My wife Becki and I would like to welcome you to Fish Tales Guide Service (FTGS) in Casper Wyoming. FTGS offers charter fishing in central Wyoming. FTGS is a multi-species guide service with emphasis on the pursuit of walleye. I primarily fish Pathfinder Reservoir which is a short drive from Casper WY. More outlying reservoirs include Glendo Reservoir, Greyrocks Reservoir, Boysen Reservoir… I retired from working for USDI-BLM in natural resources. I have decades of fishing experience to include guiding and tournament fishing on local reservoirs. I am licensed and authorized to conduct business in Wyoming.
The best way to book a fishing trip is via a phone call (307) 262-5173. We will need to discuss expectations and other details so we can tailor a fishing experience specific for you. Typically, we can accommodate up to two people and possibly three. If your party is larger than that, we may need to discuss other options. Important: We fully understand that thing happen, and a cancellation or other changes may be warranted. We request that you communicate with us and we will extend the same courtesy to you. In lieu of a monetary deposit, a confirmation call is required 48 to 36 hours prior to your scheduled outing or your reservation will be subject to cancelation.
Our established rate is $375.00 for one person and $450 for two. One child under 12 years old may fish free if two 2 persons are booked at the regular price. In addition, a travel fee of $25.00 may be applied for fishing waters farther than fifty miles from Casper. Since rates are subject to change, please confirm current rates and ask if any promotions are in affect.
Note: For quality of experience and safety reasons, we cannot cater to parties larger than what is described.
Fishing is an unpredictable endeavor and outings aren’t always as successful as we may wish. However, you can expect your guide to do his very best to make your experience as enjoyable & productive as possible. To avoid afternoon winds, your guide may suggest being on the water early and you may normally expect 6+ hours of actual time on the water. If guests choose to keep fish, they will be responsible for cleaning and preparing those fish.
You may also expect your guide to:
1) Put safety first.
2) Be upfront and honest. 3)
Assist you in finding accommodations.
4) Provide fishing gear, safety equipment, bait, water and snacks.
Guests are expected to:
1) Possess a valid Wyoming fishing license,
2) Dress appropriately for existing and changing weather conditions. 3) Bring a lunch and drinks if desired.
4) Show up sober and refrain from bringing alcoholic beverages on board.
5) Sign a release of liability statement.
We encourage catch and release fishing, however it is not required. Local reservoirs are not stocked with walleyes and are wholly dependent on natural reproduction and recruitment. Therefore, we suggest releasing all walleyes under 15 inches and female walleyes over 20 inches in length. If a trophy fish is caught the guide will photograph and measure the fish so a replica can be made, if the guest so chooses.
Note: Fish Tales will contribute $150 to purchase a replica of a walleye 29 inches or longer, caught by a guest and successfully released.
