Grey Reef still fishing excellent and the Mile is picking up the pace in recent days.
Streamers at Grey Reef range from small and basic to big and nasty. Casting to risers has been really fun and productive. Cast a streamer to risers? Yep! But you could also take full advantage of situation and get a few on drys. We like a single big streamer like a Dungeon or Home Invader on a floating line for speed and agility. Or scour the runs with a Goldie/Crawdizzle comboo on a sink tip at the Reef. The Mile can be fun with a tip and a Goldie/Platte River Special combo. Fun with old school flies!
Nymphing still with the same things that will produce for the remained of the winter season. Scuds, leeches, worms, midges, crawdads etc. Lazy Midges, PALs, Crystal Midges, Ice Minnows, PSLs all getting ’em at Grey Reef. San Juan Worms, Beady Leaches, foam Wing RS2s etc doing the job on the Mile.
Fremont is fishing well and all the same rigs apply.
Grey Reef water conditions are getting better gradually improving below Government Bridge. It may take a long (10 days) spring flush to really get us back to normal? But , until then fishing will be great and there will be “new” water to discover as the lower sections clear.
