Bug Buffet! North Platte fishing Report

Summer bugs are here and the fishing are LOVING IT! PMD’s, yellow sallies, and caddis are all on the menu now. Fishing has remained consistently good throughout all three tailwaters, we’re even getting some dry fly action! This weeks weather forecast seems to be more of the same, hot and calm, should keep these bugs coming off. We do have some cottage availability early this week, give us a call to get your trip booked.

Miracle Mile- 1,500 CFS The stonefly hatch is winding down, but not the fishing. PMD’s are coming off pretty thick as well as some midges. Pats rubber legs, PSL, Poxyback PMD, rusty RS2, and the all day may have all been killer patterns.

Fremont/ Cardwell 950 CFS Fishing has been great here even with the higher flows, don’t let the big water scare you off, the fish love it! PMD and caddis patterns have been our go-tos. Solitudes poxyback PMD, birds nest, CDC case pmd emerger, or the bubbleback pmd have been getting it done.

Grey Reef- below Casper- 3,000 CFS Fishing has been excellent, especially when the bugs are coming off, midges in the morning, PMD’s, yellow sallies, and caddis midmoring- afternoon. Mercers Poxyback PMD, Juju PMD, all day may, or the CDC rusty RS2 are all great options right now. Keep an eye out for rising fish, a PMD comparadun or the rusty cripple PMD have been getting a few eats!
