Luke Opitz

Luke was born in Aberdeen, SD and moved to Casper, WY at the age of 8. Luke learned how to fly fish at a young age. On the weekends you could often find Luke fishing with his dad and brothers. Luke started guiding for us here at the Platte River Fly Shop twelve years ago during his summer breaks from classes at UW. Luke obtained a degree in petroleum engineering but has continued to chase his passion of sharing fly fishing with others. Luke is in his true element when he is on the river catching fish. His patience, fun personality, and love for fishing make him a great guide to be out on the water with. When he is not on the water with clients, he can still be found on the water with his three small boys and wife who also love to fly fish!
