Firstly, sorry for the lack of reports recently. We have been working on our new website. We still have some tweaking left to do but we hope you enjoy the new site!
So, how’s the fishing? Let us start with water conditions on the North Platte. Both Miracle Mile and Fremont Canyon are slightly off color. This can be attributed to reservoir turnover. Both systems are still fishing relatively well, just don’t expect great clarity. Grey Reef on the other hand is in great shape. Clear conditions from Grey Reef Dam to Glenrock, WY. Per usual the vegetation is more concentrated on Upper Grey Reef, as it is every year at this time. That being said, that’s where the most consistent dry fly fishing is happening. But it’s not easy. It’s technical and a whole lot of fun! Tricos, pseudos and some baetis. Break out the longer leaders and 5X and get ready to get abused. This fish are full of fight and it’s a battle to keep them out of the vegetation. But again, it’s sooo fun! If that’s not your game, you can always head down low to avoid the veg and run the nymph or streamer program…and you also find less technical dry fly eating fish.
