North Platte Fly Fishing-Big Snow

When big winter weather events make there way through Wyoming, Alcova usually ends up on the short end of the stick.  When everyone else gets a foot of snow we might see 3″.  Well, not this time.  This weekend we saw anywhere from 12″-18″ across our little valley and it was a welcome sight.  Not the best for ongoing construction project but good for the country.  As for the fishing over the weekend, it remains solid.  Nymph rigs, 6-8ft, 1-2BB seem t0 be the ticket…along with micro worms, deep purple, SH scud, UV leeches, and various midge patterns.  We continue to pick up a good number of fish stripping streamers on goodies, articulated goodies, olive yummy’s, and medusa’s.
