  • Hello August! (8/2/2021)

    Summer in Central Wyoming is in full swing!  As most of you know it’s been interesting for the Rocky Mountain West this year.  Low snowpack, very little spring moisture-accompanied with hot and dry conditions.  Not good!  Lots and lots of earlier closures and hoot-owl restrictions have become a very popular theme.  Fortunate for us, conditions on the North Platte remain good.  Driving out to the shop and lodge last week, we took temperatures from Bessmer Bend to Grey Reef Dam.  All temperatures were taken in the middle of the day and we are happy to report 62F or cooler at all locations.  The water temperature below Grey Reef Dam was 55F, approximately.  So, how’s the fishing?  Somewhere between good and great, just depends on the day.  PMDs, sallies, caddis and tricos are whats popping and the fish are keyed in.  Your hard pressed to beat a BH of some sort with an RS2 dropper, if your running the nymph program.  Hoppers?  We are starting to see some fish look up for hoppers and that should only improve as we move later in the month. Streamers have been producing some big fish and some solid numbers depending on the float.  Just last week we had a guest land a 30″ brown on the rusty trombone.  Well folks, thats your current report.  If you’re in the area stop in and see us!
