Well folks, as we write this little report it is snowing! Some locations more than others. Casper is currently under about a 10″ blanket of white, while 30 miles to the southwest in Alcova, it might just be a few inches. Currently the Grey Reef stretch of the North Platte is in good shape. For about the past week and a half we have been fortunate to have good water conditions from Grey Reef Dam to Glenrock, Wyoming. That’s a lot of fishable water! Unfortunately it might be different below Casper when the snow starts melting.
Miracle Mile: 1,526cfs
Fremont Canyon: 72cfs
Grey Reef: 505cfs
Nymphing is currently the name of the game. Leeches, worms, annelids, midges and baetis patterns are top producers. 3-7ft on the rig length, with anything from a single #4 split shot to 3BB’s. We know thats a broad range but when the bugs are popping our guides are fishing light/short and when things quiet down a longer rig is more appropriate.
