Magee Homestead is home to some of the best fly fishing on the planet. We are proudly Orvis-endorsed and provide the ultimate experience for enthusiasts from countries across the map. Our 30,000 acre ranch is traversed by over twenty miles of the crystalline waters of Brush Creek, French Creek, Encampment River, and the renowned North Platte River – all of which are accessible by wading and drift boat. Flowing effortlessly through broad canyons and sloping valleys, the North Platte is an iconic fishing destination, with miles of blue ribbon water full of hearty brown and rainbow trout.
In addition to creeks and rivers, our property includes stillwater fisheries that provide a scenic alternative style of fishing for all ages and skill levels. Our seasoned team of guides are assigned for every two guests, giving every fisherman attentive, personalized assistance no matter what kind of instruction or advice is needed to maximize your time on the water.

Premium Platte Valley Fly Fishing Trips
We offer both wade and float fishing on private waters throughout the North Platte River valley, on rivers that flow through canyons, open ranch land, forested areas and towering cottonwood groves. Trip lengths range from half-day to full-day excursions, with most of the fishing done from our low-side drift boats.
Access to these freestone rivers, including the celebrated North Platte and Encampment rivers, is dependent on snowmelt and rainfall, so our guides can recommend the ideal section based on current conditions during your stay. As a rule, floating is usually best from June through September. We also offer wade trips on some of the best water on the Upper North Platte. Depending on flows, wade fishing is usually the best way for anglers to really work a specific section of water.
Our collection of Ranch stillwater fisheries provide guests an alternative environment for highly productive fishing with either fly or spin gear. For many, nothing beats the exhilaration of getting a trophy trout to rise to a dry fly amidst placid waters as the sun rises or sets on distant peaks.
