Central Wyoming is covered in snow. After about 24hrs straight we are probably looking at 8-10″ in the Alcova area. That’s a pretty good amount of snow for us! Let us hope the upper drainage is getting it as well. Enough with the weather, here’s an updated fishing report for the North Platte River.
Grey Reef: 450cfs Fremont Canyon: 76cfs Miracle Mile: 535cfs +/-
Nymphs: amber scud, rhinestone, PAL, pine squirrel leech, mayhem midge, reef worm
Streamers: rusty t, goldie, articulated goldie, Seth special, twin lakes special
Conditions are what you would expect for mid-winter. Low and clear. With temperatures dropping, lower Grey Reef (downstream of Lusby) is rolling some slush ice and shelf ice is building as we speak. So if you want to hit the Reef, planning on staying up top. As of yesterday the upper is still floatable but that could change any day. With this storm you also want to be careful if you have plans to head out to the Mile. Adhere to the old Boy Scout motto, “Be Prepared”. We don’t currently have updated road conditions after this past storm but…our guess is, it’s probably pretty sporty heading that direction. Overall, the fish have mostly slid in their winter haunts. Plan on concentrating on the lower half of the run. Now, we aren’t ruling out fish in other places it’s just gonna be a little more productive in the slower, deeper water. Primetime has been late morning, early afternoon as you would expect.
