  • North Platte River Fly Fishing Report (11/13/2019)

    It’s that time of year again, shoulder season rates are here and the fishing is great! Take advantage of $100 off of full day and 1/2 day trips, discounted lodging and lodging/guided fishing packages! Fishing remains good even after the the temps have dropped a bit. That being said there are plenty of days that have highs in the 50’s and little wind. Those days have had some incredible dry fly action with pods of fish rising all over the place. You can definitely throw a dry at these pods or another way to go is to  put a small streamer on and make one of the big boys come out and snatch it! This weekend’s weather looks pretty nice, good chance to get up here and get some November fishing in!

    Fremont/Cardwell-75 CFS- Fishing has been consistently good on the nymph rig, a shorter more suspended rig has been out producing the heavier longer ones. Reef Worms, pheasant tails, macgruber midge, Rs2’s, and leeches are all on the menu. The streamer bite has been good on some days, especially the overcast days. the vegetation is still present but definitely fishable!

    Miracle Mile-500 CFS- The Mile has been fishing well even with a lot of pressure, it has been pretty crowded up there. Nymphing is solid with san juans, leeches, scuds,Pat’s Rubber legs, rs2’s, and midges. Swinging streamers is most of what we’ve been doing, the Kreelex, rusty trombone, goldie, and Peanut Envy’s have all been working well. This is true for all three tailwaters but please mind the redds out there, it’s best to just let the fish do their thing!

    Grey Reef- 500 CFS- Fishing has been good from the dam to below Casper. Fishing seems to be the best during the warmest part of the day, that’s your best chance of seeing a baetis or pseudo hatch! When you see fish eating on the surface a well placed parachute adams in #18 is all you need. Streamer fishing has been solid as well. Slow swinging the goldie or kreelex in the deeper runs has been the most productive. Our go-to nymphs have been pheasant tails, flashbang midges, macgrubers, reef worms, leeches. and rs2’s!

    As always of you have any questions stop by the shop or give us a call!
