Well, here we are. Hard to believe it’s already March and thus far it has been a lamb. Temperatures the past week have been in the 50s and 60s with relatively mild winds. That being said, Grey Reef is at 500cfs and open from the Dam to Casper. Keep in mind, warmer temps are causing the lower elevation snow to runoff, so water conditions have been variable below Government Bridge. The upper is currently in great shape and the fishing, as you would expect, is good. A few fish starting to make redds but we are still on the front side of the spawn. It has pretty much been a nymphing/streamer game as of late. Pine squirrel leech, reef worm, PAL, rhinestone, mayhem midge, pheasant tail-have been our top producing nymph patterns. Length/weight has been 4-7ft with 1-3(BB) split shot. On the streamer front…rusty trombone, goldie, kreelex have been our top picks. We prefer fishing them on the Airflo 40+ fast intermediate line…it just seems to hit the sweet spot in the water column.
We currently DO NOT have any updates in regards to the SPRING FLUSH. As soon as we know anything we will let you know.
