My wife Becki and I would like to welcome you to Fish Tales Guide Service (FTGS) in Casper Wyoming. FTGS offers charter fishing experiences in central Wyoming. We are a multi-species guide service with emphasis on the pursuit of walleye and trout (rainbow, brown and cutthroat). Kokanee, sauger, crappie, burbot, perch, catfish and an occasional bass may also offer angling opportunities. We primarily fish Alcova and Pathfinder Reservoirs which are just a short drive from Casper. More outlying reservoirs include Glendo, Greyrocks, Boysen…
I retired from the federal government (USDI-BLM) having worked in natural resources. I have decades of fishing experience to include guiding and tournament fishing, most of which has been on local reservoirs. In addition, I have been active in conservation via North Platte Walleyes Unlimited for more than 20 years now. 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.
Currently, our rate is $400 for one person and $50 for each additional person (one child under 12 fish for free if two 2 persons are booked at regular prices). - A travel fee of $25.00 may be applied for fishing waters farther than fifty miles Casper. Note: Published rates are subject to change. Please confirm current rates with us when you book.
Fishing is an unpredictable endeavor and there are no guarantees. However, you can expect your guide to do his very best to make your experience as enjoyable & productive as possible, and:
Local reservoirs are seldom if ever stocked with walleyes and are dependent on natural reproduction and recruitment. Therefore, we encourage releasing all fish under 15 inches and female walleyes over 20 inches in length. If a trophy fish is caught your host will photograph and measure the fish so a replica can be made if the guest so chooses. Note: Fish Tales will contribute $100 to purchase a replica of a walleye 29 inches or longer, caught by a guest and successfully released.
