North Platte Fishing Report

Fishing has been great this past week on all three tailwaters! We got a break from the wind the past few days, but have gotten some snow. Despite the weather the fishing was great yesterday! A tan streamer was the ticket!

Miracle Mile has been fishing consistently well these past few weeks, unfortunately the road has been not as good. Always be sure to check the road conditions before heading out there, even overnight the road can become drifted over and impassable. Nymphing has been producing some nice fish, leeches, analids, scuds, and midges are great go-to wintertime patterns.The Reef’s goldie or tan flash bunny have been great streamers to start with out there. There are plenty of fish willing to eat streamers in the winter.

Fremont/cardwell has also been fishing well with relatively no pressure. Throwing a nymph is still the most productive way to catch fish here, but on the right days you will see a good number of fish looking up. The Sipper in black or a small Parachute Adams should fool them! As far as nymphs go, a tan or amber scud followed by a small midge pattern has been working well.

Grey Reef and down had been the most consistent of the tailwaters. Wading and floating the upper section has been great. Make sure you concentrate your efforts on the slower tailouts of the runs, this time of the year you will not find many fish in the faster water at the top of the runs. Again, leeches, analids, scuds, and midges have all been getting fish.
