Established in 1998, we are the first permitted fishing outfitter on the Grey Reef section of the North Platte River. For over 20 years we have provided our fly fishing and hunting guests with the best private access on Grey Reef and the surrounding area. North Platte Lodge and The Reef Fly Shop locations, experience and proximity are truly unequalled. Our Grey Reef and Miracle Mile guides are wildly knowledgeable, professional and well seasoned.
None match the experience, the commanding locations or the scope of our private access. With 17 miles of exclusive, private Grey Reef access and 5 private boat ramps you will gain the advantage of wade fishing, accessing and dropping anchor on the most productive water in the North Platte River system. Literally a minute from the boat ramp and the closest outfitter to both Miracle Mile and Fremont Canyon, we are at the epicenter of fly fishing and hunting in Central Wyoming.
Western hospitality is what we do and we do it well! We stand alone, overlooking Grey Reef at the apex location. Unobstructed views, damn good food, private access and our house and guide staff are second to none. This is what has and continues to set us apart. North Platte Lodge is the benchmark and that’s why folks have been coming back for over 20 years. The obvious choice of the discerning Grey Reef angler, you focus on fishing and we do the rest.
Welcome to Grey Reef and the home of the BuffTrout™, The Reef Fly Shop, Cottages & RV is a fly fishing operation unlike any other in Wyoming. Located at the entry to Grey Reef, we defined the term “full-service fly shop”. The Reef Fly Shop’s singular focus is to serve Central Wyoming fly fishing with the most experienced guides, most private access and boat ramps, four stylish and functional vacation rentals, 15 RV sites, drift boat rentals, river shuttles, custom flies, fly fishing gear and the best advice in the biz. Our location is second only to the North Platte Lodge. Even our beer selection is handpicked to align with the soul of Central Wyoming.
At the North Platte Lodge and The Reef fly Shop we have a range of bird hunting, cast and blast, and shooting options. We are comfortable saying we have the best sage grouse hunting anywhere. Early season waterfowl hunts, blue grouse(dusky grouse), Hungarian partridge, preserve hunts and sporting clays-we have a lot of options! Our early duck/goose hunting season generally starts the first weekend of October and lasts two weeks. Days start early on crisp mornings and consist of calling waterfowl over decoys, with retrievers ready for action.
Pathfinder Outfitters (BG-058) is the big game hunting branch of the operation. Packaged hunts utilize the North Platte Lodge for accommodations and meals. Whether it’s a trophy hunt or something a little more specialized, we have you covered. You want to fish and hunt on the same day? We have the guides and experience to make it happen. Our guides are dedicated, knowledgeable, and gritty ensuring an enjoyable experience. In a nutshell, we are not a volume-based big game outfitter. We select the timing of our hunts, allowing us to specifically focus on you. Our goal is to give you the best experience in the best areas.
A true Wyoming playground for sportsmen and women who love the outdoors.
