Anyone take a Fly Rod with them into this area? Any grouse?
The river west of Caspar is a popular float/fly fishing destination, but it's not where the elk are. This is thirsty country - I think the only place to fish is down low on the river. When I was nearby, We saw Sage hens and no other game birds. There's a short season for them and for some reason I think it's either tightly controlled or on a draw or something, you'd have to look it up.

All over the game birds my friend...Thanks bud!
If you are in the area and gave a day, definitely fish the North Platte west of Casper. The Grey Reef section is one of the very best tailwaters in the country and one of my favorite places to fish. Headed there right after I whack a couple turkeys.
I spent 20 days in the Ferris Mountains last fall which really, is damn near the same place. I saw a grand total of one grouse. I do not know my trout but, did see a bunch of little ones in the small streams up on the mountain.
Thank Lou, will for sure look at that...
The Sweetwater just the north of Green Mountain is an underappreciated gem. A lot of it runs through private in that area, but check out some of the walk in areas off Graham Road west of Jeffrey City toward Sweetwater Station. There are some blue grouse in the timber and plenty of sage-grouse in the brush around Green.
You can catch brookies in the tiny stream that runs through the Green Mountain campground. Fun stuff
That’s the ticket right there...Thanks Kodiak!

Crooks creek southwest of green mountain ( very close) has the same "monsters" that Kodak is talking about in it. Been there three times and can't recall seeing a mountain grouse but there is a giant jack rabbit on top by the radio tower.
