Spring fishing is in full swing on the North Platte. Fishing has been on fire on all three tailwaters lately. With most days hitting around 50 degrees the weather has been good and looks to stay that way through the weekend. Fish are spawning on all tailwaters right now so watch out for the spawning fish. Don’t walk on or target fish on redds, there are plenty of fish in the runs feeding. Don’t forget about the cable closure below Grey Reef Dam, cable to cable all of the month of April.
Fremont-75cfs Fishing has been really good especially with smaller stuff. Mayhem midge, Reef’s LAZY, brassie, all day may, and flashbang midges are all great patterns right now.
Miracle Mile-2,700 CFS- Fishing has been hot since they increased the flows. Makes for more water to fish, leeches, scuds, san juans, eggs, and midges have all been good. Swinging streamers like the rusty trombone or the goldie have been working well.
Grey reef- Casper 1,000 CFS The river looks great all of the way to casper. We floated down to watco bridge in Casper and got some nice fish to eat Galloups Peanut envy a few days ago. On the upper section, Leeches, reef worms, and midges have all been working really well. We have been doing better with a shorter light rig 4-5 Ft indicator to weight a B or a BB as the weight. Fish the softer edges and seams, there are more fish and larger ones than running your flies down the middle.
