Well, the weather has started to really shape up in Central Wyoming. Yeah we know, it’s winter but over the past several weeks we have had some beautiful days. If you follow us on social media you’ve seen that we are officially back on the water. It’s hard to believe that it is time to start ramping up for another season. Shop orders will start arriving in the coming weeks. That means new patterns, a FULLY stocked fly bin, new gear and more.
So, as for the current North Platte fly fishing report…flows are low and steady and the fishing is solid! Grey Reef is currently at 450cfs, Fremont Canyon 72cfs, and Miracle Mile is hovering around 530cfs. And everyone is running nice and clear. Nymphing and streamers are the name of the game but with the right conditions and a midge hatch we are seeing a few fish on top. Nymph rigs for this time of year are 4-7ft, 1-3B shot…it really just depends on the type and depth of water you are in. Of course the most popular flies to date are as follows; pine squirrel leeches(natural/brown/black), reef worms, PALs, rhinestones, brassies and mayhems. If you go the streamer route a short sink tip or an intermediate line tethered to an articulated goldie or a rusty should do the trick.
Let’s hope we keep getting some windows of nice weather and when we do, give us a shout and take advantage of our offseason day trip/cottage packages. 307-232-9128
