University of Wyoming Sports
Laramie, and indeed the whole state, has few top level professional sports teams (no NFL or MLB) so natives of Laramie strongly support the teams associated with the University of Wyoming. They follow all the games and when the university makes a big win the whole town gets excited.

Fly Fishing on the Laramie River
Some good fly fishing is possible right in town as shown by this fisherman quietly enjoying this past-time. There are fishing outfitting stores in town. Periodically as one travels along the way, a modest store front or home will advertise hand tied flies for sale. Laramie is afterall a great base camp for fly fishing along numerous streams in the high plains region.
Mountain Biking and Hiking Near Laramie
I was just passing though, but it is clear that hikers, rock climbers, hunters, fisherman, and dirt bike enthusiasts have plenty to do in the area. I found two outdoor outfitters stores that were well stocked within the historic old downtown, as well as this funky bicycle store. There are also plenty of hunting and fishing supply stores in Laramie.
