North Platte Fly Fishing Report- Grey Reef, Miracle Mile, and Fremont Canyon

Fishing has been spectacular these past few weeks on all three tailwaters! Catching fishing on nymphs, streamers, and even a few dry flies! Flows should stay relatively stable the next week or so, then increase around mid April. It looks like we have some moisture in the forecast over the course of the week, this can make for some lights out springtime fishing.

Fremont Canyon-75 CFS Fishing has been consistently good here. Stick to the smaller end of the fly selection, A red or purple reef worm in size #18-16 as a point fly with a small bug behind has been working well. The Reef’s PAL, Rhinestone, All day may, LAZY, or BH Brassie have all been good patterns. Still concentrate your efforts on the slower deeper water, it’s important to watch out for spawning fish this time of year. They’re fun to watch, but it’s best to let them do their thing. Fremont has been our best place to catch a fish on a dry, a small parachute Adams has been getting it done.

Miracle Mile-1,200 CFS Fishing has been good-great out here with some nice fish being caught daily. Nymphing has been good, we’re having to throw fairly heavy rigs to get ’em. It’s important to adjust your depth and weight regularly to catch fish. Leeches, Reef worms, san juan worms, scuds, and midges have all been working well. The streamer bite is off and on but can be really good on certain days! Articulated flies have been working better than their single hook counterparts. The Art. Goldie, Peanut envy, or the olive Cousin It have been our best bugs.

Grey Reef-Casper 1,000 CFS The reef is fishing great! We’ve had boats on the upper section all of the way down to Bessemer bend. Nymphing on the upper section has been great. Red Reef worms, Purple San juans, Reef’s PAL, Flashbang Midge, Poxyback Baetis, and the Rhinstone have been our top producers. The water below Government Bridge is slightly off color making it perfect streamer water. The Flashier the streamer the better! Dirty Water Fly Co’s Flash Minnow, The Kreelex, Goldie, and sparkle minnows were working!
