We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are thankful for all of you and appreciate your patronage.
As we wrap up the Thanksgiving holiday, it appears we are going to continue on this mild weather pattern as we make our way into December. With day time highs in the 50s and lows above freezing, Grey Reef is open and fishable from Alcova to Glenrock, Wyoming. A little weird but we’ve seen it before. So, how’s the fishing? Pretty darn good. Afternoons are definitely fishing better than the mornings. More bugs and a little warmer water temps in the afternoon. According to General Manager Eric Anderson, a bead pheasant tail in sz. 16 or 18 has been the top bug. Other patterns would be, pine squirrel leeches, reef worms and/or a PAL. He has been sticking between 3-5ft in length and varying his weight run to run. On the streamer front, we have scaled down in size. Mini goldies, twin lakes specials and the old Seth special…the smaller stuff is working better for our crew. The Miracle Mile continues to be a little crowded but for those wanting to head that way, we would suggest swinging a streamer(i.e. kreelex, rusty trombone, peanut envy) in the deeper runs. Well, that’s about it on the fishing front for now. So, if you’re in the area make sure to stop by and see us.
FYI. As we roll into the “off season” our hours have changed a little bit. Current shop hours are as follows, 8am-noon, daily.
