Fall Fishing is Here! North Platte Fishing Report

It sure feels like Fall is starting here in Alcova and the fish have noticed too! They are eating more and fighting harder than ever! Dry fly and streamer fishing has been the name of the game lately! Looks like more rainy weather rolling in this week with highs in the 60’s-70’s, perfect time to get up here and throw some junk!

Fremont/Cardwell-75 CFS- Fishing has been awesome here with fish eating tricos in the morning and caddis in the afternoon. A smaller para adams in grey or purple for the tricos and a tan elk hair caddis have been our best bugs on top. If dry flies aren’t your thing then try swing soft hackles through rising fish or throwing a streamer at em!

Miracle Mile-500 CFS- The Mile has been acting more like herself, really good on some days and okay on others. That being said we have been catching some really nice fish out there. San Juan worms (pink, purple, red) Prince nymphs, Tung teaser, neverbug in grey, and RS2’s have all been really great patterns.

Grey Reef-below Casper- 1,250 CFS- Dry Fly fishing the trico hatch throughout the entire river has been nothing short of amazing! Then, when that’s over you have your choice of caddis, Baetis, or HOPPERS! The streamer fishing has been good too, NPL guest Brian Vinchur caught a 26″ brown with guide JJ on a thin mint this week!! Nymphing has also been good, our go-tos are prince nymphs, hares ears, psl’s, and rs2’s lately. We have been fishing relatively short 3-5′ indicator to weight with a “b” or two has been solid.

As Always if you have any questions don’t hesitate to stop by or give the shop a call!
