Grey Reef / North Platte River Report

From what I have heard this weekend, the  Government Bridge to Sechrist float is the way to go right now.  Our guides had a fantastic day there yesterday.  Crawdizzles, Reef worms, leeches, Rs2’s, purple San Juans, and various streamer patterns like the Sparkle Minnow all caught fish.  Visibility is good and the aquatic vegetation is minimal in this stretch.  Grey Reef clarity vastly improved over the last couple of days, but the weeds are starting to hinder the wading angler.  Floating is far more effective at this point.  Not much new with the fly selection on the upper.  Worms, leeches and scud are getting it done.  Take extra care in making sure your rig is free of any moss or grass.  The trout will not eat a dirty fly.  Some caddis are making an appearance in the evenings and the Cable Hole area is giving a lot of fish on a size 18 tan Elk Hair caddis.  Flows are right around 1800 cfs everywhere and the Miracle Mile has been experiencing some occasional clarity issues.  Dirty water from Seminole and Kortes lakes are the likely culprits.  This does seem to  have a negative impact on the fishing there at times.  Fremont  Canyon / Cardwell is still ripping and swinging streamers in the meadow is continuing to produce.
