Great Fishing

If you're into FLAT lakes in the middle of the prairie then the Plains Lakes are a good place to visit. I've only been a few times but the fishing is usually quite good.

Looking for some nice places to fish just 15 minutes from Laramie well look know further than the plains lakes. You have a few different lakes to choose from and different sizes that will accommodate float tubes to full sized boats. Well maintained and easily accessible.

Though the lakes in Snowy Range are remarkable. Plains lakes are small with few or no trees and the wind is always blowing, so you will have privacy and a few fish. They are everywhere so seeing one won't take you off course for long, take a look, everything is worth a look. But have a backup plan.

During the fall and early winter the surrounding lakes are great for duck and goose hunting. Fishing is steady year round. As Long as you have cocer from the Wyoming wind ice fishing the plans lakes can be entertaining.

I love Lake Hattie, the fishing is great. On the other hand I do have a couple of grips, !) I hate all the litter in this area it is a shame that nobody respects the privleges given.
