About the laramie river


The Laramie River is a tributary of the North Platte River, flowing through southeastern Wyoming and northeastern Colorado. It stretches for approximately 280 miles and has a drainage area of over 3,000 square miles. The river was named after Jacques La Ramie, a French-Canadian fur trader who visited the area in the early 1800s.

The Laramie River is primarily fed by snowmelt and rain, and contributes to the irrigation of crops in the surrounding agricultural areas. There are several dams and reservoirs along the river, including the Gray Reef Dam, the Miracle Mile Dam, and the Pathfinder Reservoir. These structures are used for irrigation, flood control, and hydroelectric power generation.

The Laramie River is also a popular destination for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and camping. The river is home to a variety of fish species, including rainbow and brown trout, and is known for its excellent fly fishing opportunities. Overall, the Laramie River serves as an important resource for both agricultural and recreational purposes, and continues to play a significant role in the history and development of the region.
