CASPER, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management High Plains District is seeking applications from commercial fishing guides interested in a special recreation permit to operate on the North Platte River.

One commercial guide permit for the Gray Reef to Casper stretch of the river is being offered, the BLM said on Wednesday.

“Since the signing of the 2006 Trappers Route Special Recreation Management Area Plan, some permit holders have cancelled or withdrawn their permits,” the press release said. “The BLM will allow up to one additional permit pursuant to the decisions in the Trappers Route Plan, which allows a maximum of 24 permits.”

The permit application deadline is Friday, Sept. 2.

“The prospectus and application are available online at: 2022 North Platte River Commercial Guide Prospectus Application,” the BLM said. “Please submit your completed application to Cullen Hardy at [email protected]. For questions, contact Hardy or call the Casper Field Office at 307-261-7600.”
