Good river fishing can be found along the North Platte River from I-80 at Fort Fred Steele State Historic Site all the way to the Gray Reef Area below Alcova Dam. In between lies the famous “Miracle Mile,” well-known for its blue ribbon fishing. Seminoe Reservoir offers some great fishing, particularly in June and July, for both trout and walleye.
