandering course before joining the North Platte just upstream of the Treasure Island access. Upstream of the towns of Encampment and Riverside, WY, access to this jewel of a trout stream is virtually unlimited as much of it flows through the Medicine Bow National Forest. The stream is not a test-your-skills type place...a variety of attractor dries, generic nymphs, and the good old wooly bugger will keep your rod bent.
The Encampment has a short float season so please check with the shop on availability.
